Decent BBQ 11/10/2011

He has two prices out there one where the 2-meats is $7.50 and the other is $10.50. I had a Groupon for $10 and he wanted $3.50 more. I explained, I have seen the other site and he waived the $3.50. His prices have gone up recently. The food is good, but the prices are a bit too high for my other choices. Thanks! more

Stick to the good stuff 9/20/2011

I've eaten here occasionally over the last year and a half. I have had there burgers and bbq. The different meats are all good except for the brisket and ribs. I found the ribs weren't very tender and the brisket was tough, rubbery, and fatty. The turkey, links, ham, and chopped beef are all delicious. The potato salad was average, and the beans were tough and bland. I've had the beans a couple of times and this was always the case. The fries vary. Some are perfectly cooked and others are not quite cooked enough. I usually deem about half of the fries not worthy to eat. It must have something to do with the thickness of the cut and/or their location in the fryer. The burgers are where its at. If you are going to go out of your way to come here than it is going to be for the burgers. The time of your visit is key. During rush hours they sometimes precook patties. I've had burgers here that are dry and tough, and I've had some that are the juiciest most delicious burger I've eaten in months. Try to go when they are not busy to ensure your burger is cooked fresh. If you must go during the rush, be sure to request that your patties are cooked fresh. You won't piss off the cook. A man who cooks burgers for a living will respect people who don't settle for sub-par burgers. Let the people who come in after you get their food first, I promise you it will be worth it. If you get your food faster than 15-20 minutes, then be prepared to send back an old dry burger. As for everything else on their menu, I haven't had it so I cannot comment. more

Awful 3/26/2010

Customer service was HORRIBLE. We had eight in our group so we told them we were together - Wrong! Why they wanted to know is beyond me. We all waited over 45 mins. to get our food. When we did, some plates came out wrong, without fries. We finally went in and wanted to see the manager, but they sent his daughter out. She made excuses about why it was taking so long, i.e. the grilled chicken, short handed, etc.. It was so thin, you'd think it only needed a few minutes to cook. Didn't acknowledge the situation at all. Other customers that day complained as well. Some in our group got their money back but one didn't get her food at all! Needless to say, i will never return to this place. My chicken sandwich was bland and used cheap chopped lettuce. Pros: Sunny Day Cons: Very disorganized more

YUM!!!!! 11/16/2009

I'd been hearing so much about this place and how great their burgers were so I decided to head to Blake?s with a friend. We ended up not being in a burger mood so I ordered the catfish plate and she ordered the sausage and rib plate....then we shared. Oh.......MY......GOODNESS!!! The Catfish was some of the crispiest and flavorful fish I've had in a long time! My mouth is watering thinking about it! The sausage is so good, you won't even need to put any BBQ sauce on it, and the ribs are smoked just right and fall off the bone. Just to make sure I gave the burgers a fair try, I went back there over the weekend. I got the cheeseburger with onions, jalapenos, bacon, and pepper jack cheese.....YUM! It was seasoned very well and was cooked to perfection. I have to say though; while their burgers are divine......I don't know why they aren't well known for the catfish! I plan on having them cater our next office meeting. I can't wait! Pros: Fabulous BBQ, Burgers, and don't forget the CATFISH!!! Cons: Sides aren't that great. more

Good food! 2/12/2009

Great burgers and fries but WOW the fried catfish is great and so are the green beans!!! My husband and I eat at Blake's at least once a week for lunch. I recommend this place to friends and family. Everyone who has tried it loves it. Pros: Great food, fast, friendly service. Cons: You have to get back in line if you want a drink re-fill or extra napkins. more

MMmmmm Good! 10/18/2007

Picked up a pound of smoked turkey, potato salad and beans to bring home and avoid having to cook. WOW we loved the smoked turkey and I can hardly wait to try Blake's famous burgers. They also have the best Thanksgiving dinner meals ready to go. Pros: The BEST BBQ! Delivery anywhere more

Love the Food....Hate the extra charge for no reason. 8/8/2006

I love the BBQ here, this family smokes it to perfection. He has a great technique for cooking his meat. I would give this place a straight 10 except: Pros: Amazing BBQ and meat flavored just right. Cons: They put an extra charge on you ticket and hope you don't notice. more

Excellent Burgers, Onion Rings and Ribs 6/25/2006

I saw an employee of a retail tire shop eating a delicious-looking burger so I asked where he got it and he said Blake's on Jeanetta, so I went. Everything is delicious, but especially the burgers. The staff is very friendly. They even have homemade desserts like Sock It To Me cake, which tasted just like my mom's! Pros: 3 dinners are less than $20 more

My new favorite BBQ place! 12/26/2003

Blake's has great BBQ, potatoes and burgers, freshly cooked and served exactly like you want them. The brisket is so flavorful it never occured to me to pour sauce over it! The service is extremely friendly; they make you feel like part of the family. The prices are great and there is plenty of space to dine. There is a room in back where parties and meetings can be held and the staff is very accomodating. Extra parking is available behind the restaurant. Highly recommended! Pros: Inexpensive, Wonderful food, Excellent service more

Can't go wrong with a burger from Blake' 7/18/2003

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. Fries are good too if you can find room for them. more

Best Burger in Town 8/20/2002

BBQ is good, but the burgers are superb--well worth the trip from Meadows Place to Westheimer/Jeanetta. Setting is relaxing; atmosphere is inviting; burgers are a treat! more
