I recently took a friend to lunch at Blues Barbecue in the Billings Heights. Blues is located inside a Cenex gas station and has been the "go to" BBQ restaurant for several years now. It serves the best BBQ in Billings, in my opinion. Blues serves their ribs dry and leave it up to the customer to add the sauce.... More

I travel a lot and eat out a lot. Finding Blue's BBQ here in my backyard was a nice surprise. I thought the food was very good, and the value was great! Don't be afraid to visit if you're hankering for some good BBQ.

My husband and I have been to a LOT of BBQ's and since we are moving to Billings our first order of business was checking out the local BBQ. As far as we can tell, this is THE place for people to go for BBQ around here. If you go, here's what you need to know: -Located in a gas... More

This place offers real smoked meat. Smokers right out back. The prices are awesome! Food is great! Staff is friendly. Atmosphere is very casual- fast food like. You wait in line to order and you receive your food at the counter. There seems to be only one menu to be shared with everyone. Limited seating. Despite the things that may... More

Best BBQ brisket I've ever had! Really glad I checked this place out. The place is nothing fancy, but the service is friendly, the atmosphere is warm, and the food is great. Don't pass this place up just because it's in a gas station; you won't be disappointed.

Lots of good choices for BBQ. Ribs were very good as was the brisket. The sides were very good with their house pasta a unique dish. The coleslaw and baked beans were also very good. Owner is there and interested in what's going on.

Huge fan of Blues. Always fantastic BBQ. The brisket is some of the best brisket I have ever had. The Ranch Pasta salad is also fantastic. Its not the coolest looking place in town, but the food makes up for it. Family owned and operated I believe. That or they have an extremely low turnover rate. Either way...awesome food and... More

I went here to order takeout. I ordered ribs and brisquet, and the service was prompt. The food was excellent. This is real BBQ, something that nobody else has in Billings. The only issue would be the atmosphere...this isn't a restaurant, its a gas station, and it isn't necessarily a destination restaurant. I will definitely go back, as the food... More

I eat at Blues as much as possible... They have the best BBQ in Billings, hands down. Great prices, as well. The lunch special always hits the spot, and the ranch pasta salad is AWESOME!
