My family took me here for my birthday because they knew I wanted a ribeye steak and we didn't want to leave the city (Santa Maria). In our case it would have been better to drive the extra miles to get better service. We had a coupon and so we went. It took nearly 40 minutes for our meal to... More

Santa Maria is well known for its unique BBQ tradition. Sadly, these cooks screw it up by soaking meat in bourbon. Sickening. A dirty place.

Superb ribs, trip tip, salad, dinner rolls, chili, sweet potato with butter and cinnamon. Absolute heaven. This past time I ordered dinner by cell phone and arrived within ten minutes of closing by car to assure that I would not be told that the kitchen was closed. Highly recommended. It's worth a visit unless you are peanut allergic. Shells and... More

Food is good, and they have a sportsbook in the bar, so horse lovers can bet on their favorite nags..............

Normally I love this chain, but this one in Santa Maria is the worse one I have ever been to. It was practically empty on this Wednesday night at around 5:30-6:30 PM. The service was poor too. My husband ordered a top Sirloin with beans and corn on the cob. The corn was mushy, the beans were too soft and... More

The menu for Roadhouse has improved over the years by leaps and bounds and now has much more to choose from on their menu. The atmosphere has always been cute but the lack of choices before made us think twice before going. Now they've added a lot of good choices so it's becoming one of our standby restaurants in town.

Service was worst ever! Seated at 7:45 order taken waiter disappeared. Had to ask another server for assistance. 2 of the 3 dinners ordered were served at 8:25 last meal 5 minutes later. Chicken breast overcooked & shrimp raw. Terrible overall.
