They got the market cornered. Try them one time for that picnic feel and you will wish you could picnic everyday. ..... Shoot, why not? We have been a Blues fan since Blues was back in Sheridan, Wyoming and after all these years we truly still theory enjoy them and count Blues one of the best if not The Best!!!... More

Food is consistently good. My favorite is the sausage and turkey. I have ordered BBQ for numerous parties/events. Never been disappointed.

Blues is located in of all places a gas station building. DON'T LET THAT FOOL YOU!!!! This is legit smoked meats and good sides. Nothing comes close in this area and believe me, I've been to them all. Also, what I mean by all, I have been to Authur Bryants, Jack Stacks, etc... during my travels, so I do have... More

First off this is located in a gas station. Best gas station food you'll ever have. I have had the brisket sandwich several times very good have not tried the ribs but a friend of mine told me about the place said they're great. I believe there sides are all homemade. The people here are very nice. Food portions are... More

Blues BBQ is an out of the way place tucked inside a Gas station convenience store. When you walk in your senses are awakened by the aroma of the various BBQ selections. They offer Brisket, Ribs, Chicken, Sausage (two types Spicy and Mild) and pork. Sides include a great macaroni salad,, baked beans, potatoes (regular and sweet0 and potato salad.... More

Have not had anything yet I didn't like. The smoke is not too heavy, but gives everything a really good taste. The family pack meals give you a lot of food and choices for the price.

I blame myself. I should have done more research into the location of this place. It is attached to a gas station and is ok. While flavor was ok, the beans tasted right out of the can, I did not find the sauce that good either.

Blues is one of the best if not the Best in Billings for BBQ. They moved from Sheridan Wyoming and are missed. We drive over 247 miles round trip for their fall off the bone ribs,sausage and assume sides. Blues is like a picnic setting with disposable plates and silverware and is sharing a side of a gas-convenience store. They... More

Picked up a rack of ribs, cole slaw, potato salad, and beans to take home. The service was quick and the staff courteous. The ribs are flavorful and smokey. We got some regular, and "hot" bbq sauce on the side. I didn't think the hot sauce was really that spicy. It's good, but a little on the sweet side for... More
