I really didn't want to rate this restaurant because I don't want it to get over crowded so I'm really doing it for the owner and the food. The owner is a super guy and the food is AWESOME. They have the BEST Chili Verde and Pulled Pork I have ever had. This is a Must Eat At restaurant. Go... More

Pretty much rocks! The pork ribs are super yum. Homemade BBQ sauce should come with a straw, it's so good. The service is great and prices are reasonable.

The food was great! The people were super friendly. Their was a mix up with my order & they were awesome about it. I didn't expect what they did for me at all.

I ride with the American Legion Riders and we do a weekly Wednesday Lunch Ride. We decided to try Rancho Nipomo, I hadn't been there for a while. Service and food were awesome. My favorite is their pulled pork. We will go back!

Thank you TripAdvisor fans for pointing me to this place. What a delight. I'm certain this was the best hamburger I've ever had. Perfectly cooked and seasoned, juicy and served on a very fresh bun. Under $4, but i could not have eaten any more. I'm not a big BBQ eater so this was a great alternative. There was a... More

Stopped by on the way between LA and Monterey. Perfect lunch stop. Wonderful Santa Maria Tri Tip and just a perfect meal. The sides were all done fresh and just right. Fresh rolls, fresh made slaw, fresh salsas. Everything was great. But the best part of an already excellent meal was the pulled pork. Smoked with the same red oak... More

Everyone was smiling, amd eating and having a great Sunday afternoon at this sweet place. I love the simple and tasty food. There is... More

This is where to find the best BBQ on the Central Coast!!! High Recommendations! This was not my first trip to Rancho Nipomo BBQ, and won't be the last. This place is a little off the beaten path, but once you find it you'll never forget where it is. I ordered 2 BBQ Briskit Sandwiches, Fries, Onion Rings, 2 soft... More

I've visited the Central Coast many times via Hwy 166, but didn't know this place existed. If you are coming from Bakersfield on Hwy 166, when it meets Hwy 101, continue westward under 101 for a block, and on the right, there it is! If you are traveling on Hwy 101, take the 166 East off-ramp. They could really use... More
