Beats just about anything in Blythe

You will pay a bit more than fast food. It's worth it to me to have something good. There are limited options along the road and this is one of the best choices. They keep it very clean. Brisket sandwich was good but I preferred the pork. Just my preference.

I eat there every time I go thru town on my way to LA. Your not going to find better food in the area. I heard that the owners recently expanded in Lake Havasue as well. The employees are friendly.

We were driving from California to Sedona. Found this review on Yelp and it didn't disappoint. Great food, very local kind of place. We enjoyed it. Stopped somewhere else across the way on the way home and was disappointed we didn't come back.

no frills but good quality food! Be prepared to make a mess, as the sandwiches overflow with great meat. Had the beef and the corned beef and both were excellent. Beats chain food all to heck. A definite stop in the future when travelling.

The only negative such as it is was the delay to order. Butchery delay was from a constantly ringing phone for pickup orders. This small place was seriously hopping. The 1/2 rack ribs was plenty and I am NOT a small guy or shy eater. My son got the chef salad and he said it was the best one he... More

We tried this restaurant while passing through town and our hotel said it was the best. The food was good and there was plenty to fill you up. The girl at the counter taking orders was definitely not as friendly as what we are used to but the taste of the food made it better. Didn't seem as though she... More

We found this through Trip Advisor. There aren't many choices between Palm Desert and Phoenix. We split the beef brisket. The interesting thing about the preparation was that the meat was ground instead of sliced. It reminded me of Uncle Sam's in Phoenix. Service was good, it was essentially fast food. The place was busy but we got serviced quickly.... More

If you don't mind the lack of ambience, the bbq is terrific! We always stop in Blythe both going and coming from California and have seen the sign for this place but never stopped. It will now become our dining place in Blythe. The house-made pastrami sandwich is so delicious and juicy! I had the tri-tip sandwich - while good,... More

Based on reviews, we stopped at Rebel BBQ while driving through Blythe. The pastrami was shredded with burned edges and had little taste other than salt. Neither my husband nor I could finish eating the sandwich. Carl' Jr. Across the street would have been preferable. Fast food was not our choice but at least you know what to expect.
