Came here twice. Both times the hostess was as boring as can be and the food was bland-to-bad. The rib tips were burned on the outside like beef jerky. Everyone was crowded into a small area in a large restaurant. Drinks were almost ten bucks for a lunch. I would never go back and regret I ate here ever.

Found it on here and decided to try it. Had the 2 meat combo hot links and tried tip, the hot links were delicious. Had the hot BBQ sauce in hindsight I should have gone for the half and half, it is quite hot. The sides were spicy corn and Mac and cheese both were delicious. A definite recommendation for... More

I loved this local spot. Great homemade flavors and no pretence. The Tri-Tip was amazing...the hot sauce was sweet and tangy. Go hungry because the portions were big and the price was small. Yum!

1st time visiting Sandra Dee's and we were pleasantly surprised as to how tasty the food was. The service was very attentive considering how busy it was that evening. We had a combination plate with pork ribs, beef tri-tip, shrimp and baked beans. The ribs melted in your mouth, the beans were excellent but the beef tri tip was tough.Good... More

We had a group of 20 so made a reservation the day before. Seated us immediately even tho' our group was straggling in later. Happy hour drinks were ordered at the last minute but we were well accommodated. The food was quick and delicious! And portions were generous. A great place to go!!

When the city is partially shut down, where do you go to find a restaurant near your hotel? - the Internet, and thanks to Google I found Sandra Dees just around the corner from where I was staying. I looked at a couple of reviews and went for it. glad I did. I got part way to the restaurant and... More

I have followed the reviews of Sandra Dee's for some time. I try to sample BBQ joints at every city I visit in the U.S.A. Such a diverse expression of cooking pork. My wife and I finally visited to sample the offerings. She ordered the deep fried catfish with hushpuppies and baked beans. I had a half slab of pork... More

On the recommendation of the waitstaff, I had the tri tip special. It was absolutely incredible and I ate about half. Ordered the collard greens and green beans which were overcooked. Place was rocking and for a Thursday night, wall-to-wall people. It seems like anyone would fit into this restaurant and it was absolutely delightful and the mild barbecue sauce... More

Our friends recommended this place to us and we finally had a chance to go....YOU SHOULD TOO! Absolutely everything that came to the table from the fried chicken, red beans and rice, to die for fried greens, and tri tip was awesome! The greens were SO good my husband had to go back to the kitchen to say thank you,... More
