Barbecue
Smoked low and slow at 250 degrees, we craft authentic style BBQ in Roseville, California.

Our Custom Klose BBQ Pit (The Beast) burns only locally seasoned oak and fruit woods to impart the perfect smoke across our brisket, ribs, pulled pork and more. We respect our guests and our craft, which is why we believe in using the freshest and highest-quality meats and locally sourced ingredients we can get our hands-on. Our meats are slow-smoked daily and every item on our menu is made from scratch—from our four unique barbecue sauces to dip your ‘que in, to our fresh-squeezed lemonade.

Overall, our dining experience last night was great. My husband's chicken was a tad on the "blackened" side but he said the great flavor made up for a bit of dryness. Both of us requested extra crispy fries and got them that way (in other words - perfect!) My Fahrenheit 250 salad (pulled pork) was great as usual and our server (Sofia) was a delight. We've recommended Fahrenheit 250 to several of our friends and will continue to do so. The only caveat being we will continue to give everyone a heads up that the staff doesn't follow state Covid-19 guidance regarding mask wearing. We're okay with that because we're vaccinated and boosted and we both wear masks but other people might not be.

This is a wonderful BBQ restaurant. We ordered the meat meal which offered a variety of types such as chicken, ribs. Sausage and pork. The meats were very tender and tasty. We had a variety of sides including chips, sweet potato fries and macaroni and cheese. All were delicious. The potato salad wasn’t the best, it tasted like it was missing something. bread came with the meal and I asked for butter. I was delighted they had honey butter. The service was excellent and cocktails well made.

GPS was wrong and sent us the opposite direction of where to be. It’s across from the auto mall. We suggested extra signage be put out as it would bring more traffic. Now that we know where to go we will be back!

This is our second time to F250 and certainly won’t be our last. The food is incredibly yummy - the meats are so tender you don’t even need a knife! The service is fantastic!

I went on a Tuesday night at around 6:30pm and the place was practically empty. The waitress was attentive and did a great job. The food was unfortunately lacking. I thing was bad, but it was all hot and the pulled pork seemed like it had been sitting uncovered for a while. It had a slight “rind” to it. The brisket was good, not a very strong smoke flavor but was good none the less. Although there wasn’t one big reason why I didn’t care for this place, it just was underwhelming. I’d rather go to another bbq place. Honestly dickies bbq is comparable in taste (not a good thing).

We ordered the 3 combo meal selecting sliced brisket, ribs, and burnt ends. The brisket was excellent. The ribs were fair, but slightly on the over dry side. They were fall off the bone, not bite off the bone. The burnt ends were terrible. Extremely dry, like blocks of dry jerky. I do not recommend the ribs or burnt ends. This was our first time and we will not be returning.

We have tried a lot of different BBQ places here in the Sacramento area and think that we may have finally found the right place for a fair price. The food was excellent and in very large portions. Really liked the choice of 4 different BBQ sauces and the meat was tasty. Our server was extremely nice! Highly recommend this place...

They messed up our reservation somehow and we had to wait ten minutes to be seated. Most of the food that came out was lukewarm to cold. I ordered a two meat platter to include ribs and they were so tough I couldn’t cut them.

Arrived early to reservation, was seated quickly and greeted by a friendly server. Got drinks, then she returned to take our order.
They were out of cornbread, ribs, and burnt ends. 3 of the four things I went for. I ordered nothing and my partner ordered the 45 dollar combo. It was easily more than enough food for 4. She enjoyed it.
I recommend that you call ahead and ask if they have food. I understand that when they are out they are out, but on a Saturday they should make extra.

Food not very tasty. Brisket super smoky and a bit dry...maybe all smoked meat is this way...?
Fries were the only good side...potato salad and mac fairly tasteless

Horrible customer service, not due to the lack of employees or the restaurant being busy, but from overall lack of effort and customer service skills. No smiles, greeting, welcome in, etc.. it started with the Manager who was the greeter and host. I think he was more concerned about looking good in his hat than positively interacting with his guests.
Went to the bar before our reservation and had a cocktail, The bartender wasn’t super attentive, but we did get our drinks timely once he took our order. Again, the bar was not busy.
Dinner was very disappointing. They sat our party of 4 at a high top table near the bar, which was fine; however, the servers were confused on who was supposed to serve our table, so we sat there for 15 before we finally went and flagged a server down. They apologized, but true lack of empathy.
Food tasted fine for the most part, although one person’s dinner was cold, so it had to be sent back.
Overall poor experience and won’t go back!
The restaurant overall is in a good location and it’s a nice looking restaurant with beautiful decor and ambience. It has potential to be successful if it were managed better and the employee, including the arrogant manager wearing the hat, all were better trained, and cared more about providing exceptional customer service.

For starters, we ordered (wife) Pull Pork that was noting but fat and no flavor, I order brisket that was taste less and fatty, and both ordered seasonal vegies and were served cream corn, disgusting. My mashed potatos tasted like instant and were cold, we were supposed to receive bread that never came. Neighter one of us ate our meals and the server didn't ask if anything was wrong when we said we're done with full plates.The server didn,t know the wines or beers available as we had to make several choices to find one instock. The place was empty and it was dinner hour. Needless to say we shall not return and I give them maybe six more months before closing..

Didn’t know Fahrenheit 250 existed. Got a flier in the mail and tried it out. It’s kind of off the beat and hidden from street traffic. The food was good and we will go back.

Food was ok presentation needs work. It looked like it was just plopped on our plate. Three of our party asked for the slaw to be put on the side 1 was served on the meat and bun two orders did not get the slaw as requested. Someone was not reading or paying attention to the order that was sent in by our server. We were surprised none of the wait staff wore masks. Other restaurants in our area seem to require employees to wear masks.
