Had the classic stop over from San Diego to Phoenix. Cool place to have some BBQ lunch. The cheeseburger combo is excellent.

We had stopped here on our move across country. They let us put our cats (in the carrier) on a chair outside the window with a fan on them so we could eat a quick meal. They also offered us and another couple with a dog water. Which was really sweet as it was 109°. Our kitties ended up in... More

Rebel BBQ looked like one of the better food options in Blythe, and we had a good experience overall. It's very casual and you order your food at the counter and then find a seat at one of the tables. The BBQ is served on styrofoam plates with plastic utensils, so it's not the easiest to eat the meat items... More

I had the Piglet. It's pulled pork with slaw on a bun. Very good. Daughter had the Cuban. It's a pressed sandwich with brisket, ham, and Swiss cheese. She said it was great.

The skinny: Parking- lot in back Service- friendly Restroom- clean single Coke factor- fountain with free refills Decor- sparse Food- yummy Blythe is a fast food chain town so it's nice when you can find a mom and pop type place that has good food at reasonable prices. We ordered: Pastrami sandwich with fries and the portion is so big... More

1/2 smoked chicken and the 1/2 rack of ribs are good but the salad was disappointing. Great place if you are only wanting protein. Friendly service but plastic cutlery and plates not easy on meaty foods.

Not the same as we are used to in Kentucky however it was good. We had the BBQ chicken and Ribs. The full slab of ribs was a very large serving, too much for even 2 of us.

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.
