Sweet Baby Ray's slow-smokes and cooks savory barbecue comestibles for lunch and dinner. Stuff your socks with wet-wipes and begin with an appetizer of fried calamari ($8.99), served with fresh lemon and house marinara, or skip ahead to a half slab of oxford-blouse-staining baby-back ribs ($14.99 at dinner, $12.99 at lunch). A pulled-pork plate ($12.99 at dinner, $10.99 at lunch) is seasoned in a house-made rub and smoked for up to 12 hours before being hand-pulled and served up with Sweet Baby Ray's signature barbecue sauce for a stomach-grumble-snuffing meatsperience. If meaty isn't your cup of sports drink, order up a plate of smoked tomato rigatoni ($10.99), penne pasta bathed in house marinara and topped with parmesan cheese.

Sweet Baby Ray's feeds the masses' open mouths with a large, family-friendly dining environment and an outdoor patio. A beer and wine list transmutes any base evening into potable gold, and desserts wrap a sweet bow of happiness around the meal.

Valid for dine-in at the Elk Grove location only.
