Good food for once in a while. High prices. People are friendly and place is clean and quiet. Try at least once.

If you're traveling I-10 between Phoenix and Los Angeles, skip the Golden Arches next door and try the great BBQ at Rebel's. The service was friendly and quick. My husband had the brisket which he enjoyed. I had the Cuban sandwich, made with smoked pork,...More
