For over 30 years, O'Connor's catering has been serving Northern California. We have served thousands of customers at corporate events and concerts but also delivered customized meals for weddings and family events. Although we are known for our Santa Maria style of barbeque, our owner and chef, Steve Dougherty, has over thirty years of experience and can tailor a menu to each client's unique needs. The Santa Maria Grill was opened in 2008 to allow our customers the opportunity to enjoy our unique meals any day of the week (except Monday). Customers rave about our signature rubs and marinades and enjoy sitting by our fire or watching a sporting event on one of our two TVs. O'Connor's is a family business and we are committed to serving excellent food at a reasonable price. If you are planning a specific event, we would be happy to have you in for a tasting so you can see for yourself what sets us apart from the rest. We hope to see you at our restaurant in Orangevale soon. Santa Maria Barbeque describes meats that have been cooked over the hot coals of a red oak fire. This style of barbeque has its roots in the mid-19th century, when the rancheros gathered to help each other brand their calves in the spring. The host would prepare a Spanish style barbeque as a thank you for his vaqueros (America's first cowboys), friends and family. The tender and flavorful meats from a Santa Maria barbeque have been called by Sunset magazine, "the best barbeque in the world", and the California Visitors Guide raves that this is the "number one food not to miss while visiting California". To compliment this fabulous barbeque style, O'Connor's has developed signature rubs and marinades that have been perfected by catering events throughout Northern California over the last thirty years. We hope you will visit us at our Santa Maria Grill Restaurant in Orangevale, or call and arrange for us to cater.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Service was slow, food was just fine, margaritas were average. Very busy place, so other people must like it. I read it had real Mexican food - I would call it more americanized Mexican food. Aug 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The service was great and very friendly! Aug 1, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Value. I actually took a picture of my order to go. I couldn't believe the skimpy portion and price.I ordered a three meat combo, it was about $17 and came with two sides and a small piece of what was supposed to be garlic bread. Th meat: beef brisket was fair could have been more tender. There were 4 small (bite/mouthful) pieces, 3 smallish pork ribs and a hotlink that looked more like a long, slim hot dog. Needless to say ....I was disappointed. The restraunt dining are seemed pleasant and clean. Decent parking and the server was pleasant. Oh...good brownies! Jul 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Tri Tip was out of this world. Jul 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by they serve fabulous tasting barbeque. However the carrot cake was very dry. I got it to go and tried eating it about 30 minutes after we left. Had to toss it. Jul 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The front counter staff was very friendly and helpful. Our food was not hot upon delivery, especially the meat. What? It's a BBQ place and the meat was not hot! The restaurant is not very clean. The ceiling, floors and booths are old and dirty. Although we enjoyed the trivia cards on the table, I just kept thinking about all the people that handle them and that they can't be cleaned. I had to go wash may hands before I ate. The food was good though, and I would visit again, as it is close to my home, but not often. Jul 28, 2014
