I only rated it as average because while the was good - it's not great - I've had some of the best BBQ across the country so my grading curve is high. We arrived about an hour and half before they closed and they were...More

It's good to support local places and this place is worth a visit! BBQ sauce was good and nice service. This is much better choice than any of the many fast food places in the same area. Eat here!

Loved their sandwiches, and the homemade potato salad was really delicious! Easy to get to...fast service. I go to Blythe on business, but if I was passing by on the interstate, I sure would get off there and get some lunch or dinner.

Had the chicken BBQ sandwich. It was pretty dry. Added lots of sauce from the squirt bottle on the table. That helped a little, but tasted like any grocery store BBQ sauce. The person I was with also put lots of the squirt bottle sauce...More

Can't state the rules in California, but there were no signs prohibiting dogs and there was one on the patio when we were there. Hope this helps!

Stuck in the midst of the food chain outlets: McDonalds, Pizza Hut, etc. The Rebel BBQ sign was a beacon calling to us, "Stop, stop. I'm different, I'm good!" We did. It was. We'll be stopping again on our next road trip to Ca.
