Great BBQ brisket, baby back ribs in a very nice patio setting during the pandemic. The staff are very nice with great service...half service...order at counter and they bring the food to you. The sides were okay to very good. The restaurant is located in...an industrial area so during the week it can get very busy with the local workers enjoying their lunch their and we don't have to drive to Phil's BBQ in the San Diego area to get really good BBQ.More

I am NOT A FORMER EMPLOYEE of this restaurant, nor have I ever had a business relationship with the owner in this or any other venture of his. This review is strictly the honest opinion of a person who was a customer of this location....I say this because the owner reported my previous negative review (and screen capture of his rude and insulting email to me about the review itself) to Yelp and stated I was a disgruntled and fired former employee and had a personal business relationship with him, thereby making any review by me a violation of Yelp rules. So...I'm reposting my review....Not just here but now on Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and any other review platform I can find. I am not and never was his employee. Lying to yelp to remove a review shows how low he would go. I'd hope that before yelp does that again, they get seek comment from both sides before taking any action. Keep in mind these deceitful and untrustworthy actions when you decided on your next choice of restaurants to visit. Now....on with the review..... I've known of this place for a few years but never eaten here. Decided to finally give them a try this past week. Sadly I found the experience disappointing. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich with their baked beans and a side of fries. About a 3rd of the pork I got was hard as a brick. I found their BBQ sauce to be quite good, but sadly the meat was quite dry. I expected moist and juicy meat. The fries had seasoning that I really disliked a lot so they went straight into the garbage. The beans were good, but really nothing special. I visit Knott's (when we're not on social distancing) quite often and get their pulled pork from their Boardwalk BBQ restaurant. The pulled pork from Knott's is really good. I was expecting Blake's to be even better, especially considering the price. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. I am a retired person who likes to get out and about. Our part of SoCal has not just local residents but visitors to our great amusement areas as well. I frequently am asked and will offer up recommendations for good places to shop and eat. I will not be able to recommend Blake's based on my experience. Sorry, but it's a no from me.More

With the shelter in place order it’s difficult to find good food for take out, but Blake’s is really good bar b q! We got the full rack of ribs, shredded brisket and pulled pork along with a side of cole slaw and baked beans....Plenty of food for two nights. Everything was delicious! It’s a very clean and sanitary place.More

Twenty two for dinner on a Sunday afternoon, 5 PM. Not everyone who was at the service yesterday attended this afternoon. But to those who did, it was a more relaxed meeting of seldom seen cousins. Our first time dining here, although friends from my...working days past had good things to say and come here often. This is a meat forward establishment. We watched as those who had ordered before us, had their food brought to the table. “The Beast” was seen a couple of times, a giant of a sandwich, so goes the name. She ordered a beef brisket sandwich, the person taking our order never asked how we wanted it cut, so just large pieces of meat came between the two pieces of bread. I ordered onion rings, these are really very good, and of a large number per order. A Pastrami, with mustard, and a pickle slice. I usually like mine with mayonnaise and lettuce and tomato, and lots of pickles. Could not really get it here in that configuration. I did ask. One beer and one coke. The bill being paid by a generous gift. We could not complain.More

BBQ in California? Well if you are from the Midwest or the South, you won’t be blown away by this food but it is close enough to the real deal in a pinch. The owner is really nice and was working hard to ensure that...all customers were satisfied. The coke dispenser stopped working during my visit a so the wait staff didn’t miss a beat and started handing out canned sodas to its guests. That quick reaction and solution to the problem is how it should be. Overall, I enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Lots of seating too. Great for big groups at the lastt minute.More

I tried to Gluten Free pizza and the Cauliflower crusted pizza and was totally blown away at how good the cauliflower crusted pizza was. I highly recommend eating here.

I went there for lunch and had the 2 meat combo (Ribs and Brisket). It came with beans and coleslaw. There were only 2 ribs and it is not fall off the bone type,the brisket was very tender and had a good favor. The beans...were ok and the coleslaw was dry. I thought it was on the expense side for the size portions we got. You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table.More

Blake’s is a little out of the way but it is near two freeways. Easy to stop at. Great pulled pork. The baked beans were not special but they were good. Coleslaw good also. They have a fabulous menu
