Always enjoy Rattlers...

Since we live in the same area as Rattlers, we have been going there for years...we always enjoy ourselves and the food is great! We have also used Rattlers Catering for years with our business functions, and there are no complaints there either. We highly recommend Rattlers BBQ.

Rattler's BBQ didn't look like anything special from the outside. However, when we got inside we were impressed with the ambiance. Nice salad bar, excellent BBQ, and good selection of craft beer. We'd highly recommend Rattler's.BBQ.

We had out of town guest and they wanted Meat and a salad bar, well Rattlers is the best place for miles. The salad bar is great and the special of the night was 1/2 BBQ chicken with tri-tip and two sides and the salad bar for $15.95. The salad bar alone was $9.95, but we wound up having fantastic...

Rattlers is a staple in the SCV. They are always busy and the food is always good. Been there more times than I can count, including both the current and previous locations. Need catering? 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...
