Here on the California Central Coast BBQ has always meant grilling over an open fire of red oak wood. This style of cooking is native to our region and goes back to the days of the Spanish Rancheros.

In Buellton we have been grilling over the Coast Live Oak for more than 30 years, yet our roots go back to 1952. It was then that parents Frank and Natalie Ostini brought “Santa Maria Style BBQ” to its peak of perfection, and where their children continue to this day.

At the Buellton Hitching Post II, son Frank Ostini and his well-seasoned team honors the traditions of the past 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.

Combine this food with our own Hitching Post Wines, made by owner Frank Ostini and his winery partner Gray Hartley, and you’ll have a very special food and wine experience.

With great pride and confidence,
we ask that you sit back and enjoy . . .
You’re going to have a great dinner!
