Reviewed 7 March 2017

first time visit. I drove by this place many times, and decided to try for take out. I ordered the tri-tip and 3 rib combo with coleslaw and potato salad. Bad idea. for your $15 you get MAYBE 8 oz of meat total. the tri-tip was tasty but very tough and the 3 slices you could fit in a sardine can. same with the ribs, the 3 ribs were approximately the size of a cigarette pack. I should have taken pictures to show the small size of both meat selections. the cole salw was good, it tasted fresh but it was maybe a tablespoon of it. same with potato salad, fresh but tiny amount. I would have thought for $15 there would be enough for a decent meal. Not.

they have inside seating but it is a counter-order style. more fast food type than I was expecting.

Good food at a good price, but if your expecting some mind blowing Food network experience, buy a plane ticket to Memphis.

Hoever, if your looking for good food and a good environment to watch mnf or a basketball game, BBQ Land is your place.

I've been going here for years and would recommend it to anyone. I was looking at some of the reviews on here and some people need to calm down, your not in the south eating bbq, your in Santa Maria.

It is just a fast food kind of bbq place.
Food was ok. With some asian influence.
The interior could use some remodeling.

We gave the place a try as the manager where we were staying recommended the place. We went with the Sandwich Specials, the wife with Tri-Tip and Pulled Pork for me. The sides were a bit better than the sandwiches and there was plenty of seating.
It was worth the price...

My daughter handed me some Barbecued ribs one night and they were the most delicious ribs that I have ever tasted. She said they came from Barbecue Land on South Broadway. I have been driving by that restaurant for years and never knew the Heaven inside that awaited me.
