I and four of my friends went to Baby Blues in Philadelphia for the first time last week. My friends and I are all young professionals but that does not mean that we don’t try to save money when we can, so the fact that I could get almost anything on the menu at a reasonable price excited me and my friend to no end. We became even more excited when the food came, and the portions were extremely generous. I and my friends felt like we definitely got a bang for our buck. I got the baby back ribs and I must say they were amazing. My friends all had different things on the menu, but all raved about their food as well. Surprising no one had any complains, which is rare in my group of friends because they are very picky eaters. One thing that we all had with our meal that we could not get enough of was the mac and cheese, the mac and cheese is to die for! If you go in, you must try it, it is amazing! After dinner we decided to stay and drink at the bar for a little while because we were having such a good time and we were pleased to find that the staff could not have been nicer and our bartenders knew every type of drink and shot that we asked for (which is not common now days at bars). We all left Baby Blues with smiles on our faces and very full stomachs. We will definitely be back!

I came to Baby Blues on the impression it was the best BBQ in town. It was alright. The food was pretty good, not as authentic as I thought it would be. My problem was the cleanliness of the place. There were crumbs all over my seat, my table had dried sauce all over it, and my silverware was dirty. The food was pretty good, had the shrimp which was fantastic and the mac and cheese, but there was something off about the mashed potatoes (are they supposed to be soupy??)

I have visited this place many times now and I keep going back to it because I really enjoy the food and atmosphere. Sometimes to have a quick dinner at the bar or have a dinner in the restaurant area. Both options are great. The baby back ribs, gargano texas rib and Lasker burger are great choices. The Mac n Cheese is terrific. Besides the good food what really draws me back to this place is the personal and enthusiasmic approach by the people working at BBblues BBQ including Steve and John (owners) Joe (bartender), Ann and Allison (waitresses) Don't forget to ask for the beer specials and check out the awesome bison head in the restaurant area!

OMG I love this restaurant! I’ve work in the university area for over 30 years and have tried every restaurant. This has now become my #1 favorite spot when deciding where to go for lunch. The pulled pork sandwich is awesome and the mac n cheese is to die-for. Even the cole-slaw is dynamite. I've recommended this restaurant to several of my friends & co-workers and everyone that goes there comes back raving about it. The atmosphere is comfortable, the staff is very friendly and the food is umm-umm good! So if you’re looking for excellent food you must try Baby Blues BBQ. I guarantee, you will not be disappointed.

Fell in love with this place first time I had lunch there.. then met the owner, Steve, friendliest guy you ever met. Food is consistently great, best cole slaw I ever had, ribs to die for. Wait until you try the cornbread!
