Santa Maria-style barbecue, California's only native barbecue tradition, doesn't often travel far from its origins. Except when it comes to Pleasanton. Red Smoke Grill's showcase entrée, the Santa Maria style tri-tip, is smoked and grilled over oak, sliced thinly, and topped with a freshly made salsa and cilantro cream. For the true experience, eat it with pinquito beans, french fries, and green salad. Or depart from tradition with chipotle-rubbed prawns, barbecued ribs, and rotisserie chicken.

Hours: 11:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. Mon.-Thu. & Sat.; Friday 11:00 a.m.-9:30 p.m.; Sunday 11:00 a.m.-8:30 p.m.
