Great dinner

This place has some of the best ribs and nachos. Great place to take the family. We love sitting in the outside patio. On some nights they have a live band.

The Tri- Tip sandwich is excellent, and the pulled pork sandwiches is another excellent choice, but you definitely get your monies worth for sure.

We read about this place on Yelp after doing a little research on BBQ in Santa Maria. We were looking for a lunch place easy to access from the highway as we headed to Santa Barbara, and the reviews seemed good. At first we thought the GPS had led us astray, as it's right off the highway in what looks... More

Wow, this place really knows how to make good food! Super close to the 101 freeway (at the north end of the Santa Maria River bridge at the Hiway 166 East)…literally two minutes off the road. That said, I would drive MUCH further to eat here! This is a casual dining spot, with both indoor and outdoor tables. There are... More

I have eaten here more times than I can count. Each and every time I try something different. I have yet to be disappointed. I have loved each thing I have ordered. This last time I went I got the super nachos and santa maria style fire. Loved every bite and split both with my wife. I can't tell you... More

We've been to Rancho Nipomo many times. I usually order their pulled pork sandwich (my favorite) or a burger. They have great burgers. They have expanded and made a cantina where you can eat, drink, and listen to music in the space next to the deli with a passageway between. In our most recent visit, I saw the tri-tip enchiladas...

Rancho Nipomo has is a great place to bring your family or to meet friends for a beer. Their food is a mix of traditional mexican and bbq specialties and sandwhiches. They also have local entertainment in their adjacent beer bar on week nights and weekends. Makes for a fun place to meet and hang out with friends.

I am so in love with this restaurant. I NEVER write reviews, but this place ROCKS!!!! The chili verde enchiladas are to die for. The portion of this dish is giant. You could easily share or have lunch for the next day. The staff was exceptional too. I wished I lived closer so I would be able to visit more... More

Good food, large portions, good salsa bar & a free soft drink for Veteran. Who could complain? I'm a regular now!
