When a group of my students called to invite us for lunch at Sandra Dee's Bar-B-Que & Seafood, they didn't have to twist our arms. We literally jumped at the chance, especially knowing of Sandra Dee's reputation for offering hearty portions of Southern Soul food that's not only good, but originates from recipes that have either been created by Sandra Dee herself or have been handed down through the generations. Mouth-watering selections include their gator po' boy, beef tri tips, full or half slabs of pork ribs, and their southern seasoned fried oysters, catfish filets, and fresh frog legs. And if that wasn't enough, there are side dishes to pepper your plate as well. Choices like hush puppies, red beans and rice, spicy collard greens, and mac-n-cheese. When all was said and done, there was nothing left of our appetites.
Located in downtown Sacramento on the corner of 15th and F Streets, Sandra Dee's Bar-B-Que & Seafood began as a small catering business that was run out of a garage. As word-of-mouth grew, so too did the business. Before too long, Sandra Dee and her husband, Jeffrey, expanded their operation to what it is known today. Now, with their children, they follow two simple rules: greet each customer like family and serve food that will always leave them smiling. Mission accomplished!
