Pulled Pork Sandwich

Amazing juicy best flavor pulled pork sandwich I have ever eaten !! We live in the bay area and will drive to Poor Reds Bar B Q for their amazing food and super fun atmosphere. Totally recommend, such a great day trip drive and the old bar is so much fun to hang out in while waiting for your table. 10 out of 10 stars !!!

Brown Cow

This is an amazing drink! Not only does Poor Red's have the best drinks in El Dorado County all of their food is delicious. I love the pulled pork sliders as a snack to get started but you've got to try the steaks!!!

Poor Red's Ribs

Had to miss out on the Rib Cook Off at The Nugget in Sparks this year :( So, how to replace it?? Poor Red's RIBS!!! Started it out with a Wedge Salad a Gold Cadillac and add a little Mac & Cheese for good measure. I almost wasn't even sad I missed RCO!!! Poor Red's!! One of our absolute FAVORITE dine out spots around!!!

Pulled Pork Sandwich

I have had just about every dish here! While they are all good, I live the Pulled Pork and/or the Ribs… both are my favorite meals and are AWESOME!

12oz New York Steak

What a great, memorable night! We are new to the area and we've driven by Poor Reds a few times and we decided we needed to check it out. My wife and I stopped in last night and had one of our favorite evenings in years. The steak I had was cooked to perfection. The 1/2 Rack of Ribs my wife had was excellent. We loved the drink menu. My wife had the Trailer Ice Tea, and I had the Gold Cadillac. Okay, we each had two. Our server, Ashley was personable and attentive. We've found our "Go To Place!"

Cajun Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich

Absolutely delicious!!! I usually don't order fried foods but decided to go for it and I definitely wasnt disappointed. The spices were right in point and I got it with a side of macaroni and cheese which is also one of the best I've ever had. Glad to have this restaurant in our backyard.

Poor Red's Ribs

We have enjoyed Poor Red's for many years. Sometimes with time and change of ownership Restaurants suffer....NOT Poor Reds! We always enjoy good cocktails, fantastic food (BBQ!) and friendly staff. It's a drive for us from Roseville to get here but well worth it everytime! Keep up the great service, food and atmosphere.

Brown Cow

I visited Sacramento in 1987 and a family fried brought be and some friends to Poor Red's - I was trying to locate it on the web for a while and couldn't because I swore it was called "Big Red's" and was in Nevada City. Besides the food and drinks - the thing I remember most was those red seats against the wall - because that was where we sat while waiting for our table. I also remember drinking Brown Cows - they were delicious. I was totally blown away by your place - being from Brooklyn, NY - there is no place there like Poor Red's... I am so glad that it has been restored and is up and running - what a unique place. I'm still in New York State, but it's on my bucket list to come back to Poor Red's someday.
