My daughter and I ate here once and it was all of the above. We MAY try it again someday just to see if it's better now.

by far the best BBQ ribs I have ever tasted. We stopped on our way to San Francisco. My spouse was growling at me when I came close to her while she was eating the ribs! I have pictures of her eating the ribs with sauce all over her face and hands. she told me I would lose a few... More

I'm a hillbilly from the BBQ capital of the world - Owensboro, KY - where the Moonlite BBQ and several other BBQ houses set the standard. I know my BBQ. The Red House in Tehachapi knows what they're doing. I had the ribs and some brisket. Both were perfect. I'm sure the rest of the offerings are just as delicious.... More

Best advertisement is word of mouth, someone told me about this place so I drove 30 mile out of my way and it was well worth it. Cozy atmosphere with a friendly staff. Tons of cool memorabilia on the wall. I had the pulled pork sandwich with a red coleslaw, the slaw itself was a treat. BBQ sauce, both mild... More

This place is a small place but the food is great and the service can not be beat. On your rides to Bakersfield we stop here almost every Friday to enjoy this great food...as a PGR rider we travel so we eat in a lot of places...and this one will not let you down. It is some of the best... More

I went to the Red House BBQ for a work function. Seating can be a problem if it’s super crowded so go early as possible. Food is good and the prices are not too bad. I order the small pulled pork sandwich which was pretty good and big for a small. It’s not hard to locate, just look for a... More

We stop at Tehachapi once a year, on an RV trip to Bass Lake and back. We have stopped here before but I wanted to re-iterate how GOOD this BBQ really is. I love chicken, and this time I had pulled chicken...it was tender and tasty. My wife had the 1/2 rack of ribs and she couldn't eat them all... More

We ordered and split a meal - too much food for us with a single order! You order at the counter and the waitress brings the food to you. The ribs were tender and had a terrific taste. We ate outside and it was a bit windy to be really comfortable, but that was our own fault - plenty of... More
