No problem. They handle all sizes of parties. Excellent choice for a casual night out. In fact were headed there for my birthday dinner tonight.

Great place for dinner and families. Lots of variety, big portions. We love their weekday deals, especially the prime rib dinner. The garlic rolls are amazing but don't eat too much of them because you need to save room for the rest of the food. The salad bar selection is okay (nothing spectacular). It can get pretty busy during dinner... More

I have lived in Santa Clarita off and on for the last 20 years. Rattlers has always been a great restaurant. Like all BBQ Restaurants it's not really inexpensive, but it is worth the price. I tend to go to restaurants in "off hours," early in the afternoon if I am on my own. So it is usually not terribly... More

The ribs were ok; not the best that I've had (I prefer Famous Dave's), but the sauce was good and the ribs were tender. The tri tip was very good and very tender. We will eat there again.

One of my favorite bbq joints. The tri-tip is the best I've ever had, melt in your mouth. The fried onions are also a must have. I've been going here for 30 years and always leave happy. The week night specials cannot be be. Busy and loud most nights with a wonderful patio to use with the right weather. Highly... More

For Mother's Day I knew it would be busy everywhere, so I decided to pickup takeout and go to a park with my kids. I ordered a week in advance and hoped nothing would be forgotten in the rush of an obviously very busy day for restaurants. Instead, it was all GREAT. The service was quick and efficient for the...

Average eatery with various choices of bbq entrees. Average salad bar with good selections of greens and vegetable offerings including cold cuts etc. Fairly large restaurant with ample seating. BBQ is above average but nothing to rave about. Good value for your buck.

First time visit. Great service, lots of yummy items on the menu. I had the bbq chicken salad and my friend had the southern pulled pork sandwich. Be sure add onion strip to the salad and sandwiches. Salad needed a little more dressing. Will make this a favorite.
