Best BBQ Restaurant Around!

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... read 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

The service was good. The food portions were good. The food was fresh and tasted very good. The meat was tender and loved the garlic rolls. The prices were reasonable.

I've been a customer of rattlers since they opened their doors for business in this valley. When they moved to there current location it did not impact their business. I've always enjoyed their great service and food. Tonight was no exception. My only COMPLAINT was receiving a dinner, which consisted of about 4 to 6 ounces of excellent tasting Tri... More

I wish it were less expensive so I could eat there more often! Their carrot cake is to die for, and the BBQ is pretty good! I would definitely recommend eating there more often than possible if you can!

When I want pork ribs, Rattler's is the place I go! A group of friends and I go to various restaurants in the Santa Clarita Valley every Friday night. One of our most favorite places to go is Rattler's. The ribs are so meaty and flavorful. The grilled veges are fabulous as well. Generous portions which means leftovers for the... More

There is a long list of side dishes that you can have with your BBQ'ed meat. We had the "Double baked mashed potatoes." Loaded with butter and lumps. Yes lumps. Lots a people love... More
