It's good to support local places and this place is worth a visit! BBQ sauce was good and nice service. This is much better choice than any of the many fast food places in the same area. Eat here!

Loved their sandwiches, and the homemade potato salad was really delicious! Easy to get to...fast service. I go to Blythe on business, but if I was passing by on the interstate, I sure would get off there and get some lunch or dinner.

Had the chicken BBQ sandwich. It was pretty dry. Added lots of sauce from the squirt bottle on the table. That helped a little, but tasted like any grocery store BBQ sauce. The person I was with also put lots of the squirt bottle sauce...More

Didn't care for the coleslaw but the tri-tip sandwich was the bomb! Great flavor and the side salad was fresh!

This BBQ spot is probably the best place to eat in town. Food is always fresh and tasty! The italian pressed sandwich with brisket is my favorite next to the rebel fries. I dont think you can really go wrong with anything on the menu!...More

The meat is served without sauce, and it really doesn't need any because they do such a great job smoking it slowly. That said, try the sauce anyway - it is excellent. Not overly sweet. Location is next to McDonalds

We get out to Blythe about once a year to go to the river. We had also been in a routine of going to the same place for dinner (Mexican) every year because there really are not that many options. However, this year after a...More

Can't state the rules in California, but there were no signs prohibiting dogs and there was one on the patio when we were there. Hope this helps!

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.
