“Great Takeout”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

In truth, we have never eaten in. However, we have used Rattler's take out for numerous home meals and parties; they always deliver.

My kids love their tri-tip and I like their chicken. I think my son could make a day's meals out of only their garlic rolls! Peanut coleslaw is a favorite as well, as are mashed potatoes and beans.

If you order for take out, call ahead -- they tend to get busy at dinner time. Very helpful staff.

“We loved the food!”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Both the burgers and BBQ were excellent with good options for everyone in our group. The salad bar was an extra bonus. We'll definitely come back if we're in this area again! Highly recommended!

“Great BBQ with good atmosphere”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

If you want good local BBQ this is the place. Really good drink selection and bar service. The rolls with a little Rattlers BBQ sauce on the side is my favorite. Our waiter was friendly and the food came out quick. The salad bar has a good selection of fresh vegetables. I will definitely go back.

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

Every time we visit LA we never miss a trip to Rattlers. If you like garlic their soft white warm garlic bread rolls are to die for! You can look for specials night - on steaks or ribs. They also do the unlimited salad bar and the most wonderful Santa Clarita Iced Tea cocktail. I would 100% recommend this.

“Mediocre”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

We were seated within ten minutes after arriving on a busy Saturday night. Moments later our server arrived and brought water. The yummy, soft butter and garlic rolls (4) were delayed a few minutes as they finished baking.

We both ordered tri tip. Spouse chose the salad bar; I elected two sides (BBQ beans and creamy cole slaw). A potato is not included but can be ordered in place of a side or the salad bar. I saw several diners returning to their seats with a big plate piled high with salad fixings, spouse included.

Thr tri tip was 1 1/2" thick and cooked perfectly, and lightly bathed in a BBQ sauce. Both of us ate every bit of it.

On the downside the beans appeared to come from a can. They, along with the regular and spicy BBQ sauces, were too sweet and syrupy. Neither they nor the meat had any smoke flavor. The cole slaw was ordinary.
