Jocko's Steakhouse
125 N. Thompson Ave. (Tefft St.)
Nipomo, CA 93444

Gayot Review: Be prepared for a wait at Jocko's Steakhouse, sometimes two hours or longer on weekends; but the dining experience is well worth it. Once an Old West saloon in the late-19th century, the popular eatery in the quaint town of Nipomo is now a raucous, high-energy haven for lovers of good steak, especially those cooked Santa Maria-style over a roaring, fragrant oak fire. Jocko's portions are famously large, and we see many people departing with generous leftovers. We're fans of the New York steak and the filet mignon, and order them medium-rare, the better to savor their charred surfaces and juicy rose-pink interiors. Or go for the Spencer steak, a flavorful cut you won't see on many menus these days. We also like the pork chops, which are surprisingly large. Most meat dishes come with fresh homemade tomato salsa, another Santa Maria barbecue touch. Non-steak items are available but seem like an afterthought. Although the wine list is modest, it does highlight many of Santa Barbara County's meat-friendly reds.
