We were only in Napa for one night and my uncle suggested this place because of their delicious salads. He warned us that the large size salad was "really big" but I was starving and got the large anyway. It was the biggest salad I've ever seen and there was no way I could finish it. You get to choose... More

Best barbecue in Napa, California. The chicken and ribs are amazing and the barbecue sauce is made in-house and is amazing! Great baked potatoes, potato salad, coleslaw, and cornbread too. Very good service and quality control. A must-see if you are in Napa and are in the mood for barbecue!

Small cafe serving BBQ, burgers, comfort food. Fast and friendly staff. Nice customers too. They have a build your own salad with an extensive list of ingredients for such a small diner. Thy seem to do a brisk take-out business.

Interior and exterior are charmingly outdated. The service - very attentive and nice. We all tried the bbq and coming from the south we have to admit it was not quite as good as we are used to but still very delicious and better then most other places. The prices are excellent and the 1960 charm was well as the... More

We have been to the Red Rock two times now on our trip to Napa. What a find. The cafe itself is quite small. It is well appointed and clean. The staff is friendly they make you feel like family. The counter has only about ten seats, but it is very cozy. They serve wine and have five or so... More

We came here based on Trip Advisor reviews and were disappointed. The BBQ was just okay for what I paid. Our main issue was that it took 10 minutes for the server to come get our order. We had to go ask if anyone was coming. The server's response when she showed up was that they got "slammed" all of... More

We literally stumbled on this place during our travels. New in town. Hungry. Wanted a local great. We checked trip advisor while at a red light. One legal u-turn and we were in the right place for awesome food. I don't eat beef often but when I do it must be worth it. Red Rock Cafe is so worth it.... More

This place was cute, cozy and yummy. The garlic fries were out of this world. I got the brisket sandwich with au jeux. Erin, our server took care of us. Actually all the wait staff were nice to us.

I would rate this restaurant at 4 and half stars. The food is great, but the menu has limited selection of grilled foods. I have eaten the chicken sandwich many times before which is excellent and the burgers are also very good. The couple we were with tried the tri tip sandwich and they said it was outstanding. We like... More

Great fries, made exactly how you want them to be, the greens on the salad were so fresh, but on the Fried Chicken Salad - The Fried Chicken is DRY Chicken BREAST. I never favored white meat, now instead of putting a juicy piece of thigh or leg chicken pieces in your salad they put dry like the Sahara Desert... More
