The Central Coast of California, BBQ has always meant grilling over an open fire of red oak, a style of cooking is native to our area and goes back to the days of the Spanish Rancheros.

Frank Ostini Sr.The Buellton Hitching Post was established in 1986, but our roots started at the Casmalia Hitching Post in 1952. It was there that Frank & Natalie Ostini brought "Santa Maria Style BBQ" to its peak of perfection and where children Bill, Bob, Terri & Annette continue to this day.

Here at the Hitching Post II in Buellton, we honor that tradition and also embrace the contemporary cooking styles. By combining the old and the new, we have created an exciting cuisine that is uniquely our own.

Along with our outstanding steaks, ribs and chicken, we also serve items such as smoked duck breast, ostrich, home-made soups and outstanding pastries; along with what the Los Angeles Times has called the "best" French Fries in Southern California!
