With summer on the horizon, everyone is in the mood for bar-b-que’s, pool time and warm weather. Well, we’ve got you covered when it comes to the bar-b-que. Here is a list of the best places to get your rib on this summer.
Texas West BBQ
1600 Fulton Ave.
The Owners, Managers and Chefs of locally owned and operated Texas West BBQ have dedicated themselves to the pit masters art, resulting in three restaurants with a fiercely loyal clientele that have come to recognize Texas West as “the landmark BBQ joint of Sacramento, Placer and surrounding counties”. Texas West has been voted #1 Best BBQ restaurant and best Caterer for the last five years in a row.
Sandra Dee's BBQ & Seafood
601 15th Street
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
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.
JR's Texas BBQ
180 Otto Circle
Voted BEST Bar-B-Que for the past six years, and also a recipient of the prestigious California Restaurant Association 5-Star Award for best Bar-B-Que and Catering, an award never before given to a Bar-B-Que restaurant. J.R’s Texas BBQ’s customers rave over the fall off the bone ribs, as well as everything else served at this establishment. Check it out!
