Great Happy Hour!

This is a fun place to go for happy hour. They have drink specials and also a happy hour menu with street tacos, sliders, etc. I also really like to go there for lunch because they have an awesome salad bar. Their tri-tip is great and so are the ribs. They have dinner specials every night. A... read more

Great menu for a business lunch. The service and food are great. The chicken BBQ salad is the best in town.

Ok so I don't write reviews good or bad, as I am a true believer that if I receive bad service I don't go back and give my word of mouth ten fold as I am in the hospitality field and have had many opportunities to refer guests to restaurants. I have had great service at Rattlers in the past,... More

Even though I was very disappointed with my Trip Tip and Arugula salad today, I've had many good meals here as well. Problem is, it's hit or miss. The trip tip is usually good. So is the chicken. Last visit my chicken was dry, especially the breast. This time the trip tip was cut into tiny little pieces, I mean... More

the food, the people and the atmosphere make this a "must" visit. I go here every time I visit my family in California and wouldn't dream of missing a visit. The tri-tip is delicious but the ribs are also a must. Salads and rolls to die for. Don't go if you're on a diet - that would be a crime!

Have never been disappointed coming here for dinner. Wish their salad bar had a wider selection. Also love their garlic rolls. Have visited as couple as well as with friends.

My husband and I went to try Rattlers based on word of mouth from one of our neighbors. The wait wasn't too long for a busy weekday night, and the staff was friendly and polite, as was our waitress (her name escapes me). The only real "complaint" is that the food could have been a little better. I ordered the... More

We went to Rattler's the other night because of the 5 Star rating of the Trip Advisor review and we were not disappointed! The Service was excellent and the food delicious! There were 3 of us and we ordered the "The Roundup".A giant platter with BBQ Chicken, Tri Tip, Baby Back Ribs,Beef Ribs and Shredded Onions. Served with two Rattler’s... More

When we have the urge for good BBQ its a no brainer as to where we are going. I love the pork ribs, salad bar and a cold beer and more napkins. Wife loves the BBQ Chicken breast and some sides and of course a French Martini they make for her . I like a simple menu when it comes... More
