We arrived and had a 20 min wait. Its a small restaurant, and very popular too. So we didnt baulk at the wait time. The hostess was keen to have us sit round the bar and wait. We could watch the team in the kitchen and relax to the amazing BBQ aromas. Food - We had to go for various... More

This was my first real experience of American BBQ, this place was amazing, I honestly can't describe how much I loved it, from the atmosphere of the restaurant to the very friendly staff (tyruss was just super lovely. The food was amazing (those flavours really just burst and the meat just melts off the bone) and such a great price... More

I wanted to try the restaurant after being featured on several Travel/Food shows. Coming from the South, I was impressed with the flavor of the Barbecue. I now try to stop by there any time I find myself flying into Los Angeles. They describe their style as "hybrid" which would be an accurate description for the food and the atmosphere.... More

Amazing authentic barbecue with both Texas and Memphis style ribs, wings, beef sausage, pulled pork and smoked chicken. Lives up to all awards and reputation!

We were looking for something else and stumbled across this place. We were very pleasantly surprised. Fall off the bone ribs and tasty pulled pork. No complaints here.

They work at a frenetic pace to get orders out as quickly as possible. Pork ribs could not have been better - great LA Westside barbecue. We will be back to try more of their menu!

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.

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
Venice
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.
