The Hitching Post

Last Saturday, on a chilly night in Buellton (30 degrees by the time we left the restaurant), my Gaditano and I trekked from our motel room to the Hitching Post. The place was packed, and we had no reservation, but we lucked out big time when we walked up to the bar right as two patrons were leaving. We ordered up a bottle of their Highliner Pinot Noir (the best wine we had on the trip), shared a grilled artichoke, then a steak, fries, salad and corn chowder. Very cozy and old fashioned, and very good. A perfect way to end the day.

I love this place. Their ribs are the best meal I've had in the Santa Ynez valley.

I did the same trip a couple of years ago-in honor of Sideways, and I agree-it's the best wine I think I've ever had still to this day (maybe like 1 or 2 rivals). Yum!
