After living in Santa Maria and then moving back to the east coast, finally getting back to Cali, I wanted some Tri-tip. I searched several reviews and found that Lous served tri-tip plates and sammiches!

New management has raised prices (what restaurant hasn't?) but to compensate no longer provides pretzels when you first sit down, or baked beans with sandwiches, or fresh-baked cookies afterwards. Sides are still excellent, but they no longer trim fat from perfectly cooked tri-tip.

I didn't think the barbecued baby back ribs were anything special and the side dishes were just average. Service was good but the astmosphere could be better.

We have been eating at Lou's for years. We visit when ever we need some barbeque comfort food. The tri-tip with green beans is to die for. It is not fancy or scenic, just a great neighborhood dinner with great food at a good price.

Complimentary chewy warm pretzel's to begin and complimentary fresh made cookies to finish! The food is great, my favorite is the original tri-tip sandwich. My husband and I love to go here for lunch.
