After living in Santa Maria and then moving back to the east coast, finally getting back to Cali, I wanted some Tri-tip. I searched several reviews and found that Lous served tri-tip plates and sammiches! The place is in a small strip mall and the decor is nothing special at best, we actually almost left because it looked closed. The place was empty when were were there, but I'm not sure why - the food was pretty good. The pinquito beans were the best thing on the plate, the garlic bread was ok, and the tri-tip was decent, but kinda lacked the full Santa Maria Style BBQ Fire Flavor but I guess I'll never get SM style tri-tip outside of SM. My friend had the gumbo - he was sweating bullets after a few bites, but he likes hot stuff like that.
