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.

This is a very good place to stop when going to "the river" or heading down the road. The service is fast, friendly and courteous. The food is very good and consistent. I have never had a bad sandwich. When it cools off, if it ever does, it is nice to sit outside in the evening and enjoy the BBQ.

We can in with 21 persons. 11 children between 0 and 10 and 10 parents. We had a mix of the menu and it was all very nice. Much much better than any mc Donald's or other francise.

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. Menu consists of BBQ, ribs, and burgers. Fountain drinks and bottled beers. Good size portions. Restaurant seats about 30 inside and has room for about 20 on... More

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

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.
