In Casmalia, former cow-town of the Old West, where California-style barbecuing was brought to perfection by the pioneers, has kept this live oak method of bringing choice, aged beef to the ultimate of gourmet flavor and tenderness. We endeavor to keep alive the traditions of the old romantic West.  The weather-beaten walls of our 120 year old building are crammed with memories that induce an atmosphere of Western nostalgia to the romantically inclined people who can relax and trade the pressures of the fast, modern world for an evening of Old West hospitality

All entrees are prepared on our famous indoor barbecue pit, using local red oak wood.

Dinners include:
Fresh vegetable tray, bay shrimp cocktail, dinner salad, choice of home cut French fries, baked potato or grilled vegetables, garlic bread, coffee or tea, ice cream or sherbet.

The Los Angeles Times called our fries the best in Southern California!
