Good Family Bar-b-Que in Simi Valley

Red's BBQ is one of my favorite eateries in Simi Valley. Good for lunch as well as dinner. The servers are usually high school students who are well groomed friendly and attentive. The shredded onions are to die for. Great dipped in BBQ sauce. The potato skins are very good as well. They start you... read more

If you want great barbecue, this is your place. The menu is terrific, especially the tri-tip. They serve complimentary fresh rolls at the table. The barbecue sauce is so good that it is on the table at all times. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

We have traveled most of the US and nothing compares to Red's. The meat is moist, grilled to perfection and service is great. Their portions are large. We get the two combinations dinner baby back ribs and tri-tip which we usually take some home for lunch the next day.

The salads and BBQ Chicken were very good. Service was also very good. Lots of choices on menu and daily specials. I had the Tri Tip Salad and was surprised at the large about of meat in the salad. The full salad really filled me up.

I reviewed this restaurant a couple of years ago and I'm always pretty disappointed in the quality of the food here (except the tri tip and the garlic rolls). Unfortunately now I have to add the bad service to the list. Since our options for BBQ are limited, I have opted to go back to the restaurant only for pick... More

The Tri Tip salad is my favorite! Generous amount of Tri tip pieces and and the other ingredients are great. The hot Garlic rolls are the best. I also love the shredded onion rings. I frequent Reds for both lunch and dinner. Very friendly service too.

Went to Reds BBQ and had a great lunch. The staff and servers were friendly and helpful. I ordered the baby back ribs and baked beans. Great as usual. Their dinner rolls are exceptional. I recommend this restaurant.

I'd like to give it a 3.5 but there was no .5 They have good food, I love the BBQ chicken salad. The beef ribs are good, the baby backs have been chewy lately. Great pulled pork. The restaurant is nice inside, a little loud when full. The kitchen is visible. Cute wall of red heads since the owner and... More

I'm always pretty disappointed in the quality of the food here. This was my third time and I probably won't be back. They would need to get a new cook!!

We had a visitor from the East coast who went with us to Red's for dinner, she and my son both had the prime rib special and all but licked the plates clean. To say they enjoyed the meal would be an understatement!!
