Came here for dinner after a business meeting. I ordered the brisket, the blues corn and sweet potato fries (at the recommendation of the waitress). The food was excellent and the service was equally as good. I would recommend this place to anyone.

I did enjoy my pulled pork sandwich in this place. I had a seat in the bar, and while thinking about what I was going to order, I was quite impressed on how competent the two guys in the open kitchen are. The atmosphere is great to watch sports or talk with friends and the food is tasty. They should... More

One of our group was desperate to try authentic bbq ribs, this place was recommended by a friend of mine and it didn't disappoint. For me the ribs were excellent but the chicken was superb all complimented by the delicious sauces.

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
