Situated inside a gas station, this restaurant appears to have a large, local clientele. We were there on a Friday around 5:30 in the afternoon, and the tables were full while the drive-through was doing a brisk business. $30 purchased a large rib and brisket platter, with sides of potato salad and baked beans, and a large ham and turkey platter with yam and coleslaw for the sides. Two non-refillable coke products rounded out the order. All 4 sides were excellent, but the beans and yam would be our top choices. The 4 meats all had minimal seasoning. The ham and turkey were moist and tender, but lacked smoke. The baby backs had great flavor, but did not separate cleanly at the bite = needed more time in the smoker. We requested fatty brisket, and got lean. As expected at this time of the day, the meat was a bit dry, and lacking in flavor until doused in the house hot sauce (the mild is quite sweet). All in all, we can recommend the ribs, the baked beans, and especially the yam, but we would pass on the brisket, turkey and ham.

I Was talking to a local resident who recommended this place for my evening meal. I was located about 6-miles away from my hotel on the East side of Billings but the gentleman I was talking to assured me that I would not be disappointed. So off I went, and I must admit that I was a little surprised when I drove up and discovered it was inside of a Gas Station. But there was a lot of cars in the parking lot and there was a long line at the drive through. Despite the crowd, the line moved quickly. I chose the Large Brisket and Meat Plate with Shredded pork, beans, and Slaw. My food was quickly served, and it was very tasty. The servings were just right and well plated. The staff was friendly and very attentive to customer service. I really enjoy the great food and would highly recommend Blue’s BBQ if you find yourself in the Billings Area.

Not a clean table to be sat at. Ended up wiping mine off with wet wipes. I ordered tri tip sandwich, my boyfriend ordered a brisket plate. When we received our orders, we discovered the meat was the same, the tri tip is being used as brisket. Big difference if you know your meats! Flavor was “ok” but it would have been nice to have some actual brisket.

We've tried this place twice. The first time the ribs and brisket were dry and tough. We thought we would give it a second try in case the first time was a fluke. No improvement. The rib meat and brisket was tough like it hadn't been given enough time cooking. We've had barbecue in Texas and Kansas City and there's no comparison. The sides we chose were not any better. Pasta salad was swimming in mayonnaise and the potato salad was soft and mushy. The so-called baked beans seemed about like a can of pork and beans with a little ham thrown in. Just don't see why this place gets the ratings it does.

We heard about this place and stopped in for lunch. It paper plates and lots of napkins. The meat was very perfectly done with just the right amount of smoke flavor. Dining area was clean and friendly. Will be going back!

I live in Kansas City so believe me I know good bbq. I want brisket with some good bark, nice smoke ring and it to be tender. You can't fake good brisket, trust me. I was surprised to find this place in Billings. It's the real deal. Great flavor and the spicy bbq sauce was also very good on the side. I liked the thicker cut to help keep it juicy. No frills bbq, just the way I like it!

I come here every time I'm in town. I'm from Oregon. I always get smoked turkey. The noodles are too ranch/mayo but hubby likes it. Beans taste good. I like the polish dog. Just double check you order every time. This time chips, a side sauce & sauerkraut was missing. Never happened before so just maybe the counter person of the day.

Very good food. Tasty and moist, the brisket hit the spot. Fast service with a steady stream of customers. Good value at $12 for brisket and 2 sides. Sweet potatoes were hot and delicious.

“Best in Billings “ was a statement made by one of the locals I talked to. I had a half rack of ribs for lunch, garden salad and a baked yam plus a Coke Zero all for $14.00. Ribs are not wood smoked, rub was nothing special and they were a tad on the dry side. Yam was great and tasty. Salad was all iceberg, a slice or two of purple cabbage and a smattering of carrot slices. Price is good but I have to rate the ribs as average compared to other ribs I’ve had around the country.

As we travel, we're always checking out bbq places. This was a great find. It's a small place attached to a gas station. The smell alone will make you want to come in as their smoker is right behind the store. I ordered the small rib plate which cane with 2 sides. I had potato salad along with a yam/sweet potato. The ribs were so tender I didn't need a knife to cut thru them. The potato salad is definitely homemade and very tasty. They have 2 different sauces..mild and hot. Both homemade and tasty. I used the hot, which really isn't very hot. My husband ordered brisket and sausage and said were both very good. He had coleslaw which is also homemade and tasty. All was extremely good and priced reasonably.

It’s housed in a modest building adjacent to a gas station but you can smell the goodness from the street. We love the ribs, turkey, and brisket. Their baked beans and ranch pasta salad are delicious, too. They know how to BBQ!
