Awesome BBQ and Great Catering!

Baby Blues BBQ Catering is OUTSTANDING!!! I used them to cater my Dad's 70th birthday for about 25 people. They arranged for everything (BBQ rental, tables, setup, serving, clean up, and serving SENSATIONAL food). Their team was as friendly and helpful as imaginable...professional and easy to... read more

The food is amazing, lets get the important thing out of the way first. It's good value and packed full of flavour and succulent goodness. The ribs I had fell off the bone and were still juicy and tender, but with a good crisp coating. The decor is also amazing, with rustic and authentic church benches to awesome artwork. A... More

It was our last night in the States and well, we felt like some beef, steak, anything RED meat category would do it. We totally lucked in, yes, lucked in (we had a long discussion at the end of the night with the staff trying to explain/defend "lucked in" to them)!! What a great place, very unassuming, we weren't too... More

Fab place to eat - if you can then book as we had to wait an hour for a table but well worth the wait. Chose one of the deals - the 4-6 person meal so we got a mix of everything. There were 5 of us and plenty to eat. The ribs are to die for. Great service, very... More

In our holiday in Los Angeles, we decided last night to eat ribs. We did not know any special restaurants for that. I put in our device: "Best ribs in LA". The first restaurant in the list is Baby Blues. So we drove to Lincoln blvd. The restaurant looks outside as a garage and if we had not known something... More

On our way down to San Diego and we stopped by this awesome BBQ restaurant. The menu was simple yet succulent. Rack of ribs, pulled pork, brisket, cornbread, mac & cheese, beer, mash, and hot sauces! The beer list isnt extensive but its good. The razorback is the perfect and probably most popular item (1/3 rack of ribs + pulled... More

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.

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.
