Jack’s Restaurant and Bakery has graced the streets of Santa Maria Valley’s Old Town Orcutt neighborhood for more than 45 years.

Fresh on the scene, however, are the new owners Chris and Terri Salazar who have introduced a Santa Maria Style Barbecue grill to the kitchen. Using authentic Santa Maria Valley red oak, the Salazars have their barbecue masters cooking up everything from their Tri-Tip Dinner entrée and Black and Blue Burger to the Santa Maria Valley Wrap featuring tri-tip, salad greens, bacon, avocado and more.

The Salazars have stayed true to the delicious home style quality cuisine for which Jack’s is famed. Best-loved favorites remain on the menu including the extensive breakfast options that are served all day, plus delectable lunch and dinner entrees — also up for grabs at any hour. Other big hits include their fresh-baked pies and cakes. From what we can tell it sounds like Jack’s still knows a thing or two about keeping its patrons happy and coming back.
