BBQ Heaven 2515 Martin Luther King Blvd.

This place has been around since 1952 and yet I believe this is only the second time I have been here. I have gone to their store on 30th street several times and they only offer carry out. I honestly don’t recall an out-door deck on this joint before. Well it is there now. When I eat here I usually get the BBQ on a bun or the rib tips. When I was younger it would be a big slab of BBQ’d beef Bologna on bread. Well today it was a small tip. No sides just meat. As much as I enjoy side dishes I just felt like meat.

What I enjoy about tips is they are for the relaxed eater. No gnawing on a bone ; you just pop a piece in your mouth and start chewing. Stopping long enough to remove any bone or otherwise inedible part. That is why I get them already sauced. One box of tips and 2 pieces of bread was enough to sate my appetite.

I didn’t get a taste of Pat’s ribs but I can say that they were some of the best looking bones I have seen.

Big and meaty just ready to be dipped into some hot BBQ sauce. I have always liked BBQ Heaven. Growing up there was only 2 joints for BBQ in the city Zeb’s and BBQ Heaven. I have no idea what happened to Zeb’s; it just disappeared. I am glad BBQ Heaven is still around.

I hope this link helps plan your next BBQ trip

    • Yep their ribs are big. The first thing you notice about this joint is the smell. Saliva inducing nostril twitching BBQ meat smell. It acts like an appetizer.

  2. What the hell did happen to Zeb’s?!?
    Now and again, I like to get down with some ribs, mmhm. We haven’t done any on the grill in a long while. Cherry firewood, hmm…

    • Yeah what did become of Zebs and Mambo sauce. I believe they were at 38th and Keystone and were open late. You could get your Q after an evening of partying.
