I have driven past this place for many years without stopping but today I decided to bite the bullet! I am very happy I stopped. A coworker & I both had the "Baja Burger". This burger was actually muy caliente. The patty consisted of a mix of ground beef & chorizo with an addition of jalapeño, jack cheese & the... More

Good steak sandwiches. The prices are decent, the service is okay. The quality of the meat seems okay too and tastes good. The cook was friendly. The restaurant itself looked okay in the inside, just okay but it's original because it actually is a trolly car.

Had the Blu Pig burger and it was a total do-over. Not greasy at all, huge in size, so large my husband and I shared it. We will be back. 4 stars because the ambiance isn't much, but the food was great. I have already recommend to my friends and family.

The follow that owns the place is friendly; the food is well priced and delicious; and of course, the artichokes are awesome. This is good, manly-man food if you're in the mood for it.

I have had lunch and dinner at this wonderful restaurant. The meals prepared are always a absolute culinary delight... I've even had 2 board meetings in the past and it was nice atmosphere and delicious entrees for us to enjoy... I will be back next week. Jacqueline

Everything in the menu was fantastic. Artichokes appetizer was like butter. The calamari appetizer was arguably the best I had ever eaten. Big pieces. Not the little rings you get other places. The tri tip, sausage, rotisserie chicken was all so tender and juicy. And the bbq sauce was perfect. Don't miss this place!!!

Nothing fancy but the service and food were very good. Had plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day. Very reasonable prices.

I had the grilled skirt steak with Oaxacan mole sauce, cole slaw and grilled vegetables. Delicious and all fresh. My son had the charbroiled tri-tip steak dinner. He enjoyed it very much. Prices are good. Servings are large. Restaurant is very casual. I just moved to the area and this restaurant is near my house. It will be our new... More

Got off the exit on the way to Santa barbara to find somewhere to eat. We stopped here and were very surprised. Pulled pork sandwich for my husband, tritips for me and grilled vegetables for our daughter. It was excellent. We felt like we were at someone's house and had home cooking. The waitress was the sweetest!! Great find.
