The Hitching Post I in Casmalia, CA (or HP 1 as my friends and I like to call it) is a great steak house located literally in the middle of nowhere. In fact it's so remote that by all logic it has no right to exist. I first found out about HP 1 after playing golf at Marshallia Ranch (Vandenberg AFB). We weren't familiar with the area and inquired in the Pro Shop about a good restaurant. Without hesitation they said HP !. This was on a Wednesday afternoon in the summer so we figured there would be no crowd. Wrong! It was full but they put us in an area where we could sit with others w/o reservation. We had to wait until the last seating had been served, around 10:00. But it was worth the wait. Their libations are liberal, their steaks are scrumptious, their wait staff are attentive and helpful and it's just an all around fun place to eat. But remember HP 1 is a steak house and this is Cowboy Country. Don't try to get fancy. HP 1 is in a ram shackled 100+ year old buiding. Casmalia is a town? of about 50 including goats, cats and dogs located at the end of a two lane street.. I golf in that area 3 or 4 times/year and always make it a point to have dinner there. BUT REMEMBER, MAKE A RESERVATION. It's busy winter and summer.
