    On a date? Big Blue for two is just right. Wash down with multiple Shiners. Follow with multiple Tums. Life is good.

    Try the XXX sauce and get ready for the "ring of fire." The best lunch deals are on the back of the menu. $3 all you can drink sweet tea.

    The banana pudding is tremendous. It's not pudding on any airs.

    Google maps location is incorrect. Use the one on 4sq

    Great mac and cheese and beef brisket. There is also one in LA that has awesome appetizers

    We love the famous "hybrid" style of Baby Blues - Memphis-style ribs with a sauce that hails from North Carolina. Plus it's even better when enjoyed with a Trumer!

    Cycling cred, big meat and a what's-not-to-like wine list in one.

    Leopard-woman is not a Leopard, but rather a Cheetah. In fact, her name is Cheetarah. This tip will make sense once she's your server; I promise.

    Not Kansas City BBQ. Very Southern. Low smoke. You get to choose your sauces. Good spare ribs. Good greens. Potato salad was bland. Good sauces

    The platters are massive. Service is friendly.

    Beef brisket with homemade jalapeño vinegar is insane. Wash it down with an ice cold Shiner Bock!

    Stick to the meats at this down home BBQ spot, located at the base of Bernal Heights. Ribs, brisket and chicken are especially good. Read more

    Can't decide on ribs,brisket? Get The Three Kings 1/3 Rack Memphis Ribs, Beef Brisket & 1/4 Free Range Chicken. It's a delicious way to make the choice easier.

    This place has some of the service staff in SF! The food is actually as good as food from the south unlike other BBQ places in town.

    One of the best BBQ places I've been too! If you're looking to eat a lot of meat AKA gain mass AKA get HUGE - I highly recommend this place for post-workout.

    Baby back ribs & beef brisket. Tasty, but a bit dry. Go for the house BBQ sauce & the bbq shrimp.

    The platinum blonde waitress/bartender is really sweet! Friendly, unpretentious service here.

  • E W.

    Ribs, cornbread, and mac/cheese (good cheeses, if watery) fantastic. Brisket only ok. Great sauces (had all including the xxx) reasonably hot with good flavor. Portobello sandwich bit disappointing.

    E Wee · October 28, 2012
  • Korin S.

    The twosome is the best. With a side Caesar. Yum.

    Korin Sanchez · October 19, 2012

    Ribs. Try all the sauces and lick your fingers. Get cornbread and smashed potatoes on the side. Wash down with beer

    Ribs were not at all fall off the bone. Mac n cheese was waaaay overcooked and the cheese sauce was broken. Yuck. We threw away most of our food. The best part of our $40 meal was the fast delivery...
