Sunset Magazine recommends that while you're in El Dorado County you Eat Good Barbecue

Sunset, June, 2002 -- EL DORADO After a day on the American River, veteran whitewater rafters head to the Gold Country's Poor Red's BAR-B-Q, an 1850s Wells Fargo stage stop serving mesquite-grilled ribs, chicken, and steak. The wait can be long, but the regulars know to hit the bar for an icy Gold Cadillac, the creamy Galliano concoction so popular that Poor Red's uses more of the liqueur than anyplace in the world. 6221 Pleasant Valley Rd.; (530) 622-2901.
