‒ About ‒

‘ODE TO THE BUFFALO GALS

In the 1800’s the “Buffalo Gals” were thrill-seeking women that captivated audiences riding bulls, doing bareback tricks, or breaking bucking broncos.  We, at Buffalo Gals have drawn our inspiration from these wild west women to bring you adventurous, “have grill will travel” spirit.  We’re a full-service catering company specializing in Santa Maria style BBQ.  It’s a culinary tradition rooted in the Santa Maria Valley dating back to the mid-19th century.  Our award-winning tri-tip, chicken, buffalo flank, and linguiça sausage are seasoned before grilling over red oak, and our custom-made grills have a hand crank that helps us adjust the desired distance from the heat. It’s perfect for a casual hoe-down or corporate show-down.

The hired hands at Buffalo Gals Grilling will grill and carve in true rancheros-style, and serve everything you’ll need to host a flavorful and memorable event.  We’ll bring the grill, buffet tables & tablecloths, enhancements, serving equipment, paper goods and staff.  You are also welcome to order and pick-up from our 8th Street location.  For a backyard BBQ, rustic wedding, or for a big to-do for thousands, Buffalo Gals Grilling is more than a feast, it’s a performance.
