Have had meals here many times. The service is great and the food is even better. Have friends that frequent this restaurant often too. We have never had a bad meal here.

We've been going to Rattler's BBQ for years. It is good food in a fun western atmosphere. When we are looking for good salads, BBQ or want something other than Stonefire, we like to go here. Good menu with many choices. Somewhat loud atmosphere.

At least that's what we were told. It could use an update. The salad bar was nice. The famous tritip cut was not very good to me. Hubs thought it was okay. The chicken was good. Staff was kind.

My family and I have been going to Rattler's for years. Although their food is really delicious, I think their prices are too high, and cocktail drink prices are too high. It's a bit of a loud place, for families and large groups. I love their Tri-Tip chopped salad, and I only order that. But, people like barbecue for sure,... More

Great food and great service. Best ribs ever. Often a special for the dinner menu. Their special is regular food at a lower price for that evening. Go there often.

My family and I went to Rattlers in search of good BBQ in CA. Our waitress told us how they slow roast the BBQ over night so we were ready to eat. We got a combination of Tri tips ( roast beef), baby back ribs, and beef ribs. All the meat tasted like too many wood chips were used. The... More

Around the Santa Clarita Valley, most people know of Rattler's, as it has quite a legacy. Being a lover of smoked meats, I was anxious to try the mesquite-smoked offerings, and started right in with their ribs, but found them a bit boring and under-seasoned. The smoked chicken fared a bit better, but still felt uninspired and challenged to be... More

We don't often go to BBQ restaurants anymore as my husband says he generally finds them very disappointing and the food not that good. The room is very nice and has a very warm vibe to it. It is not as casual as some BBQ restaurants We started off with happy hour at the bar and they gave us yummy... More
