We were there two times, very nice place to eat and/or drink something after work. Staff is friendly, specially Sara and the tattoo guy who teach us how to eat ribs combining BBQ sauce and hot chilli sauce. Totally recommend.

First time here in this section of Philly. I saw the sign for BBQ and ignoring the fact that I had formal dinner plans, I went solo to try out Baby Blues. So glad I did. I had the KC ribs, beans and smoked rice....rice was a bit dry, beans were great. The ribs were meaty, moisty and perfect consistency.... More

I was hungry for bbq and this place knocked it out of the ballpark. Everything was terrific. I had the pulled pork platter. The pork was generous and delish. The grilled veggies looked disgusting and tasted so good I wanted to have more of them. The corn bread was the best I've ever had in a restaurant. Dare I guess... More

I really wanted to like this place! Two of us arrived early and sat at the bar to kill some time. I ordered mojitos, which were simply outstanding. I texted the rest of the party “This place rocks!”. They arrive and we were seated in a comfortable table towards the back of the establishment. The food, unfortunately, was not up... More

Had a great lunch with the family, but some of the items such as the Brunswick stew were overyly spicy. We had hush puppies and fried green tomatoes for an appetizer. The hush puppies wer over cooked and the fried green tomatoes were cut too thick. The beef brisket was fantastic and the service was very good.

Good BBQ place. The ribs were delicious. There's really nothing to complain about. Over all, it was a very good experience.

We dined at Baby Blues on our last night in University City. All of the restaurants along Sansom Street were great. Baby Blues was no exception. We were there during the UC Dining Days - so 2 of us enjoyed the dining days menu (appetizer, dinner, and dessert for a fixed price). I had the fried green tomatoes - they... More
