This just in from Jesse Gaddy, co-owner of Barbareño at 205 West Canon Perdido Street:

“Join us for our brand new California-style barbecue lunch at Barbareño! We wanted to bring our love of the Santa Maria grill and Santa Barbara’s local flavors to our community in an approachable, affordable way – and what better way than a BBQ lunch? We’ll be serving up prime tri-tip with BBQ pico de gallo, ranch-rubbed smoked chicken, pulled pork with avocado-tomatillo BBQ sauce, grilled vegetables with spiced romesco sauce, and more – all cooked over our red oak-burning grill. Our dishes are available a la carte by the quarter pound, or as sandwiches, along with plenty of sides. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, follow your nose! We’ll be serving on Thursdays and Fridays from 11:30am-2pm or until we sell out. Service is at the counter with to-go orders welcome, and seating is out on our patio – no reservations needed. See you there!”

    Apologies to the Hitching Post, but Barbareno makes the best tri-tip ever!

  6. Jonathan says:

    I had lunch there today and it was excellent. I got the tri-tip and pulled pork as stand alone meats instead of a sandwich. Very pleasant to dine on the patio during the day.

    Best food in SB. Hands down!

    Smallest pour of wine in SB., hands down!
