Anyone been to Far West Tavern in Guadalupe, CA for Santa Maria Tri tip?

Dmcker- Jocko's is closed on Easter. 

It appears that Far West tavern is open on Easter.  That is when I will be a bit north of santa barbara in the afternoon.  Just curious if anyone has tried this place.  Was featured in Sunset mag.

Bummer about Jocko's--should try it another time. Have heard many times about FWT in Guadalupe, though never been. You could possibly view it as a reasonable facsimile, though it isn't quite as barebones as Jocko's. Nor can I talk to their all-important meat, though by all accounts you'll be more than safe there. The Hitching Post (1) in Casmalia (have been) is the other of the traditional Big3 steak joints in Santa Barbara/San Luis cow country. Hitching Post II in Buellton (have been) is not in the same league, and quite a bit more chichi...

thanks, dmcker.   I found Hitching Post 2 overpriced and overrated.

Wish Jocko's was open... I was checking out their reviews and it looks great.

Anyway, go for the FWT, and let us know how it went!  Hope you're enjoying your holiday.  

Grilled beef today under the cherry blossoms, but ham yesterday (also outdoors under the canopy) for me. Aussie shiraz today, with German riesling yesterday. Friday night (yeah, also...) was grilled yakitori and vegetables on sticks with edamame and other simmered veggies, all with Sake after an initial microbrew 'kanpai'. They take their cherry blossom partying seriously over here....

NG, please report back.  Always interested in Santa Maria barbecue places. 

Here in Diamond Bar we are going with the not-very-Easter-traditional sandwiches made from leftover marinated grilled flank steak that we had on Friday.

I'm sipping a pretty good Aussie GSM right now.  It should be good with the sandwiches.
