Baby Blue’s BBQ
The history of Baby Blue’s BBQ is as simple and satisfying as a Southern summer afternoon spent on a wrap-around porch with a cold glass of sweet tea in hand.
After moving to Los Angeles, two friends decided that they’d had enough of LA cuisine and began laying the groundwork for what would eventually become Baby Blue’s.
As an amalgamation of their BBQ dreams and family recipes, this restaurant offers one simple thing: tried and true barbecue classics that’ve been tested by the pickiest eaters.
Now, for the main event: the barbecue. Here, the only tough decision you’ll have to make is which item on their huge menu speaks to your BBQ-loving soul most. To get your imagination going, let’s consider a few of their most popular options.
For a starter, order up the Tackle Box, which combines the best of all this dive’s appetizers: two grilled tiger shrimp, two hush puppies, two fried green tomatoes, and four wings. Then, get to grubbing by selecting the Blue Devil Combo as your entrée.
This is the perfect option for those of us who have a little trouble making up our minds. With your choice of four different types of meat, such as ribs, smoked chicken, brisket, pulled pork, and more, you can let your imagination roam free. Plus, all that comes with three fixins’ and homemade cornbread.
