Bigmista's Morning Wood Restaurant Review

: Fans of breakfast and Long Beach barbecue mecca Bigmista's can rejoice at chef/owner Neil Strawder's Bigmista's Morning Wood. The menu highlights smoked meats in morning dishes like "pig candy" pancakes --- bacon cooked into a pancake topped with smoked bacon, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. There's also a breakfast bowl with eggs, cheesy grits and bacon, and a breakfast plate. Lunch features barbecue plates and Bigmista's sammiches. Get there early for the specialty "countdown burger" --- they only make 30 per day.
