“Blake’s Place has Texas pit-smoked BBQ with California flavor in Anaheim, CA”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

The Pulled Pork is exactly what it sounds like. It’s tender, slow-cooked, smoked pork that literally falls apart into shreds. They toss it in Blake’s BBQ sauce and serve it up in a lump. It has a little too much BBQ sauce for me. I’m more of a smoked meat person who uses the sauce on the side to add as needed. Otherwise, the pork tasted pretty good. Thumbs up!

Blake’s Big Pulled Pork Pile is slow smoked pork, pulled and served on their big bun with BBQ sauce, cole slaw, and red onion. You’ll definitely need extra napkins for this sandwich! Again, a little too much BBQ sauce for me, but my family loved this sandwich! The sweet, BBQ sauced smoky pork complemented the cool, creamy cole slaw. The bun was soft yet held this pork beast together. Thumbs up! If you’re feeling a bit of Man vs. Food hunger, they also offer the Blake’s One Pounder Bomber or “THE BEAST” (two and a half pounds of food, YIKES!)

Sandy’s Bread Pudding is a huge portion with a side of vanilla sauce to slather on. It was a very dense and custardy bread pudding. It had a bit more raisins in it than expected. The vanilla sauce was creamy and gave it a down-home comfy goodness. Thumbs up!

“Out-of-the-way surprise BBQ!”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

Blake's Place is a family owned and run BBQ restaurant located in the middle of an area of light industry establishments. If you blink...sneeze... or look the wrong way you'd pass it.

Please take the time to drop in and try the eat-in or take-out offerings. My family chooses to always eat in as there are large screen television monitors to watch the local sports action.

We have not found anything on the menu to "reject." Try the combination plate and do not overlook the corn-on-the-cobb!

Take a look at the other comments and I also raise my glass/cup with two thumbs up!

Best BBQ food. Although the prices are a little pricey, the food is excellent and worth the money.

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed 7 September 2010

Tasty! Their BBQ Sauce is the bomb! Not the romantic type of place, kind of hidden, but their food is worth it.

Reviewed 8 September 2009

Blake's Place has an excellent menu selection and you get a large amount for the price. I had my pulled chicken sandwich for 3 separate meals!

Plus the owners and the staff are really nice, because they will take special orders.
