Great BBQ, friendly staff

I was driving from Palm Springs to Sequoia National Park and spent the night in Tehachapi. I didnt want to eat fast food, so I decided to check this place out. Unfortunately, they were out of Indian Tacos for the night, so I cant rate them, but they did have very good pulled pork BBQ. The only... read more

Great food, pull pork is my favorite either on a plate or sandwich. Red slaw and Mac n Cheese is savory. Owners are right on site and the staff is always wonderful. Outside seating is available or inside with a great vintage items and photos. Great for kids too or informal date night

I think they warmed the food in the microwave, the food was not fresh off the grill! I was really sad about that very disappointed! BBQ ribs were very dry! Baked potato was brown!

If it hadn't been for the recommendation of our motel staff, we doubt we would have chosen to eat at the Red House BBQ -- it really looks somewhat questionably shabby from the exterior. Inside, however, it is filled with the delicious smells of meat cooking and feels like an authentic small-town western eatery. We were early, yet the place... More

This small restaurant serves home-style food in the most casual way possible. Menu is on a blackboard behind the cash register where you order, get a numbered card to match your order, pay for the food and find a table. However, the food is as tasty as "mom" used to make for you. The big BBQ burning local hardwoods cooking... More

Every Friday night we split a 4 pc cat fish comes with 2 sides for 12.00. Its enough for my wife and I and you cant beat the price. It is southern deep fried. They also have a full BBQ menu that is well worth getting. Its a family owned restaurant with the owners almost always there and greeting the... More

This restaurant may look like a shack but its fayre and staff are absolutely fabulous, Huge portions of down to earth dishes leave one wanting for nothing. The Honey Bourbon Ribs along with side dishes was spectacular. There is nowhere better in Tehachapi for dinner. Be warned, it closes at 8pm.

We'd arrived in Tehachapi in the early evening after a long drive down from Yosemite. After checking into the hotel, we went out for some food knowing that in California, places close around 8pm (why is that??). We arrived at Red House BBQ just on 8pm and feared they were shutting but they invited us in and said serving us... More

whenever family or friends come to visit we head to Red House for the best BBQ in California!! Love the relaxed atmosphere and music. If you are a vegetarian order one of their huge salads!

Took a trip down memory lane, excellent old style rock and roll. Reminded me of when i was a kid. Good food and the beer was cold.
