Description: 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.

Very good, highly recommend this for great meat! I had a salad with brisket and the dressing was super and there was plenty of meat.

A good BBQ place that's easy on/off I 10? What a deal! We had the pastrami sandwich & half rack of ribs washed down with Rolling Rock :-). Yay! Ok, so maybe it wouldn't win prizes, but it was still pretty darned good. Even some veggie options, as I recall (but keep in mind this is a BBQ joint).

Less than a minute off I 10 and so worth the stop. Brisket was super tender, Mac and cheese piping hot. Service excellent. It's a little pricey but makes the PHX-Palm Springs drive (boring!) almost bearable. Forget the fast food and eat here.

Was disappointed when looking at menu. Most of menu is hamburgers not bbq. Bbq is below average but good for Blythe where it's fast food or Mexican food. Place used to be better.

This place is a gem. Just about the best BBQ we've ever had. The interior space is really small, with more tables outside. We were there in January, and lucked out and found a table inside. Great food - Not fancy - Don't miss it.

If your going to stop in Blythe to eat you should stop here. Clean, friendly, the restaurant is not smokey (like you might expect). Food was excellent and we hit the road again after a quick coffee at Starbucks right up the street. We had the brisket sandwich and the 1/2 chicken (vinigar slaw and jalapeño potato salad). Food was... More

Had some bbq at this take out or order in joint. Its a decent option for the area. The food was OK but not beyond good. Brisket was very fatty, chicken fingers seemed factory made. Prices were reasonable. Service decent (you order at counter and they bring the food to you eventually).

Anyplace that makes their own potato chips is alright in my book. Very tasty burgers and sides. Salad dressing is homemade also. Great local spot in Blythe close to I10.

Food =2; Service =2; Ambiance =.5 This should be far and away rated MUCH MUCH lower in the rankings than it is. This makes a McDonalds look good.

Ate here after a long drive in from SD based on TA recommendations. I tried the brisket sandwich. The meat was tender but did not have much smoke flavor. It tasted like brisket I make at home in the oven. There wasn't much meat either. The sauce was bbq sauce on the table was fine - nothing special. I ended... More
