Baby Blue's BBQ

We saw this BB Q restaurant on the food netwoek called Baby Blues in Venice, CA. It looked really good. Anyone ever been? My brother is driving down there with a friend to check it out!

  1. It's great. My wife & I went ther after seeing it on the Food Network and we are really happy we did. The ribs are great but what really linger sin my memory is an amazing banana pudding.

    1. I first went to Baby Blues very shortly after its opening and I like it. I think they do a fine pulled pork; their brisket is served in the same kinda stringy style rather than sliced, which isn't my preference. I wouldn't really call it upscale, but it is a pleasant restaurant with a large counter and two rooms of tables with good service from friendly Venice often tattooed and pierced servers. Prices a touch on the high side, but I always emerge happy and wellfed. My current BBQ favorite is Porky's, but Baby Blues ranks well up there, and it is miles better than Outdoor on Washington, the former Benny's nearby the other side of Lincoln, or Mr. Cecil's, the others in the general area. Strong thumbs up!

      1. FYI, here's some menu info on Baby Blue's. Haven't been as yet but if I'm ever in the neighborhood . . .
