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.

We found this to be a great little stop between Phoenix and Palm Springs. It is small and busy and the food is very good. My husband had ribs and I had pulled pork, we were pleased with both the quantity, the quality and the taste. After ordering at the counter, we sat at a table and watched as a... More

So disappointing. i unwrapped my Reuben with such anticipation of receiving something truly delicious. When i got to the last wrap and it was revealed, i saw all this juicy, moist smoked Pastrami waiting for me and i expected a great taste and exceptional sandwich. Oh, was the Pastrami good. i started by picking at the loose small pieces that... More

Rebel BBQ stands out in a sea of fast food joints. Customers order at the counter from a listing of BBQ sandwiches plus salads and more. Excellent fresh food, well-seasoned, generous servings. The staff was friendly and efficient.

Too full to function. Amazing and authentic BBQ! Delish side of Mac and cheese with great flavors. Te BBQ sandwiches had scrumptious bread and a variety of meats.

Seriously, look the menu up on the internet. A place where the first couple of pages of a menu is "International Sandwiches" and the second page is salads...that is not BBQ! There are a few BBQ selections available, but it is a small minority of selections. The BBQ sandwiches are okay, but nothing special.

Typically I'm not a fan to eat a barbecue places however we heard a non stop great reviews about this place so we go, the jalapeno potato salad was delicious along with the tri tip baked sandwich and all that barbecue sauce on it it's so delicious. Totally recommend

Wow! The BBQ here is so good! The pastrami is amazing...best ever! Small place w/ line out the door, but if passing thru, definitely worth the wait. Service is slow, but only because understaffed for the amount of customers. These employees were busting their butts! Food was fantastic!

I have had BBQ in the best places in the world (San Antonio is a close 2nd) but this place was heaven. We were travelling through to San Diego. Keep in mind this is a bit of a hole in the wall. What do want from Blythe? My daughter insisted on having McDonalds so I went next door to this... More

We stopped at Rebel BBQ for lunch on our way to Scottsdale and were impressed. We had a pulled pork and pastrami Reuben sandwich. They both were incredible and melted in our mouths. We came just before lunch and it wasn't busy yet. By the time we were leaving, it was getting busy. We loved Rebel BBQ so much that... More

I think my first sentence sums it up. Thank goodness we had a choice beyond Fast food. The parking is in the back and abundant. All of us enjoyed our meals.
