Family gathering was across the street but nothing on menu I would eat so I came here for the Sliced Brisket (17.95 with 2 sides). Took food to go and actually took it back to be with family. Opened the container and at first I was impressed with the quantity of food. But then reality set it. Brisket was sliced... More

Great food with great flavor. The pulled pork is incredible. If you go for lunch, try one of the meals that allows you to try a little bit of everything. Definitely worth the side trip to receive excellent portions in a relaxed environment.

Driving into Venice to visit some friends at Baby Blues and we were a little wary at the location of the restaurant. But appearances can be deceiving. The small restaurant had a great menu and great food. Must be a meat lover. We were greeted happily at the front door and promptly given a table for four. Ordered drinks which... More

Stopped in on a trip to Cali in 2013. Had Diners, Drive ins and Dives in my TOMTOM and pulled up Baby Blues BBQ and stopped in. Everything was from scratch and was amazing. From the Cornbread, Greens, Beans, Mac and cheese. I had the Beef Brisket, Nice smoke ring and flavor. After eating in Memphis, this place topped Central... More

Went here on a week night and it was quick to get a table, though often when I drive by, there is a line. Service was okay but very friendly. Clearly they are proud of the food they serve and love goes in to this place. We ordered a selection of the ribs and sides. The ribs were tasty but... More

This is definitely in my top three for brisket anywhere in the country. The sliced here is the best. I highly recommend the mashed sweet potato which is my favorite, but all of the sides are as good as the brisket. I have been several times now for lunch and dinner. The service is always prompt and friendly.

I'm born and raised in Texas, so I know my bbq. Upon approach to a bbq restaurant you should be able to smell the place before you reach it; not this restaurant. BBQ smoke and smell can penetrate any LA smog. This place thinks by offering all different types of sauces, pile high coleslaw on the tri tip sandwich,fried green... More

I stopped in initially to try the Fried Green Tomatoes which are a favorite of mine. To my chagrin, the Venice location does not carry them, just the West Hollywood location has them. Since I was already there, I ordered the tri-tip sandwich. The waitress asked if I wanted the special which included a side and drink for an addition... More

We have passed by Baby Blues BBQ a few times & decided to stop on our way back to Seal Beach from Union Station. The first thing you notice is the aromas wafting towards your nose, then you get inside & it has a Southern feel to it. Since it was lunch time we each had a lunch special; one... More
