Jocko's Steak House

Thursday, 28 Dec 2006 | Food, Restaurants, Travel


On our recent trip to Monterey, we traveled on US 101 up through Santa Maria. Just north of Santa Maria, there is the small rural town of Nipomo, the home of an unassuming restaurant which serves delicious Santa Maria Coastal Red Oak grilled steaks.

My friend Todd told me about Jocko's several years ago. He has family in Santa Maria and the locals love to frequent this restaurant for their huge steaks. The decor is not very fancy, but it doesn't matter to me because their New York Steak is cooked to perfection and large enough to feed Toni, Erin and me. That's our steak cooking on Jocko's outdoor red oak fire grill.


We were amazed how large the steak was. Our waitress told me the Filet Mignon is even larger than the New York Steak. I can't wait to go back on our next trip to try that one.

If you find yourself traveling near Santa Maria on the 101 and are craving a great steak, please give Jocko's a try. Just make sure you bring your family or friends to help you finish your meal or a very healthy appetite.
