Baby Blue Barbeque

Neta | Jul 1, 2011 07:58 PM

After watching a DDD with Guy Fieri where he visited Baby Blue in Venice, we decided to make the trip on a Saturday in horrendous traffic on the W/B 10. Took a couple of friends with us. It was the worse meal we have had in the longest time. On the program, it looked inviting. One of the customers announced that he cried if they ran out of the mac n" cheese by the time he got there. I cried because they did have this mish/mash dish that was called mac n' cheese but there was no resemblance. It was an overcooked mess with curdled cheese throughout. They advertised baked beans as a side and all that was was some kidney beans and I guess pinto beans thrown together with no baked bean seasonings. Horrible. The pulled pork sandwich was one that any of us could make at home but better. It had some tasteless cole slaw on it which didn't add a thing to the flavor. The baby backs were dry and not all that. Our friend had the cat fish Po Boy and he actually liked it but he's like Mikey, he'll eat anything. I ordered kool aid since it's been years and years since I've had this drink and dissapointingly found out it was nothing more than canned Hawaiian Punch, no KA taste to it at all. The bill came to $70 without tip and that hurt the most. Our friend paid and i felt so guilty for even suggesting this place not knowing it was so awful. Just wanted to vent a little. Apparently there are people who like it because it was about 2:30 in the afternoon and the place was very busy, not packed but a nice size crowd
