This was perfect for a lunch date with my husband. Salad bar offers a lot of choices. A glass of wine topped it off perfectly.

I enjoy a good bbq, but this was just average tasting. Nothing that would get me to come back over and over again.

We recently had some friends over for dinner. Since it was a work night, we decided to order take out from Rattler's, which turned out to be a terrific choice!! Everyone agreed the food was fantastic! We had ribs, tri tip, mashed potatoes, Caesar salad and rolls. Everything dish was delicious! We will go back for sure!

Rattlers is a great southern California BBQ restaurant with good sized portions of great food. I've been here numerous times over the years and it's as good today as it was years ago. Today I got take out, and I have to say it was quick and efficient. The guy at the counter made it easy to split the check... More

They have a great salad bar and excellent meats and garlic rolls that have been swimming in a garlic olive oil mixture. They come to the table warm, and almost melt in your mouth like butter. Roasted garlic and many other surprises which I love in this salad bar. People that work here are great! Enjoy!

This is definitely a place that LOCALS know about !! It isn't one of the big chain BBQ places that you have been to, but the Food is outstanding and the Price is VERY reasonable for what you get. If you come during the week, you can get one of their Dinner specials for a very good price. They have... More
