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

Love this place! Best Sauce! Great pulled pork/chicken and amazing fresh french fries! Small little place with big food. I'm picky about sauce and theirs has the perfect combo of sweet and tangy that I love. highly recommend it!

I have traveled a lot and have been to many that claim to be the best. But Baby Back Blues is definitely the best I have tried for beef brisket and pulled pork. Their ribs are fall off the bone excellent. Its all good cooked on wood!

This restaurant features pulled pork, brisket, chicken, either plain or with the mac and cheese and vegetable sides. I stop by here for lunch when in the area and most always take an extra sandwich home for my husband. I've never been disappointed by the robust flavor and serving size of these meats or their personal bbq sauce!!

Always heard about Baby Back Blues. Wanted to try it and finally the opportunity happened. It didn't disappoint. Some of the best ribs I've had. Meat fell off the bones. Excellent taste, they did it right slow roasting. If you like ribs this is the place. Portion size was generous. Almost double what have gotten in other places that were... More

I never pass up the Mac and cheese, our six year old could live on their fries, and my husband would make... More

Best pulled pork sandwich ever......& it is piled on high! Several bbq sauces to choose from. Marinated cucumbers are my favorite side, too! Can't go wrong with a trip to Baby Back Blues!
