    About Us

    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 the fresh and colorful signature of Chef Rick Manson.

    Buon appetito!

    -The Minetti Family
