Great BBQ

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

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.
