Cajun Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich

This menu item is a must try! Everything is great and the staff is awesome! Wish I worked closer so I could go for lunch and try their amazing looking weekly specials!

Poor Red's Ribs

The BBQ ribs are fantastic and the sauce was amazing. We still had dessert which was the Peach Blueberry croissant with Vanilla ice cream. WOW!

Poor Red's Burger

This is hands down the Best Burger up the hill! The mesquite flavor is in perfect balance with the great quality of ground beef they serve. Love the pickle too.

Rustic Wedge

I just revisited poor reds after 25 years and I just love this place! So much character. Fabulous food with a great menu selection. And the drinks! Friendly atmosphere. It hit every mark. A home town fav!!!! I'll be back very soon with many friends. I also love the history of poor Reds. This is true Americana [?]

"Old Fashioned" Chicken & Waffles

Poor Red's take on chicken n' waffles is uniquely flavorful and will not disappoint. Juicy fried chicken paired with a pecan Belgium waffle and Bourbon maple syrup is outrageous but to top it off with rosemary butter creates such a wild combination that you want to clean the plate. Without a doubt the best chicken n' waffles in El Dorado County...nay...the greater Sacramento area!

Rustic Wedge

Poor Reds is delicious. I love the Wedge salad. I work remotely and Poor Reds is a quick walk during my lunch. I must get this salad 2-3 times a week. The burgers and garlic fries are a weekend favorite. Loved that they decided to convert the parking into an AMAZING outdoor space. The crew is AWESOME.
