“A must try.”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

The food is tasty and the staff are friendly. Try the pulled pork sandwich if you're not sure what to order off of their huge menu. If you don't like pork, then try the tri-tip sandwich, it is very, very good and very much a Santa Maria tradition.

Awsome service, owner is on site, working the counter. Extremely hospitable. A mixture of amazing Mexican food and BBQ. Right next to the Santa Maria Brewery, drink amazing beer and order food, what more could you ask for?

“Great stop along the 101”
Reviewed October 29, 2011

Great little hole in the wall restaurant (not a deli) where the 101 and 166 meet. The owner is always friendly and appreciative to his patrons. They are known for their pulled pork sandwiches. Chicken tacos and burritos can be a bit dry. However, Rancho Nipomo offers a lot of tasty foods aside from chicken. Great homemade salsas and sweet potato fries! Go next door to the Santa Maria Brewery for some locally brewed beers (and tons of dust at the tiny, nostalgic bar).
