After a soccer game, we took our boys to Kinder's Meat and Deli. We had a vegetarian with us and I was concerned that she'd find something. No worries - salads are on the menu at Kinders! BBQ is the main attraction. I ordered a pastrami sandwich but there was no kraut to make it a reuben. Fries were enjoyed... More

I have been to Kinder's a few times for lunch and a couple of times for dinner. The food is always good and there is plenty of it on your plate. The atmosphere is more of a low key atmosphere. If you sit in there back room it's pretty quiet and you can carry on a good conversation without too... More

I cant say I have eaten here but I did come to check it out. I am a big fan of Kinders BBQ sauce. Since I discovered their sauce I do not use any other to date. When I realized there was a Kinders in Chico I had to check it out. Not really what I expected. The place is... More

the perfect quick lunch spot right across from CSUC's new parking garage and arts and humanities building. Really just a sandwich shop, but the hot pulled pork sandwiches with slaw and other sides, plus some grilled plates and the chance to buy well prepared meats for take out gives folks in a hurry a good place to do lunch. Easy... More

Chamber luncheon with new acquaintances. Food was excellent. Atmosphere, not so much. But I didn't go for the atmosphere, I went for the food and company.

We were in Chico for a short weekend trip and ate here two days. Great food and value especially after eating at 5th Street Steakhouse!

I tried this place as a catering event. But tried at actual Kinders. I tried the beef baked potato. Has cheese, sour cream, butter, then bbq beef on top of that. It's all in one meal. Pretty good, my problem is I spent a lot of time in texas, and Memphis and st louis, so can't say it's best I've... More
