Poor Red’s BBQ


Poor-Reds BBQ El Dorado County

Poor Red’s is renowned for its award-winning barbecue and for the world-famous cocktail they invented called the Golden Cadillac.

The creation of the Golden Cadillac is legendary in El Dorado. In 1952, a newly engaged couple came to Poor Red’s to celebrate their engagement. They asked bartender Frank Klein to create their own special cocktail that would match their newly purchased gold-colored Cadillac. The bartender served the drink in a champagne coupe glass to signify it’s celebratory nature meant for her and a sidecar glass for him. When you order one Golden Cadillac, you get two glasses.

The place is a destination for a Golden Cadillac experience, and it sells thousands of drinks. Try one for yourself and see what all the fuss is about. Enjoy!
