Hello, thanks to the central coast treasure, T.Jane, we're going to the tamale place on our way out of town, but after a fair bit of looking, there doesn't seem to be many options for evening dining in/near Santa Maria, other than the red meat palaces (jocko's, far western,et.al.), gourmet regional(Rick's in Orcutt), or Atari-ya (Japanese). Is there a better than o.k. 'sit down Mexican' place, or is the flatbread 'pizza' place open for dinner more than just Fri/Sat. these days? We're tolerant of many kinds of foods(partial to fresh veg's),thank you, the ever-friendly c.coast 'hounds!
