The place is not fancy, but the food is awesome! There is also a drive up window for take out. It is a family operation. The staff is very personable and the service is excellent. Prices are very reasonable.

Best BBQ in Billings.and reasonable pricing. I would eat there every day i am in the 'Billings MT Heights". AND a reasonably priced gas station with a well stocked store.

I'm sorry to say that Blue's BBQ is not as good as it was when I went here 3 years ago. While the atmosphere was still cozy and the staff were still friendly, the food has gone downhill. I ordered a combo dinner of smoked turkey and brisket with a side salad and baked beans. The brisket did not have... More

Funky place located in Billings Heights. Brisket and ribs are as good as any I've had and I have been all over the country!

We usually visit Billings over a weekend once a year. We without fail will end up at Blues BBQ. Why would I eat anywhere else? We get it to go, take it back to our room and have a family dinner. The last time we were here, we took a couple bags full back to our hotel. I left the... More

BBQ in Montana? Well that is what I thought but my husband loves BBQ so I agreed to drive by. That's when you see the gas station entrance although they do have a drive-thru. Went in and found a very busy but well staffed restaurant.The food was very good. I had the brisket sandwich with a green salad as the... More

I was not aware of its location and it threw me off a little bit after ordering just accepted it. The staff is very friendly and the food is good. We had several different types of food ordered in my party and we all enjoyed it. Good for BBQ on the go or eating in.

Okay I have been all over and seeing a BBQ joint in a gas station is nothing new to me. Some of the best BBQ I have had is from down south on a road trip for work. Stopping for fuel and getting a surprise of great BBQ. That being said this was fair at best. I ordered a pound... More
