Freddy Ray's puts out a fantastic BBQ. The ribs are amazing. The ribs are fall off the bone tender, seasoned perfectly and slow cooked to get the perfect tenderness and flavor.

Ribs, brisket, and pulled pork are all good. The sides are good, especially the sweet corn bread. The have sweet tea, always a plus. Next time I will try some sweet potatoe pie. Oh and awesome sauces.

Their ribs, chicken, and BBQ sauces are incredible! Their sandwich menu is also really good. The side dishes are deliciously southern, but all on the fattening side, My only complaint about this restaurant would be that they don't offer a salad as one of the side offerings.

Not just the best BBQ in Lake Elsinore, it's some of the best I have had anywhere in the USA. This place is a must try.

If you like BBQ, this is a place you don't want to miss. Down home might describe it, but just down right good will cover all the bases. It's finger-licking good, but I always get extra napkins.

Freddie Ray's has outstanding BBQ with Ribs, Tri-Tip and Pulled Pork, fantastic side dishes...BBQ Beans, coleslaw, chips, cornbread, hush puppies...and some great dessert. They also cater...we had a few trays of meat for a party...and the guests we raving about the food. Why cook when someone else can do a better job!!
