This place is hopping! Went with a party of 8, no reservations because they don't take them. The place was so busy, people everywhere; in the bar, outside eating area, inside the restaurant and even with all the crowd, we only waited 35 minutes. It was worth the wait, the BBQ ribs were amazing! Loved the BBQ sauce. Everyone at our table ordered the ribs except for one person, she ordered the salmon and she said it was delicious. Our waitress was so sweet and very attentive, even though she was extremely busy we never felt rushed. We enjoyed the ribs so much that 4 days later we called in ribs "to go" and took them home. Best BBQ joint we've been to so far. Only negative, though it didn't really bother us, it is very noisy!

The management here has it together
Always busy, and often a wait, but they manage it well, staff is friendly and efficient. Food is outstanding.

Made a trip here to try the famous Golden Cadillac, which was an interesting drink. I would love to sample more of their drinks. Food was decent, but fries were a little greasy and service was slow. We did not get our drinks until the meal was almost finished due to a large crowd pulling into the bar. The server was very apologetic. I would try this place again.

We belong to two wineries in the Placerville area, so we usually find ourselves stopping at Poor Red's on the way home. Love the outdoor patio! We had the Wedge Salad (with goat cheese, bacon bits, tomatoes) and the BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich with fries. The food is excellent, and the service outstanding. Definitely would recommend this restaurant!
