I got the shrimp sandwich and a few sides. Each item tasted great and the bbq sauce was on point. They can get busy since they offer quality food so squeeze in early before the lunch crowds on the weekends.

Do you ever watch those travel cooking shows and wonder if they are as good in person as they appear on TV? Baby Blue BBQ lives up to what I saw on Diners, Drive-ins and Dive's. I went because of the beef rib I saw on the show. I wasn't disappointed. It was as big as it appeared on the... More

I love BBQ. I love to cook it and eat at great old style BBQ joints. Trust me when I say you need to order the beef rib. It is expensive, but we took half of it home. There sides are all amazing as well.

Went to this place for lunch three times now. Food and service has been consistently good. Lincoln Blvd. is a busy street, but there is free parking allowed in the lot right across from the restaurant. The menu has a great selection of southern comfort food. I had the pulled pork and smoked chicken plates with collard greens and corn... More

My first American BBQ experience and I enjoyed every bite. Good portions and super tender meat. Only thing I'm not sold on in Collard Greens, but that might just be me!

I have been reading about how good their BBQ is. I have eaten BBQ all over the south and was extremely disappointed in this place. I had their pulled pork sandwich and there was no flavor, the meat was bland, no smoke, no spice and the coleslaw was no better. Even after drowning it in BBQ sauce it was sad.... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
