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

They got the market cornered. Try them one time for that picnic feel and you will wish you could picnic everyday. ..... Shoot, why not? We have been a Blues fan since Blues was back in Sheridan, Wyoming and after all these years we truly still theory enjoy them and count Blues one of the best if not The Best!!!... More

Blues is located in of all places a gas station building. DON'T LET THAT FOOL YOU!!!! This is legit smoked meats and good sides. Nothing comes close in this area and believe me, I've been to them all. Also, what I mean by all, I have been to Authur Bryants, Jack Stacks, etc... during my travels, so I do have... More
