What people say

"On the weekend, don't miss this old-western style staple between Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez for the best tri-tip sandwiches around. Order your food in the Log Cabin Bar, get a beer or wine, then bring your ticket to the guys grilling outside. Oak grilled tri-tip is served on a French roll with your choice of house-made bbq sauce, apple horseradish, and fresh salsa. The scenery is beautiful and the crowd is very local. Note: double check the website in advance to make sure they're serving sandwiches before you head over. "
"This place is such a fun, unique experience. It requires a little bit of a drive up the mountain, but trust me, this bikers spot is great especially if you go on the weekends for live music and tri-tip BBQ! "
"This place is a hidden gem. An old stage coach inn from the 1800s is now a beautifully decorated, and delicious, restaurant and bar. Don't miss out! Call ahead to make reservations. "
