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.
Our server, Taylor did a great job! Very knowledgeable about the menu, and took great care of us. Food was great, although Brisket was served lukewarm - was not expecting that.
Our server was excellent. She had great knowledge of the menu and had an excellent, warm, approach to the dining guests.
Good food, service was helpful. Clean dining room.
Seats were a little close to other patrons, I felt like we were dining with the table next to us. Beer was overpriced. But decent local brew selections.
Food was REALLY BAD. Ribs were so tough I only ate one....I assume the rest went in the garbage. Husband also had the ribs and fought his way thru a few of them......lots of chewing. We both ordered regular fries which were VERY spicy. The coleslaw was absolutely tasteless. Best thing about the dining experience was the Moscow Mule and it was just average.
We had redeemed 2000 points for a $10 card to use here but our waitress said she had never seen one and couldn't figure out what to do with it. We asked for the mgr who said she couldn't get the card to go though and refused to honor it. Open Table had provided instructions but to no avail.
I contacted Open Table the next day and a very helpful representative was able to give our points back. Thank you Open Table!
Place was amazing! Only draw back was heavy draft causing it to make food and table very cold.
As seen on t.v. This restaurant was spotlighted on Guy's Big Project. Though, no one there could tell us what was ordered on air. 😔😔 Perhaps when a restaurant is spotlighted & advertised it on their own facebook page that they were going to be on the show, all the employees should know what was ordered & be able to talk about the segment. But, that certainly doesn't take away from the yummy food. Had the lunch special of shredded brisket (perfectly prepared) with the south (Carolina??) sauce. Served with fries (almost steak fry size, seasoned) & a corn muffin with awesome flavored butter. I bought a small ordered to take home, too. The ranch dressing wasn't too my taste, it's their own recipe & had vinegar added. Just was an odd taste to me & my lunch mate. Price was certainly doable. The lunch special was under $10 (included soda/tea). Virtually the same meal not on lunch special was about $15 (no drink). Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of my lunch.
Everything here was awesome, the food was great, literally the best burger i've had throughout my life and the waiter was awesome, nice, and knowledgeable on all the foods the restaurant has.
We were in there when it wasn't very busy but the waitress was very helpful. We received our food quickly and everyone enjoyed their meal.
The ribs and tri-tip were very good but the side dishes were about 2 star
Was actually not impressed. I had tri tip and jerk chicken with fries. The fries could have been very good but were completely coated in way too much salt and pepper. So that ruined them. Tri tip was ok. Jerk chicken was good
My wife had pulled pork which she enjoyed.
Waitress was friendly but I went too long between soda refills
Ribs are the best in town. Took the family for brother's birthday and ordered the pitmaster platter. Plenty of food for 3 big guys and myself with leftovers.
I enjoyed my experience there. My food was perfect and my Wife also enjoyed her meal. I would definitely go back.
A friend had a birthday and loves ribs so we thought we would try Fahrinheit 250. We went on a Wednesday at 5:00PM and it was very quiet - which we like. Dinner was more than reasonable for ribs. I found the flavor of the ribs outsanding but had to peel off the salty top layer. I am a salt lover but it was a bit much and took away from the flavor of the meat. But all else was bery good. I would go back.
The best BBQ I have ever had. Wonderfully lovely!!
I went to the FH 250 everyday during the recent USATF Track & Field Championships and it was rocking. The food was great and the beer was cold. The place was slammed so things took a little longer than normal. Completely understand. This is a very solid BBQ spot, one of the best in the Sacramento area. Although it was SUPER Crowded the Staff maintained an positive attitude. Hats off to them!
I liked my pulled pork, coleslaw and corn muffins the smoked beans were blah. They have the BBQ sauces on the table which I prefer to put on sauce after meat is cooked. We went on one of those 109º days and the AC had a hard time keeping up got a little warm in there. Unfortunately only 1 offering for red wine and it was just OK. They had many beers available I wish I liked beer.
We took my husband for Fathers Day. He was disappointed because the chicken was burned on one side. He asked if he could get another piece that was not black, but was told that that is the way that they cook it and that he could choose another meat instead. I was a little irritated that they would not try to please him with another piece of chicken. I understand that the skin is charred to some extent, but it was black on the bottom and obviously burned and tasted like it. Our server was very gracious though and my husband just accepted another choice of meat. Because not even a manager came to apologize, explain or even look at the meat and our simple request was not honored, we will not return, nor will we recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Disappointing because menu sounded so good but was not. Don't know if it was because it was Fathers Day but food seemed as if it had been prepared hours before and barely heated.
This restaurant was not really ready for our reservation. But they sat us quickly. They were clearly understaffed for Father's day.
We have been eating here since they first opened, but never again. The brisket that three of us had was extremely dry, impossible to cut and tasteless. When we mentioned this to our server, her response was "I know, I hate when that happens. Why don't you add some sauce to it?" Inedible food and poor service, hate this has happened to somewhere we used to frequent regularly.
My husband and I were visiting the Sacramento area for the day - celebrating our wedding anniversary. We shopped at the Arden Mall, then had a late lunch/early dinner before our late afternoon movie. The food at Fahrenheit 250 was great! The staff was very friendly, and attentive, but not over bearing. Other couples were there, and a soccer team with little girls, and small toddlers running around. It was all good. My husband and I will be going back, hopefully with our family members.
The sides mac/cheese and beans lacked seasoning. Meat ok, tritip a bit dry, pulled pork ok They were out of two things, chicken and another meat. It was a quiet Sunday early evening. Service was good. We got the family meal for 4-5 and size of the of servings was right on. Too bad as I wanted to like this place. There is a great assortment of sauces that are good. Tried the vinegar based and bbq sauce were good.
We loved Fahrenheit 250 when it first opened. The food quality seems to have declined over the last couple of years. When we arrived, they let us know before we were seated that they only had brisket, sausage and pulled pork available. They were out of all the other meats. We appreciated them letting us know ahead of time, so we could choose to go elsewhere. The food was just ok. The service was good. They always have a good selection of beers.
Arrived and it wasn't too busy for mother's day. Hostess was having a rough day and letting it show. We were seated and placed our order and waited close to 30 mn for our food which we were told was pre-cooked? Had to wait for drink refills while waitress was chatting with other workers in the back. It wasn't unpleasant just not the best service I've had. Food was decent so might go back and give them another shot.
The variety was good. It was good food, the ribs were a little dry but the fried green tomatoes were delicious. I'd go back.
I booked Fahrenheit 250 for a Mother's Day BRUNCH (listed on the Open Table description) but, alas, they do NOT serve brunch!! Very disappointing to find out they do not serve brunch, but we had lunch instead and their food is absolutely amazing!! GREAT barbeque food and excellent service and we sat outside which was very nice for my grandson who is almost 2 years old. Will try their happy hour, for sure!!
Fahrenheit 250 is consistently good with regard to service and the quality of food and drinks. The BBQ choices are well made and served. Our server was brand new and very friendly. She gave us excellent service for someone who is just starting out. We have enjoyed this restaurant previously and will certainly be back.
Went for a family meal and had a great time. Surprising - outside looks a bit like a dive on Folsom, but inside is fun and has lots of personality. Service was impeccable. All five meals were delicious and plentiful. Great BBQ and beer casual dining.
I dined with two colleagues. I ordered the brisket and meatloaf. The brisket was totally dry (seemed like it was days old and reheated) and without any flavor, the meatloaf looked like it had been sliced then fried to black in a skillet. It was also devoid of flavor. The fries were OK. I ordered a glass of wine and it was maybe 4 ozs. When I complained they added an ounce. One colleague ordered a pulled pork sandwich with melted cheese. It came out cold and the cheese was not melted at all. The other ordered a brisket sandwich which was served lukewarm. All in all it was a very disappointing meal. We also had asked to be seated in one of the many open booths but were told they had to keep them open in case larger parties came in. No one did and now we know why.
I am from NC, and I travel a lot, and I like BBQ-all kinds- pork and beef barbecue and I'm fond of chicken too. It can be sliced, pulled, or chopped. I tend to prefer sliced beef and pulled pork and chicken on tbe bone with skin intact. The menu gave all of these options.
We heard about this place and we had looked forward to going there .
The ambiance was good .
My CA friends raved at the food but my wife and I found it uninspired at almost every level.
It wasn't bad, it just wasn't good.
The service was slow. Several mistakes were made with the drinks but they were quickly fixed to our satisfaction. The smoked beans had no flavor the and no sweetness to them. I hate green beans they were very good my wife had coleslaw and it was okay . The corn bread was quite good.
I ordered the fatty brisket and mine was quite good. There was a nice smoke ring and very good bark developed. The fat level was optimal.
The rest of the party had the lean brisket and it was extremely dry and tough.
My ribs tasted bland and the texture was almost mushy. There was no evidence that they had ever been kissed by flames. They used a dry rub that had good and not overpowering flavors, and I appreciated that the ribs were not slathered in sauce
My impression was that the food might have been cooked in a grill and smoke rings around the brisket evidenced a smoker, but I think the meat had been cooked earlier and held on a warming table.
The sauces were good though they had four (NC vinegar based, a spicy and non-spicy KC style and a mustard based). All four were quite good and the KC slicy and NC combined with the beans made them pretty awesome.
This is far from a great rating, but I would go back.
I enjoyed the company I was with, the food wasn't bad, there was lots of space, the seating was comfortable and the noise level, in spite of being crowded, was low enough to have comfortable conversations
We found the brisket and tri-tip quite dry and the chicken and pork a bit too spicey for our taste. The best thing on the menu was the ribs--some of the best we've had anywhere. However, one of us got rather sick afterwards. We don't know if that is related to the food or not, but it looked to be. On the other hand, the other three seemed fine, so who knows? If we had a huge hankering for ribs some of us would definitely return. But not the one who got sick.
Oh, btw, the ginger beer they serve will knock your socks off. Sensational.
The waitress was very nice, attentive and the best thing Fahrenheit had to offer. When a BBQ restaurant at noon has no ribs or tri tip, well nuff said. The brisket was well, crappy. Came in for a birthday with a cake and again the waitress was accommodating and pleasant. Everything else well CRAP!
We were out for valentines night and decided to give this restaurant a try. We made reservations and were seated quickly. The menu is very traditional BBQ choices and I was looking forward to the meal. I asked the waitress a question about the chicken that came in the multi meat meals. I wanted to know what parts of the chicken do you get. She really couldn't answer my question. I asked her if it was breast or thighs and i was told it was just wings but she wasn't totally positive. So after that I settle for the moist brisket and the smoke meatloaf.
When I received my food it didn't look like brisket to me. Now I have traveled around the US and have tried a lot of BBQ joints. I go to Texas just to have the beef brisket. What I was served was far from the tender beef brisket that I have had elsewhere. This was tough and I had to cut it with a knife. I asked the waitress about it and she said I ordered the most tender of the brisket they offered. My wife had order the TRITIP and it was more tender then my brisket. The meatloaf was OK but I really wanted some good brisket. I have to say the cut of meat did not seem like brisket at all. I am not sure if I caught them on a bad night being a busy valentines day.
Overall I was disappointed by the food and the lack of knowledge by the waitress on what food is being prepared.
First time here and I will definitely be going back. The meats were great but my blackened chicken breast was exceptional. The spices had heat without burning the mouth. Service was arlttentive despite how busy it was. Keep an eye out for some unique decor.
We went to Fahrenheit 250 for a BBQ lunch, based upon the generally favorable reviews we read. We must have gone on a bad day, because the food we had didn't match the reviews. The ribs were OK, not great, but the brisket and tri-tip were dry and had little taste. The French fries were hot, but not the meats. Service was friendly but the table was not clean. This restaurant is definitely not comparable to the great BBQ places in Texas .
