Voted “Best Ribs Sauce” at the Rock’n Ribfest; California Dreaming serves up hearty, much-loved American classics. Start with Barbecue Chicken Nachos to curb your cravings; then slow-cooked Prime Rib, “fall-off-the-bone” baby back ribs or Knob Hill Chicken – a giant marinated chicken breast topped with ham and cheese. Offering private party dining options for catering and large party carry-out; seasonal patio dining; late night bar bites and accessibility for groups any size. California Dreaming actively supports the community, with a focus on area schools.
