The place to get American cuts of BBQ with a Filipino flavor.
Not quite like Southern BBQ rib shacks nor traditional Filipino fiesta food. This is BBQ born from the backyards of Southern California boogies. 50% Mom. 50% Pop. 100% L.A..
Established in 2009 as a small-scale catering company, the family business has grown each year. With support from family, the block, and community, The Park’s Finest was able to open its doors to the public in January 2012. The Park’s Finest now functions as an eatery near Downtown L.A. that provides fast casual convenience with a sit-down dining experience.
The mission of The Park’s Finest is to provide premium quality BBQ with a distinct flavor grown from 20 years of experience and family tradition, by
introducing a Philippine island take to the backyard boogie. The Park’s Finest’s core commitment encompasses satisfying the people’s appetites, contributing to the revitalization of our local communities, and fostering a business model that is engaged with the health and well-being of our employees.
The Concordia Family has been mastering the art of BBQ for generations.
Meat became the canvas to showcase the cooks’ skills on the grill while brutally honest friends and family became the critics. The Concordia’s were always counted on to handle the neighborhood’s BBQ needs. “Big Tony” Concordia experimented with cane and pineapple, simmered with soy sauce, peppers, and spices to create a flavor that appealed to his Filipino palette. This established a recipe for the sauce that has been passed on to his sons and grandchildren.
Big Tony’s third son, Chef Johneric, has taken this service on the road with the very same team of families that he grew up with in Echo park. The Bautista’s, the Pajimula’s, the Araquel’s – have been instrumental in innovating and developing the recipes that are served on The Park’s Finest menu today.
