THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Territory BBQ + Records Restaurant Review

: In case Beck needs a noshing spot for some Southern-style smoked inspiration, Silver Lake's hippest, quirkiest barbecue restaurant-cum-record store fills the bill on Hoover Street. Surreal taxidermy (check out the armed squirrels), post-punk tunes and a vintage fridge filled with Cheerwine, Coke and orange pop flank a duo of back patios that hosts laconic hipster diners hanging out alongside the smoking meats. Belly up to the counter (to equally diffident servers) to order Southern specialties like a smoky, fragrant pulled pork, fried catfish with a crunchy cornmeal crust, and most likely the best fried chicken on the Eastside. Brined for two days, it’s moist and flavorful on the inside, and crispy decadent on the outside. Expect pork ribs on the weekends only. Down-home sides are at their best with savory collard greens and soulful baked beans, but order the mac ‘n’ cheese only if you like Velveeta. Homemade pies and cobblers vary by season. And wipe those greasy fingers off before you shop for rare vinyl next door.
