Very Good Atmosphere and Food

Came here late at night, a little after 8:00-ish and this place is still busy and this was mid-week! Order a special platter and it was huge for the 3 of us. The drinks come in a mason jar - very big. The place is very nice, not rustic, and looks fairly new. Service is very good- careful about... read more

The fact that you might have to wait means the food is worth it. Ribs, chicken, brisket, twice baked potatoes, salad bar, the variety makes it difficult to choose. Try the piece of carrot cake for dessert and share it with at least two other people...it is a generous size and is very very delicious!

The atmosphere, service and food were great! We have been searching for our favorite BBQ restaurant in the SFV, but I had been here a couple of times with a girlfriend and knew it was worth the drive (30 mi. From Burbank). My family loved the BBQ Chicken, pork ribs, and tri-tip. We all agreed that their chopped salads are... More

Very busy day with my husband shopping for furniture. We ended up in Santa Clarita in the same parking lot as Rattler's restaurant. There was a line out of the door, however Trip Advisor gave it a good rating. The service is excellent, the food is good and the portions are large. Our food came quickly and was hot. I... More
