Welcome to the Far Western Tavern—contemporary California ranch cuisine inspired by local traditions.
Our restaurant is recognized as a landmark of Santa Maria Style Barbecue, a renowned regional fare rooted in native ingredients and methods that were first popularized by 19th century rancheros.
Our menu blends this local barbecue style with other dishes that reflect our family’s heritage in the Santa Maria Valley’s Swiss-Italian ranching community, all prepared with fresh flavors from nearby farms, ranches and vineyards.
The legendary fare of the Far Western Tavern is always ready to hit the road with our full-service catering operation. Our versatility and expertise ensure that your event will be graced with a meal to remember.
