Yet another solidly dependable meal from Gold Rush. The service was much better than our last visit and the food came out fast and piping hot. The prices are spot on too. These guys know how to do it and do it consistently right!!!!!

Gold Rush BBQ not only has excellent ribs but their side dishes are incredible. You must try the Yam Patties, the garlic mash potatoes, the Mac and Cheese, thin crispy fried onions, corn bread and the cucumber salad. There are probably more but I can speak with authority on the above. The restaurant has been in business 13 years and... More

We got our order to go for four adults and three kids. The food was really good even though they didn't have what I wanted (chopped chicken). The server helped us figure out what and how much to order and was super nice and patient. The whole chicken turned out to be quite good and the macaroni and cheese was... More

Usually go here at least twice on vacation in the area. The all you can eat specials are a good value and the service is efficient. The bar b que varies but is generally worthy. I did notice that this year it appeared cleaner then the past couple years. Overall, good experience and will continue to patronize.

Really enjoyed our lunch at Giold Rush. Friends told us about the place so we stopped by for a bite. The pulled pork sandwich was the special at a very good price. We also had the beef brisket and enjoyed all three of the sauces. Arrived just before the lunch rush so the placed filled up quick. The rolls for... More

There were four of us for dinner, all ribs and BBQ fans...The wine list is limited and the better wines are only by the bottle. The Sutter Home house wine was just OK, served in small bottle like on an airplane. Service was prompt and friendly. The place is very noisy, lots of screaming kids, but clean...Three had the beef...

I have eaten at Goldrush many times and I have never been disappointed. One of the best things about this restaurant is the variety of dishes that they offer. The atmosphere is rustic and reminds me of the days of the chuck wagon. Love it!

Restaurant is casual, very busy during snowbird season. All I can say is YAM PATTIES! They are to die for! I could make a meal on these!

I'm resident of Venice, have eaten at Gold Rush many years. One lb of pork bar bq has always been great. This summer the pork has been a little tough. Tonight, Sat, couldn't chew it. I called Frank and told him we've been fans for years but can't chew the pork. He gave me a big yawn, "been to busy"... More

It had been quite awhile and when a friend suggested meeting here for dinner I was delighted. Parking lot was crowded so I thought there would be a wait, but we got lucky. Our waiter was Alex, yet I was greeted by other workers who seemed to remember me well, and that's always a pleasant experience. Food was just great,... More
