Ribs were tender and delicious. Macaroni cheese was amazing. Basically, everything we ordered was great and we couldn't fault it! Be prepared to wait a little while for a table - but it's worth it! Definitely worth a visit if you are anywhere nearby.

The service and the value were excellent. The food was truly amazing. We had a large party and I sampled many things: tender ribs falling off the bone with full flavor and little fat, the hoe down was maybe my favorite, but hard to chose, the brisket was sublime!, the shrimp among the best I've had. Ok, i did not... More

I have never eaten at a BBQ place better than this! Wing are the best, meaty but not a lot of fatty skin... Ribs add amazing and beef brisket sandwich is in my top 5 of all time!

We arrived at LAX and went straight to Baby Blues BBQ after watching the DDD show. The food did not disappoint. By 1130 am when they open, there was a line of about 20 people. We were quickly seated and ordered. We chose a bit of everything, from brisket, pulled pork and chicken wings, to banana pudding. Our food came... More

We love this place!!! The corn and cornbread are amazing!!! The stewed tomatoes were good but had a propane flavor. Everything really is really good. All of the sauces rocked!!! Someday we want to try dessert ...we're always too full. Super cool place! Sweet tea is soooooo good.

We had a large group of 24 arrive on a Thursday evening expecting to wait for tables. In ten minutes we were seated and had drinks in front of us!! Robb did a fabulous job of configuring our seating to allow for easy conversation and sharing of food. Got the Extravaganza platter: WICKED! This joint knows how to cook meat.... More

Without a doubt!! Baby Blues BBQ lives up to the rave reviews. We almost missed going when planing our trip because the address says it's in Los Angeles and it's actually in Venice. We were staying off Rose Ave in Venice Beach and Baby Blues is just off Lincoln and Rose. We just had to try it and thought we... More

You get a ton of food here, and it's all extremely heavy and satiating. They do what they do very well.
