Run, Do Not Walk, to Baby Blues Ribs

December 16, 2008

Stopped by Baby Blues for their opening Saturday night. The rack of ribs was outstanding (easily feeds two). Cornbread, fixin’s, good sauce, collard greens, chicken, catfish, the whole deal, hell yeah.

The biggest surprise was the shrimp, holy crap was that good (and you can it get a la carte — want just one?  You can get just one.  Not that you will eat just one, trust me.)

And everyone who works there is cool. Plus they have wicked business cards.


On Mission and Precita, right across from Kragen and El Rio.

(UPDATE — call ahead, they’re installing a new smoker and will have an irregular schedule while the health inspectors do their thing.)

    Yo Johnny! My family loves BBQ…is someplace I can drag my old man too or is it strictly for young folks? Usually we hit Nates but this sounds good and the playing cards are way cool.

    It’s not too hipster. A little loud but not too bad. It’s in La Lengua after all. :)

    Call ahead though — they are installing a 2nd smoker and have to jump through some health inspection hoops and might be closed a couple of nights (like tonight).

    Hey, this is a chain from Venice.

    It’s their second shop, there’s some sort of family connection (I want to say the owner’s brother works down there, not positive). Definitely guys from the Venice shop up helping get them set up.

    Allright. Ok. Actually, we tried to go tonight and they were closed. I was all amped for it too. :(

    Yeah, the same happened to me the week before christmas. As far as I can tell they are still in soft-opening phase, rough around the edges. I think the SFgate and Eater references overwhelmed them somewhat.
