About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Slow-smoking is our craft & we believe in using the high-quality meats and local ingredients throughout our menu. We BBQ low and slow at a constant 250 degrees using locally-sourced seasoned oak and fruit woods.

Every item on our menu is made from scratch, from our four unique barbecue sauces to dip your ‘que in, to our mouth watering sides and fresh-squeezed lemonade. Nothing goes better with barbecue than a nice cold beer and our bar features 13 local-craft beers on tap and approachable cocktails featuring fresh ingredients and house-infused liquors.

Due to the long hours it takes to create our BBQ please keep in mind we occasionally run out of certain BBQ meats.

I was a little concerned when we first got there. Because there were no other customers it made me a little worried about the food. But it just must’ve been a slow time, because the food was fantastic service was great and we had a wonderful evening there.

Awesome bbq. Unfortunately moved to Roseville. It was a hidden gem with great craft beer. Will most likely not travel to Roseville to eat there.

I made a reservation for my date night the evening I went prior to being seated I waited for about 5-7 minutes for someone to acknowledge me when they weren’t that busy nor did someone say someone would be with me soon or anything they sorta acted like I wasnt there. The meat is great, My fries were horrible i ordered dirty fries and received crunchy undercooked potatoes then i asked for them to be remade and crispy so they were be cooked and they were burnt the made a sound as i tapped them on my plate I was very disappointed. My girlfriend received burnt cornbread muffins. I would return for ribs to go and nothing more.

Didn’t have any ribs, meatloaf or brisket available. I ordered a burger and it came out completely undercooked. Our server was very sweet and polite. I was really hoping I would have a good first experience here but I will most likely never go back.

We had 4 people. 3 outta of 4 plates were wonderful. The ribs and brisket were amazing. And the lemonade was the best lemonade ive ever had.
My brother ordered the philly cheese steak with tri-tip and unfortunately was highly disappointed. The tri-tip was tough and flavorless and even though Cheese is right in the title, there was no cheese. We all agreed we would come back minus the cheese steak.

Food arrived barely warm and had to be sent back to the kitchen. Side portions were small. Seasonal pie was the dessert and they didn’t have any. Ate on a weekday at five pm, there was little crowds and plenty of time for kitchen to prepare food properly. Meat had good flavor despite temperatures. Staff very friendly.

This restaurant has a great variety of meat and sides. They have a full bar with many beer choices and bourbon drinks in addition to the normal cocktails. I was a little disappointed this time in that I thought the ribs were a little on the fatty side which has not been the case in the past. However, I would go back -

The meats were okay but the sides were pretty sad. I never had a macaroni and cheese that I didn't like and it was starchy and bland - likewise for the "cheesy" grits.

Visited with a group of 7 for dinner on Saturday night. Delicious barbecue! Everyone ordered combo platters, and between all of us, we tried the brisket (lean and fatty), tri-tip, ribs, meatloaf and jerk chicken. All but the chicken, we'd order again in a heart beat. Although I enjoyed the decadence of the fatty brisket, the grease was a bit much after awhile. Enjoyed the sides (mac & cheese, garlic green beans, and chili) but wished everything was evenly hot. Seemed like the sides sat and waited while other parts were plated. Service was great though.

We ran over to get a quick dinner between sporting events at Sac State. The exterior was a bit off-putting - just not sure how the food would be (I know, don’t judge a book by its cover!!!). Wow - the homemade chips and smoked salmon dip were a fantastic start (be prepared to wait for the homemade part, but worth it!). The tri tip “Blues” salad was absolutely loaded with awesomeness - paleo people will love it, and do NOT ask for double protein! No need - this salad is totally perfect from start to finish with flavors that will surprise and delight you.

We've had pretty good experiences at Fahrenheit 250, but this wasn't one of them. There was one server handling both the bar (including making drinks) and the seating all around the bar, so service was very slow. We ordered a combination dinner that was supposed to include brisket, but the brisket was super overdone and shredded, to the point some of it was closer to jerky than brisket. I was sad because this is one of the closer and better BBQ spots to our home and we were pretty disappointed.

Great value. Brisket wasn't the greatest. It was over shredded and tossed in bbq sauce. Chicken was great. The sweet tea tasted like it been sitting out too long. Our waitress was great.

We were hoping that we would find a decent BBQ restaurant but felt Farenheit 250 was lacking in various ways:
- Service was slow even though there were not many people there on a week night;
- Food was on the bland side, particularly the ribs (which were on the dry side and tasted as if they had been cooked earlier and sitting awhile; better with BBQ sauce added) and potato salad (cole slaw was good though);
- Hamburger was tasty but fell apart when trying to eat it.

My husband and I have been eating at this restaurant for a while now. The food and service is
consistently excellent. We recently had a family gathering there and everyone loved their food; the ribs fell off the bone; the tri tip melted in your mouth; the brisket was moist and tasty; and the salads were very fresh. The side dishes are awesome, especially the garlic fries. There's something for everyone! We truly love Fahrenheit and plan to make this our usual family gathering place for dinner. My husband and I are regulars for weekday lunch. Love it!

Great place for good BBQ! The place had a relaxed feel to it. The food was amazing and not swimming in BBQ sauce. Each table had a variety of sauces so you can dress your own which was great. They have out door seating which we did not have because it was to cold but during warmer weather it would be a great spot to be seated. This will be the only BBQ joint my family will be going to!

We have eaten here before, mainly for lunch, This dinner was THE WORST EVER! Our table of 8 all ordered the rib plates. The other diners plates did not look too bad, except one other dish had a charcoal piece of meat. Our platter, however, was almost all charcoal, with two pieces totally inedible and those we had replaced with two very nice ribs. We should have refused the whole platter, but we were too nice and ate the rest of the 11 not 12 we were supposed to get.

The wings were different but good. The Philly steak sandwich could have been a little larger in size. Lastly, fewer nitro beers might have created a better flavor profile. A second visit during a time not as busy as Friday night should be attempted.

Our food came out fast but it was cold. We asked to warm it up and they told us for health reasons they couldn't send it back to the kitchen. What! They brought us extra dirty fries , which were good, because ours was cold and then charged us for it! The chicken and ribs were chewy( overcooked) but the brisket was delicious. They didn't have decaf coffee, I had to ask for cornbread, drinks and silverware which we ordered. The waiter was super nice just felt like he was unprepared. I made this reservation a week in advance for my son's 16th birthday. I was disappointed!

Took the family (2 adults, 3 teens) here for Valentines dinner, our first time eating here. Food was really good! Brisket chili was ridiculously spicy, which was sad for me because I love chili but it was too spicy for me to enjoy. My husband did eat his, but also said it was a bit too spicy for his liking. On the plus side, it was chocked full of yummy brisket. Standouts were ribs, pulled pork, dirty fries, potato salad and cornbread. Looking forward to our next visit and trying some of the cocktails on their bar menu. Inside is nicely decorated in a rustic theme. Plenty of parking, even on a holiday. Total check for 5 with soft drinks was $103 plus tip & we brought home enough food for lunch tomorrow for two people. Not too shabby!

The meat was very good, and their unique barbeque sauces were delicious. The green beans and mac and cheese, however, were very salty. We had enough to eat, but I expected to get a bit more for the amount paid. Overall, happy with the experience.
