Attention Inland Empire Chowhounds...got a new place for you to check out. Awhile ago I had mentioned it was coming...and I just found out they had the opening Monday. Unfortunately, I won't be able to get out there for about a month due to to traveling, so I hope some of you can give me a report.
I've been having this guy's (Steve McFarland) tri-tip for 10+ years now at fairs, catered events and at previous restaurants, and even with my trips to the Santa Maria area, I've still had none better. He's been catering out of the facility for awhile and decided to open up a 50-seat restaurant (open 11-8 Mon-Sat).
I have no connection to the place other than being a fan of the food, but tell Steve (or Tamie if you see her) that Bob from Rancho Santa Margarita sent you!
