The good news - this is the best BBQ in Blythe. The bad news - we are talking about Blythe. My family and I stopped in for lunch while traveling on a recent weekend. This place gets busy, so don't expect quick service. Was really looking forward to the ribs, but when they arrived we were not impressed. They were... More

Driving to Palm Springs, we decided to eat lunch here...and were glad we did! They offered a lunch special - b-b-q sandwich (my wife got chicken, I got pastrami) with a side (we both got potatoe salad) and a drink for $8.99. Both were very tasty. Give them a try!

Anytime I am in the area this is a stop. I love the Pulled Pork Sandwich. I get the extra sauce and its amazing. I typically come here with a group of guys I work with and its always great food and fast service. I have never seen an item that didn't look amazing or taste amazing. This is a... More

One of the best BBQ's around. The food is consistently great and the portions are very good. You can have your favorite BBQ sandwhich with a "cold one" here.

I now have a dedicated reason to drive between Phoenix and Los Angeles - the smoked pastrami at Rebel BBQ. It is probably the best meat dish I have ever had - and why didn't I think of it? This was our first visit - I ordered 1/4 lb. of the brisket and a 1/4 lb. of the pastrami to... More

The staff at the Rebel BBC was attentive, very busy, and polite. None of the BBQ meats were memorable. Next time in Blythe, we will go with the fast food and keep on driving.

I eat here every night. The Tri Tip and the Jalapeno potato salad is the best I have ever had and you are out the door for around 13$. It is a great meal. They have other great sounding stuff, but the sandwich is so good, I haven't moved on yet. As an archaeologist I have been spending time in... More

Kept hearing about this and had to check it out. Hubby got the tri tip, I got the pulled pork. Amazing! Huge portions and all very good. Try the wicked white sauce instead of BBQ sauce, you will not be disappoionted. Also the baked beans and Jalapeno potato salad are homemade and wonderful. Do this!

So many Zonie's (Arizonan's) are missing out passing thru Blythe without trying this place. We stopped here on the suggestion of the gas attendant. Good service + excellent food makes for a good meal anytime of day. The french dip, roast beef and cheeseburger hit the spot for us. We'll definitely be back on the way to/from California.

Stuck in the midst of the food chain outlets: McDonalds, Pizza Hut, etc. The Rebel BBQ sign was a beacon calling to us, "Stop, stop. I'm different, I'm good!" We did. It was. We'll be stopping again on our next road trip to Ca.
