robins bbq 300x225 Robins Wood Fire BBQ Robins Wood Fire BBQ East Pasadena Barbeque American  photoBlues on the stereo, wood smoke in the air, ribs on the table . . . this is living. Barbecue zealots (and they are many) argue ceaselessly on web sites like about which places are best in Southern California; Robin’s usually rates highly, and it deserves to. The meats are smoked over mesquite and hickory, and they’re appropriately tender and soaked with flavor. A swell kids’ menu (kids eat free on Wednesday night!), good sides (blueberry cornbread, pecan cole slaw. baked beans), fun retro sodas and beer (Pabst Blue Ribbon on tap!), a kitschy Americana décor and friendly waiters make the wait for a table seem well worth it. Sunday night is all-you-can-eat-night.
