I've been going to Baby Back Blue's for 7 years, since I started working in the area. Went last week and it was AWFUL! Got the Smokin' Deal with pork, cucumbers and mashed. The mashed potatoes had the consistency of grits and the pork was so bland and cold I couldn't even choke it down. Terrible, I won't be going... More

I often order Baby Back Blues as carry out and have also used them to cater parties. Our family favorites are the Pulled Pork and Pulled chicken. We love the spicy BBQ sauce; it is very spicy. The atmosphere is very casual. You order your food at the counter. And service is always quick.

Of all of the BBQ I have eaten across the country this place was by far and away the best. The amazing smell hits you before you even walk in to the place. I ordered the large pulled chicken sandwich and every last bite was awesome. Sides are generous and offer plenty of flavor. There is a nice variety of... More

They have the best pulled pork, chicken and beef around. There is more than enough food if you order the meals. We go there often and many other friends and coworkers agree, the food is excellent

Listening to BB-King while enjoying a pulled pork sandwich is a great combo for lunch anywhere, anytime, let alone on the edge of the Great Plains. The place is small, but the BBQ is large, especially on the taste. Gets crowded early but a steady turnover will provide for seating soon rather than not. Right off I-55 in the center... More
