You are hungry and you want something different,
and this writer tells you to go to Robin's Woodfire 
BBQ on Rosemead, you say " I have driven by thatplace a thousand times and I thought it was just acoffee shop".

Do you have kids? I do, anyone need one untilthe economy picks up again, she is well mannered?
Just kidding honey, but I will need that iPhoneback, with the receipt.

A certifiable winner on every Wednesday andSunday Night is Robin's where the Kids eat for 
free!! I have a feeling we can all afford that one.
With each adult entrée your child can eat for freefrom the kids menu. No kids, you say, well theyalso offer all you can eat Rib Tips for ($13.95).

Now let's review an American favorite!!! It is 
also one of my personal favorites, BBQ, not the 
oven roasted version which Tony Roma's panders. 
No, Barbeque is made low and slow. Low heat 
and slowly cooked. There is only one authentic 

BBQ in The San Gabriel Valley; you guessed it, 
Robin's Woodfire BBQ and Grill in Hastings 

Owner and head politician Robin Salzer hasperfected the BBQ at his name sake. Robin, will 
readily admit it took a few months to perfect theBBQ at Robin's. Robin hails from Milwaukee and 
opened Robin's 33 years ago this month. The 

original menu had everything from breakfast, to 
pizza, nachos and little bit of the BBQ. About ten 
years ago Robin made the decision to go strictly 
BBQ. "Everyone in the neighborhood, thought I 
was crazy," Robin recalled. But, "I decided to stay 
the course". The result is some of the best BBQ in 
all of Southern California. The awards in the past 
five years include: Best of City Search, numerous 
Best of Awards by local newspapers, write ups 
in the LA Times and a feature in Westways 

Depending on the meat, each entrée is cookedbetween 4 to 6 hours on wood. The sauce is then 
put on the meat about twenty seconds before meatis done. This is done to avoid burning the outsideskin of the meat. 

Prices range from ($8.95) for salads to ($35.95)
for the ultimate Garbage Can Combo. Check outmy food blog for pictures peterdillstumblr.comThe combo includes chicken, beef ribs, tri tip,
baby back, spare ribs and a beef link. The garbage 
combo is big enough for two people

What to order: The Beef Ribs are a must!! 
Four rib dinner ($19.95) and the six Rib dinner is($29.95). Robin tells me the ribs are notched, thus 
insuring extra meat. For dessert order the peachcobbler, its house made
