Amid a charming dining room decked with odds and ends, diners happily remove their teething rings to chomp into barbequed meats, a variety of po' boys ($6–6.95), bulging burritos ($5.50–6.50), and more.

- Blake's BBQ and Burgers is a three-fer: they dispense my Ultimate Loaded Baked Potato along with my Ultimate Barbecue Desserts in a setting that gets my vote as the Ultimate Barbecue Atmosphere. – Alison Cook, Houston Chronicle
- Kinda what I think a burger out to be. Hand formed patties, fresh cut trimmings, grill-toasted bun and they will fix it ANY way you want it. – whammock, Citysearch
