Amazing burgers!

We got here to taste burgers or ribs. Finally we had a couple of their burgers: simply one of the best never tasted in US. They serve with mashed potatoes and bread very very good. I absolutely suggest you.

There is ALWAYS a group of people waiting around on the street outside of this restaurant and there's a very good reason. Baby Blues serves food that tastes like they've got every great Southern barbecue cook in America in their kitchen. Since that's impossible it must be that they've got the good spirit of every great Southern chef in there... More

After a marathon day of House of Cards we decided to finally leave the hotel and seek out the best BBQ we could find. Of course we didn't dine in because HOC was still waiting for us back in the room. I know, sounds pathetic. Who goes all the way to LA to stay in the room watching HOC. Someone... More

Came here tonight as part of a large party. I would suggest reservations as it got very busy! I have the sliced brisket with collard greens and mashed sweet potatoes. The sliced brisket was just like tri tip- sliced long and served dry. Tons of sauces on the table- my favorite was XXX Porno. It was spicy and tasty!

Do not be scared by the building or appearance. The food here is really some of the best barbecue I have ever tasted. The building, location, utensils, plates and furniture are a tad off putting. Our daughter took us for dinner as she lives in Venice and this place fits right in to the Venice culture. Order the pulled pork... More

Food was delicious! Better than Sylvia's in Harlem. Lunch sandwiches range from $9-$12 and include a drink and a side. Highly recommend!

This is a great place to eat meat dishes. Smoked beef, brisket, pork, chicken and RIBS plus lots more. The meat is so juicy and tasty you'll be licking your fingers. Recommend the ribs or burger, wings are a great starter and I loved the corn on the cob. Plenty of sides available portions are good size so you may... More

Very busy when we arrived at 7.30pm but they found us a table. Lovely attentive waitress who talked us Brits through the menu. Ordered drinks and they were delivered within 2 mins. We ordered a family tasting plate which contained two types of ribs, bbq chicken, pulled pork and brisket. Also had sides of chicken flavoured rice, mash potato, coleslaw... 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.
