Hitching Post

3325 Point Sal Rd., Casmalia, CA - (805) 937-6151
Posted By Rueben Olivas on 4/3/2011 1:09:00 AM
I was raised in the Santa Maria area. My parents are from Casmalia, CA, home of the original Hitching Post. I know this restaurant well. It is my all-time favorite.

They have the best rib eye and T-bone steaks I have ever eaten and their BBQ'd artichokes are incredibly delicious. The only way that I can describe the food is that it is pure Nirvana. There really is no way to truly describe the taste. You just have to put some in your mouth and experience it for yourself. Once you do, you will never forget it.

I live on Guam now, but the Hawaiians have a saying when food is truly amazing: "It's going to broke your mouth." That is the best way to describe the food at the Hitching Post I, in Casmalia.

California is not generally thought of as a great place to eat steak or barbecue. The Hitching Post proves otherwise.

This hundred-year-old building has been a happy end of the trail for hungry meat-eaters since the 1950s.

Santa Maria is the heart of serious barbecue country! In town, service organizations stage weekend cookfests along the streets where the menu is a downsized version of what's served at The Hitching Post. In this case, the cooking and serving is being done from a Lions Club bus.
