All it took was one bite and I fell madly in love with Bad to the Bone. This place is a total hidden gem! The place is never too crowded. The ribs come right off the bone. The meats are so tender and juicy. There is absolutely no need for BBQ sauce! I have tried all the meats - tri tip, brisket, pulled pork...and they are all made to perfection every time. My go to sides are the fried okra and sweet potato fries.

Delicious and authentic southern BBQ -ed meats with a ton of scrumptious sides! I have been here several times and the staff is always extremely helpful and friendly. The first time I came here with my family, my dad wanted to know the difference between two types of ribs; we not only got a sample of each but at the end of the dinner we got a slice of pie on the house! I recommend getting the braised brisket - it's the most tender and moist of the meats (some of the others can be dry), while the mac n cheese, beans, and sweet potato fries are the best side dishes. Ask for extra ranch and they give you a bowlful !

We love BTTB so much, they even catered our wedding! Yep, we convinced them to bring their magical food all the way up to LA. I HIGHLY recommend them if you ever need an event catered, the food was perfect and Katie is so easy to work with. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how delicious everything was! Get on their e-mail list and they'll send you coupons... my husband and I just used one the other day and got 20% off our meal.

This is a review for lunch and catering (BTTB catered my wedding in July). This is absolutely the BEST BBQ I have ever eaten in California. Here's a run down of what I've eaten: Brisket, pulled pork, BBQ chicken, ribs, mac n cheese, basked beans (which has brisket in IT!), corn bread, fruit skewers. People still talk about the food from our wedding. You may be thinking BBQ, isn't that too casual for a wedding? Not at all. Marty and Mary (the owners) did an amazing job, they personally handle your big event. There was a slight misunderstanding with the "bar", but everything else was just perfect. Of all of my wedding day vendors, BTTB impressed me the most. I still have dreams about the beans and pulled pork, I only wish I didn't live 400+ miles away, I would eat there every day.
West Sacramento, CA
Some of the best BBQ I've ever had-- and I'm from the South! The baby back ribs were the best. Tri-tip, brisket, pulled pork- yum yum yum. A couple of the items I'm wasn't huge on are the hot links & chicken (I'm not a big fan of legs or thighs). Their sides are also to die for, and from what I understand, are made from scratch daily. DO NOT NEGLECT THE CORN BREAD. They will bring it out with you meal, which may be distracting.. but eat it while it's hot. You will be glad you did; It's fricken delicious. Also, the mac and cheese ranks amoung the best I've ever had ( and I'm white ).. If you've never had it before, get the fried okra. It's awesome, and not very many places here in California serve it. Everything else on the menu is pretty much what you would expect. Get the BBQ platters instead of the sandwiches- because the only good thing on the sandwich will be the BBQ.

I had the best BBQ yesterday at "Bad to the Bone BBQ". The restaurant is decorated in an old western rustic decor. several TV's on the football game, families enjoying their food. As I entered, the my nose was teased with the smell of smoked meats. The smell reminded me of my previous visit, which I enjoyed just as much as today. I had the 3 meat combo plate, tri tip, brisket, ribs, garlic mash potatoes, coleslaw and a cornmeal muffin with a heffen. Their prices are reasonable I will visit again!
