Baby Blues BBQ (Venice) good for lunch??

Hi All,

Is Baby Blues a good option for lunch (weekday or weekend)? I especially love ribs with the smoky flavor.

What are their best mains and SIDES?

  1. it's great for lunch. usually not too crowded. i love their baby back ribs, their burger and pulled pork sandwich. best sides are sweet mash. mac & cheese and corn on the cob. make sure you end with the banana pudding.

      i don't eat meat, so just fast forward and go straight to the banana pudding- it is the best stuff!

        Thanks, woofer, local & snoopy. I'm starving just from reading your responses!!

      2. My favorite bbq place hands down!

        I really like their sweet mash, mac&cheese and greens for the sides. My favorite dishes are the pulled port and Memphis style ribs with their homemade super spicy "xxx" sauce. :)

          mint: What's the difference in taste between the plain ole baby back ribs and the Memphis style ribs?

        2. all the sides are pretty good. a warning though, i recently had the lasker burger and it really changed from about a year ago. i prefered it before. it has this very sweet lingonberry sauce, so if you dont want an overly sweet sauce on your burger, ask for it without or on the side...

            Thanks, modernist. Though I'm pretty sure I'll go straight for the ribs!!

          2. Their mac and cheese is really good but my all time favorite was their corn bread. :)
