Sandra Dee's BBQ & Seafood

601 15th Street
Sacramento, CA.
(916) 448-6375

Sandra Dee’s BBQ & Seafood is a family-owned establishment where your senses will run wild. Great food, great service, and the creation of a memorable dining experience is what this restaurant is all about.

Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que

6628 Lonetree Boulevard
Rocklin, CA.
(916) 780-7427

Lucille’s smokes the finest cuts of meat at a constant temperature of 225 degrees, for hours on end, which produces some of the most authentic Southern BBQ in the area. Whether your taste runs to Carolina-style, Texas-style, Memphis-style, or any other style in between, chances are you’re going to be partial to Lucille’s style – perfectly cooked BBQ with a smoke-ring of pink around the edges, encrusted by a “bark” of spices and juices, and tender it practically falls off the bone.
