This Sept my wife & I had the opportunity to spend a few days in Simi Valley where we once lived. A visit to Reds BBQ was a must on our itinerary. We remember many years ago when Reds first opened in Simi valley. It was at another location to where it is now, & Tim the owner was always... More

Good restaurant for different types of BBQ meals for entire family. For my visit the BBQ meal was good, with nice side orders to add. The bar can add to the entire evening with several beverages of your choice.

A family oriented restaurant that features quality BBQ, it's the real deal. The interior is nothing to write home about, but it's clean and friendly and the potions are generous.

Their baby back ribs are so delicious. This is my 3rd time eating here. My 1st time was the BBQ pork sandwich with roasted potatoes and slaw which tasted like good Ole NC BBQ and the 2nd time the trip tip salad. Yummy. The big potato with veggies and tried tip is awesome. Get the brownie sundae in a 48... More

First time ever been to Reds. I was no impressed at all. When I found out that they had beef ribs I was so excited. The ribs was so dry over cooked. They did not have any flavor. I don't even think they was smoked. The Mac and cheese tasted like it came out of a Kraft box. The Cole... More

This place is great! I have been going here since I was just a kid, and can't think of a time I didn't enjoy the food here. The staff is also friendly and quick. Their menu has a good amount of options. Their BBQ is amazing! Their sauce is the best I've had! They also have great salads too. You... More

Let me first start off by saying that I never give "terrible" reviews. I just don't like to; simply because I don't like something doesn't mean you won't like it. I like to review restaurants I find that have great food and excellent service so everyone can try them. Having said that, when a restaurant is consistently bad I really... More

I have been there several times, and have never been displeased. There is a great atmosphere for families or dates. The servers are attentive and bringing more DELIClOUS garlic rolls and soft drinks. It is usually busy with a line out the door, so plan on getting there early. They also offer take out, delivery, and nightly specials and early... More

We didn't want to eat at either of the cafeteria options at the Reagan Library - found this place after doing a quick phone search. Everything was yummy ESPECIALLY the garlic rolls!!! We both had salads with BBQ meat. Very good - will go back when passing through again!

Always prompt service. Polite staff. Tri tip or chicken salad for lunch and a steak for dinner. Not too upscale pricing, but satisfies.
