We needed gas and found this great BBQ place across the street from the gas stations. Fun environment and fully engaged servers. Good place. The Tri-tip sandwich is excellent. Fairly close to Santa Maria style flavor. The pulled pork sandwich has a sweet BBQ sauce.

Very nice place to enjoy barbecue ... whether it be beef, pork of chicken. And the wine or brews to go with it make for a great combination of flavors.

We decided on dinner here as we were staying within walking distance. Food was as expected, although massive serves. Decor was quaint and definitely added to the experience. Server was very accommodating.

A strange name but a steak house with lots of character where it seemed that locals go to eat which is always a good recommendation. We choose the two meats option which include ribs which were excellent. The food together with a good selection of...More
