The Santa Barbara Chicken Ranch has been serving up the best Mesquite Bar-B-Q’d chicken and tri-tip for over 20 years! We cook with only real Mesquite charcoal imported from Mexico. No gas grill, no frying. Sure it’s harder to work with and takes a little longer, but nothing gives you that delicious, smokey, Mesquite grilled flavor like real wood charcoal. We serve our tasty tri-tip and chicken with traditional Mexican restaurant sides like whole pinto beans, warm tortillas and spicy salsa.
