You know a place has good BBQ when the napkins are a roll of paper towels and the tables are made of metal. My SO and I split a combo platter: half a rack of ribs, pulled pork, a side for each of us and...More

Our waiter, Will, took excellent care of us. The restaurant has a lunch menu available until 4:00, which has a large selection of reasonably priced items. The macaroni and cheese is out of this world. Good beer selection, laid back atmosphere. Walking distance from CHOP...More

Nothing bad or great about this place. Atmosphere is eclectic and service is good. Food is tasty but nothing special. Still good place to go for a fast meal near U Penn

We got Baby Blues through Grub Hub while in Philly for delivery to our hotel after reading such good reviews. The pulled pork seemed to be the logical choice and we are glad we got it! It was awesome, tender, and juicy just as described....More
