Excellent food,service was awesome and attentive! Spot on! I have gone here a few times and each time the service and food seems to always get better and better. Wait time was pretty much as expected. Staff went above and beyond as always and were very attentive.

This is a great BBQ place! It is crowded on weekends, but always worth the wait. My favorite thing about Rattler's are the different specials each day of the week! They are always a super good deal!!! I love a good deal!!

Overall very good food for the prices. The baby back ribs were great and the chicken was tender, especially the chicken breasts. A good choice for a large party to enjoy, and easy curbside takeout makes it super easy. Not my favorite baked beans, were a little soupy, but excellent garlic rolls,that I would return just to have again. If... More

This is definitely my favourite place so far to eat, I will be returning:) I had chicken and mash potatoes, the portions are huge (I couldn't eat it all)! It was great I could sit at the bar and eat... More

First time here - loved the bread...hubby and I both had bbq chicken breast and it was fabulous. Sides were good too - staff were very attentive and we liked it so much we contemplated doing takeout from here for 4th of July. Look forward to trying it again soon.

We came in with 4 adults and 2 babies for lunch. Our waitress was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable of the food served there and was very sweet. We ordered 2 salads, the Cobb which was different than the usual Cobb salad. Interesting but tasty. The BbQ salad was nothing to rave about. The chicken was dry but the rest... More

If you want a good meal at reasonable prices, and consistently good food and service, try Rattlers. Their lunch and dinner specials are very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food served.

This was perfect for a lunch date with my husband. Salad bar offers a lot of choices. A glass of wine topped it off perfectly.
