Restaurant Review: Cordon's Smokehouse and Grill in La Crescenta, California

Here is a Lomolocation and review of an excellent, new, Mediterranean style barbecue restaurant in Cordon's Market in La Crescenta, near Los Angeles, California. Also, in the same market, is a Mexican and Salvadorean take out counter, also excellent.

Cordon’s Smokehouse and Grill is a wonderful Mediterranean style barbecue restaurant, located in the back of Cordon’s Market. They are, truly, all about the meat, smoke roasting all their cuts on either an old fashioned charcoal smoker grill or in a modern smoker oven, depending on the meat. Steaks and hamburgers are flame grilled. Brisket and turkey legs are done in the old fashioned smoker grill, and things like tri-tips and chickens are done in the smoker oven. Everything is simply prepared with just a salt and seasoning rub. Any sticky sauces are on the side. They have their own barbecue sauce, hot and mild, dispensed in the dining room, and you can buy it bottled. They bottle it themselves. They opened February 2013 and have evolved wonderfully, since. There are also smoke roasted vegetables and vegetarian items on the menu.

Here’s a shot of the menu:

All portions are very large and could, definitely, be enough for two. Here are photos of the restaurant and staff:

I rate the food as 4 1/2 out of 5 and ambience 3 1/2 out of 5.

Also in the Cordon’s Market, on the other side of the meat counter is La Cocina Cordon’s, another complete kitchen, preparing Mexican and Salvadorean foods to go, also excellent.

Here’s a shot of their menu:

    This is a hell of an article to endure just before starting a colonoscopy diet. (Summary: Can't eat anything good!) Great article and great photos!
