If you are out in the Riverside area, check out Smokey Canyon on Canyon Crest Drive. Always good product, nice folks, inviting place. Can't be beat. The place is less than a mile from work and home, so I'm there quite a bit. Try the cheesy potatoes. The tri-tip sandwich is outstanding.

Willy's in Agoura Hills.
I've tried most of them, and most were not good.
The best, in my opinion is Willy's in Agoura Hills, off the 101 freeway. It is generally in the LA area. They smoke all meats for up to 15 hours, and the smoker in the back is always going. Restaurant is up scale in decor, and friendly staff and owner.
It is five stars and most of the rest are 2 stars. But comparing them to places in Texas or KC , they would be 3 out of 5 stars.

Of course there is Texas Tyler Hogly Wogly, http://www.hoglywogly.com/, in Van Nuys( L. A.) Its been there for 50 years, and some people swear by them . I like them also. Decore hasn't changed in 50 years. But, bath rooms are like walking into an elegant french chateau.

Update- June 4, 2014-Willy's is now closed. And I forgot to mention that when ordering at Hogly, always ask for the meat to be dry( no house sauce) and not burnt( like in burnt ends). And Smoke City is better now.

eh Smokey Canyon is good but its not authentic bbq.
and definitely not a place to go all out your way to eat at. I go there every now and then because its very close by and you really dont got any good bbq options out here
