Delicious BBQ

Just enteringthis place is so cool and transports you back to Cowboy times. The walls are full of different object. The food is very tasty and you can also sit outside in a patio.

My wife and I gave this place another try but it wasn't very good. The ribs were dry and the brisket was floating in a liquid that wasn't very appetizing. Tried their mac and cheese and it was bland and pretty dry. If you want a good meal got o the Village Grill that is right next door. The Village... More

Red House never disappoints always perfect. Everything prepared on site. Big smoke house in the back if you like smoked Bbq then you have to stop and try. Go with chicken and ribs. Or rib tips but the rest of the menu is just as good

This is a great find. If you are anywhere close it is worth the trip. Great BBQ with a slight spicy flavor. Try the red cabbage slaw and potato wedges.

While staying for one night in Tehachapi we decided that BBQ sounded good and the reviews for Red House were good enough to get us to try it. As expected the food was very good, tender ribs, tasty potato logs and good coleslaw. The service was exemplary and the décor was well, interesting in a way but the ambience was... More

We were told the ribs and chicken here were great, but we were disappointed with what we had. The site is in an old building, not that large, covered inside with interesting knick-knacks. The staff is friendly and efficient. Prices are pretty fair. But my wife's ribs were overdone and very flavored. She didn't finish them. My catfish po'boy, however,... More

This place is delicious, it needs no glowing language or fancy description. It's simply great BBQ. If you enjoy meat your wanted to eat here, if your a vegetarian like my wife there is nothing for you, your should stay away.

This is the go to place for BBQ in Tehachapi. Melt in your mouth beef, pork, and darn good catfish. The sides are homemade and they have a discount menu for seniors.

This is the best BBQ in Tehachapi! The owner uses fresh meat to the highest quality of seasonings! I just can't recommend one thing on the menu because I've tried it all and it's all excellent.

Not much to look at. Quite rustic. Food is very good. I had pulled pork and really enjoyed it. Large portions. Patio seating was nice but it can get pretty windy. Closes early as do most places in the area.
