Hot on the heels of the successful opening of its Echo Park location, Baby Blues BBQ has opened its eagerly anticipated fifth location. Army veterans and long term friends Mama Lion’s Robert Kim and Baby Blues BBQ’s very own Rick McCarthy have joined forces to bring the BBQ you know and love to Western Avenue in the heart of Los Angeles’ burgeoning Koreatown

Rapidly emerging as one of Los Angeles’ hottest and most diverse neighbourhoods, Koreatown has become one of the City’s premiere cultural destinations for dining, entertainment and nightlife, and was an obvious choice for Baby Blues BBQ’s latest expansion.

This location at 607 S. Western Avenue, Los Angeles, CA, is a collaboration between Baby Blues BBQ and the owners of Mama Lion, Koreatown’s acclaimed bar and lounge located at the adjacent property. Building on Mama Lion’s success of bringing a mainstream concept to Koreatown, Baby Blues BBQ has partnered with Mama Lion’s team to bring a traditional and authentic southern-style BBQ concept accessible to those that live, work and play in Koreatown.


Currently offering delivery, take out, and catering options ONLY, with the anticipated opening of a full-service dine-in restaurant concept at the end of the summer of 2019, the Baby Blues BBQ Koreatown menu features the same hugely popular dishes that put the brand on the culinary map.
