Poor Red's Bar-B-Q

Historical Poor Red’s BBQ Restaurant and Bar is a renowned iconic roadhouse, home to locals and wayward travelers seeking refreshment and mouthwatering barbequed steak, ribs and chicken. Our simple, well executed menu reflects and preserves our long-running reputation as not only a watering hole, but as a comfortable place to enjoy comfortable food. Opened daily for lunch and dinner, we focus on keeping our community engaged by using fresh, local ingredients, including some of the Sierra Foothill’s finest wines.
As faithful stewards of the area’s rich history, we strive to maintain the spirit of “Poor Red” and his “Rich Opal.” Through the traditional Golden Cadillac cocktail, the wall murals, and the “silver” dollar coins, our patrons will appreciate their rustic, refurbished, favorite historic hot-spot. Our friendly and timely service warmly welcomes each guest, creating memorable experiences with each visit. Poor Reds: a destination for the young, the old, the “in-laws,” and the “out-laws.”
