Generous portions. sauces were excellent. Order the spicy sauce, lots of flavor, not much heat. Every dish was delicious. All the sides were excellent homemade. Everyone at the table had a different... More

Our niece told us about this place and how great the chicken was so we tried it. As they say "no account for taste". I had the chicken & rib combo, wife had the catfish sandwich . Ribs where cooked nice, tender, moist the dry rub was OK, the BBQ sauce was not very good. The chicken was good but... More

I like everything here! It's hard to order here because everything is fresh and delicious. The plates are so packed that I have to skip dessert.

Have been going here for years. The ribs are good enough to eat without any sauce which tells you how good they are. The fried chicken is fantastic and the tri-tip is also very good.

A few weeks ago, 4 of us decided to go to House of Chicken and Ribs after a school performance near by. We looked on the website and saw that they closed at 8:30. We arrived at 8:02 and were told they would not seat us but we could get food to go. We were shocked and mentioned that the... More

Not sure what happened to the reviewers below but I've been here dozens of times and it's the best BBQ I've ever had. Every time I travel I try a local BBQ joint and have found some good ones, but none even come close to House of Chicken & Ribs. The tri-tip, prawns, and pork ribs are simply amazing! Done... More

Maybe the worst BBQ in the Sacramento area. I ordered 2 plates to go. A three item mini sampler with sausage, pork ribs, tri tip, okra, collard greens and beans. The other plate was the half order of fried chicken with Mac & cheese and coleslaw. The sausage, pork and tri tip may have been good but they drown everything... More
