Pulled Pork Sliders

Can not get enough of these, I keep going there and always plan on ordering something else but I can't help myself from ordering the pulled pork sliders.

Poor Red's Ribs

Wow!! Hats off to the chef!! My husband and I ordered the hot wings, ribs and coleslaw. EVERY SINGLE DISH WAS YUMMY! We've been here a handful of times, usually after wine tasting. This time we went for dinner (no pre-gaming involved). Soo good. The run on the ribs was delicious. My hubby doesn't normally compliment the chef, but hands down so good. And their coleslaw is probably the best we've had at a restaurant ever. Check out Poor Red's!! They're pretty awesome. And the bar crowd is super friendly too!!

6 oz. Filet Mignon

My filet was cooked perfectly medium rare it was like butter. Tried the ribs to and they were delicious. And the golden Cadillacs are the bomb. We first visited PR's in 1980 and have been going there for 40 years. The new remodel is inviting and they left the bar original. It's worth getting off Hwy 50 to venture over to the little town of El dorado and Poor Reds

Cajun Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich

It was delicious. We did take out so it was deconstructed. Which was awesome, was not soggy went we got home, was still hot and we could control the amount of slaw and spice. Simply a amazing Thank you

Gold Cadillac

This revue might be a little late, but when I was assigned as an instructor at Navigator School in 1970-73 our unit stopped at Poor Reds at least once a month. While your 12 oz steak was our protein of choice, your Golden Cadillac's kept us there longer than we should have stayed. 50 years later I can most enthusiastically recommend Poor Reds total menu as I had eaten everything on the menu, but the one thing I can certify as being great are the Golden Cadillac's. They are smooth, delicious and more than worth the trip from Sacramento to Poor Reds. As an aside, when I brought my wife home to our rough and tumble mining town in Michigan as a 19 year old, our old town barkeeper asked her what she wanted and she told him the drink she always had at Poor Reds (a Grasshopper). The barkeep told her "lady the only Grasshopper you'll find here is in the front lawn". Oh the memories we have of that place. Glad it's still in business!

12oz New York Steak

Omg.. were do i start. What a great combination....cheesy grits then topped with those delicious vegetables, sweet potato like I never tasted, delish, cauliflower and brussels sprouts, all cooked perfectly. Then this awesone 12 oz thick perfectly cooked New York, charred just right on the outside and red and juicy 😋 on the inside. But wait their not done...then topped with a good amount of blue cheese butter topped with potato tulilles! It was so fantastic that my husband and I haven't stopped talking about it. And we are already making plans to go back and have it again real soon. One of our favorite meals we've ever had and we are foodies! Perfect would not change anything about that meal!
