As someone else said, these guys know how to do BBQ! I ordered brisket and husband ordered pulled pork and decided to share. Portions didn't look like much when they arrived but the little bowls hold a deceiving amount of meat! Tasty and tender. I like the fact you have a choice of sauces on the table rather than having...

This place has tons of ambiance. If you get scared off easily by run-down places, this likely isn't for you, but I personally loved the decor. The food came quickly, the service was prompt, the portion sizes were large and everything tasted good overall. Some items were a little dry, but the taste was good. I would go back if... More

This place knows BBQ. Their ribs; memphis and baby back are to die for. They serve kool aid! which is a winner for me. The only thing I'm not too happy about is their lines... Since it's popular you're going to have to wait to eat. Especially days like father's day! Totally worth the wait tho... You can't get bbq... More

We ate here for lunch. The building was typical for a rib shack. We ate outside. My kids ordered Pork Sandwiches. I ordered 1/2 Baby Back Ribs a’ la carte. The ribs were good and tender, but the highlight of the meal was the BBQ sauce. It was soooo good! I asked for bread to make a rib sandwich but... More

My wife and I ate here back in July one evening. The inside is run down and divey. My wife order burnt ends, and I ordered the beef ribs. My wife also ordered corn on the cob, and another side. I got corn bread. I thought that everything would come out dry, because the wait staff put a variety of... More

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
