great homestyle food

The restaurant is certainly nothing fancy. Lots of street parking which was good. Very small so call ahead and check out the wait time. We had a family plate, ribs, chicken cornbread and mac and cheese. Everything was delicious. Moderate prices. The service was very fast. Certainly can be called a... read more

We had a family plate, ribs, chicken cornbread and mac and cheese. Everything was delicious. Moderate prices. The service was very fast. Certainly can be called a homestyle bbq place. The ribs are amazing.

We started with ChickenWings which were excellent, continued with Baby Back Ribs, and Memphis Style Ribs, both were also, excellent. Sides were very good, specially the coleslaw which was exceptional. Portions were huge ! We simply couldn't finish what we ordered. Table next to us were experienced guys who ordered two main courses for three .... much wiser ... As... More

I'm not normally one for BBQ. It always seems to be dry and overly sweet. However, Baby Blues BBQ was one of the best lunches I've ever had. The food was truly to die for. Savory, perfectly seasoned and as tender as could be. Also loved the quirky location and will be sure to visit many more times.

Amazing bbq place in Santa Monica.Visited this place twice during my visit and both the chicken and the ribs are really really good. Also recommend the spinach and the corn. And the key lime pie for dessert <3

We were advised by some locals to visit this place as the 'best ribs in LA' and we were not disappointed. The waiter helped us choose our platter as we were not sure of the portions and we had a good choice of baby ribs, texan beef ribs, pulled pork and chicken all delicious. This all came with a choice... More

Good value, great portion size, attentive service without being overbearing. A visit with 3 friends in mid June, one Mason platter, couple of iced teas and I left contentedly stuffed. My only gripe would be the quality of the sides...burnt strange tasting cornbread and Mac and cheese that was just mush, a pretty bland mush at that. Overall a solid... More

We came here for dinner, we wanted to try something other than Mexican food. The service was cool and so chilled out and so was the atmosphere. The price was average, around $16 for a main. Sadly we didn't like the food at all, it just wasn't for us. The barbecue flavours are an acquired taste, even the macaroni was... More

Very friendly staff full of smiles. The sauces were fun. But the BBQ. Being the meat. Just OK. Much better with the sauce. So long as you know that's what you're getting into you're set!

They deliver!! How did I not have this information? How have I lived in West Hollywood for seven years and never been privy to this?!?! Yesterday, a hot boy delivered brisket and hushpuppies to my door. Oh Baby Blues, you're my bestie. -Perfect, lean, flavorful brisket. -Fresh creamed spinach. -Corn on the cob that will make you question if it... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
