Blake’s Place Cafe and Catering Opens New Location in Los Alamitos

Barbecue veteran, Blake’s Place Cafe and Catering, announces the inauguration of a second location in the city of Los Alamitos, California. The new location will offer the same top-quality barbecue and personalized customer service offered since the start of the business back in 1996.

Blake’s Place BBQ Cafe and Catering, a BBQ business that specializes in pit-smoked barbecue including beef brisket, baby back and pork spare ribs, chicken, turkey, pork and salmon, also offers salads, deli sandwiches, soups and home-made desserts in its menu. The new location will continue to offer THE BEAST challenge, a popular super-sized sandwich-eating contest started three years ago by the owners of the company.

“After 16 successful years in Anaheim serving ‘Real Barbecue at its Best’ in our cafe and on catered events, it was time to expand into another market. With the Addition of Mike Rhodes, owner and partner, we chose Los Alamitos as it offers the perfect mix of residential communities and commercial businesses for a opportunity for another successful location. We are very pleased the community has embraced our offerings since opening just a short time ago.” Said Gene Hobel, owner.

Located at 11105 Los Alamitos Blvd., the restaurant will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. In addition to inside seating for 49 people, the new location seats 20 extra bodies in its shaded outdoor area. Customers may come in for lunch and dinner, or call (562) 431-1111 to place to-go orders.
