Rib aye!

This ;place is adjacent to a gas station and has no ambiance. Forks and plates are plastic and it is just a place to get some honest-to-goodness Texas style BBQ. You can spell the aroma for about a half mile because of the smokers in the rear churning out great BBQ. It is small, it isn't a place... read more

Yummy brisket for me. usually just by the brisket by the pound and take it home to enjoy for dinner. It helps that you can call it in ahead of time and then drive thru and pick it up.

Blue's BBQ is amazing. Don't let the location fool you (inside a gas station). The Barbecue is some of the best I've ever had. The employees are great and very friendly. The value is amazing too. An absolute gem in Billings!

If you want good BBQ go to one of the other places in town. If you want awesome bbq, come here. Ribs, brisket, turkey, and the sweet potatoes are my favorite. Good hot links, beans and potato salad. There is usually a line, but they move pretty fast. I think the longest I've ever had to wait was maybe 10... More

Blues BBQ, while this All American BBQ joint looks like a quickly put together hut, it is by far the best food I have ever eaten. Simple as that!

Don't let the building deceive you. Yes it is attached to a gas station but it is well worth what ever drive it takes to get to this place. This is by far the best BBQ you will ever eat, yes the BEST!! As you bite into the ribs you will feel like you were sitting next to the smoker... More

We lived in Georgia for over 13 years. During that time I ate at some great BBQ places. Blues BBQ in Billings Heights is as good as it gets. All oh their food is fantastic but for a great change of pace try their smokes turkey sandwich. You'll love it.

I was craving bbq but this didn't do it for me. I called in my order and went to pick it up. There was 3 employees there all BSing with the customer in front of me. It took several minutes before anyone bothered to acknowledge me. Upon trying the food, the pulled pork was nice but in a greasy sauce... More
