Santa Maria Style Barbeque

Visiting the Santa Maria Valley is a feast for the senses. Cruise down Broadway on any weekend, and the mouth-watering smell of barbecue will greet you. Barbecue is the authentic taste experience of Santa Maria and a major California attraction. This sumptuous feast of barbecued sirloin, salsa, pinquito beans, toasted French bread, and green salad has been called by Sunset Magazine the "best barbecue in the world." In fact, Santa Maria is known nationwide as the "Barbecue Capital of the World."
