There’s a reason this authentic Santa Maria Style Seasoning is our #1 selling product. It’s the essential ingredient for anyone whose passion is regional cooking, as well as a pantry staple that enhances the flavors of almost any food.

Our “blue label” original Susie Q’s Santa Maria Seasoning is a well balanced blend that rounds out on the palate without being salty or strong flavored. We use the highest quality ingredients to craft our seasonings, including California grown garlic, cracked black pepper, the purest earth salts and fresh parsley.


While professional grill masters rely on Susie Q’s for their Santa Maria Tri Tip seasoning, you can use this all-purpose seasoning to transform any savory food into an unforgettable dish. A pinch of seasoning will add a punch of flavor to sauces, soups, pasta and vegetables. Add a sprinkle to liven up butter, cream cheese, sour cream or cottage cheese. Use it as an authentic Santa Maria tri tip rub, but great for grilling, roasting or otherwise cooking any meat, including chicken. Use it instead of salt to create amazing Santa Maria style popcorn for your next movie-night in.

Best seasoning ever

This is the perfect seasoning for everything. It's not too salty and imparts the perfect flavor on whatever you put it. From steak, to eggs to seafood it's perfect!

Luv my Santa Maria style seasoning

I am a Santa Barbara native. Grew up going to bbq’s. I fell in love with the flavor of SusieQ’s as a young child. In 2019 I moved to Stafford, VA to be near my daughter and grandkids. I brought several containers of the original seasoning cross country, my family loves Susie Q’s seasoning. We use on most everything we cook. Miss the Santa Maria style bbqs but so happy we can enjoy the flavor here on the east coast. Wish the shakers weren’t sold out.

Perfect Blend

We were introduced to this awesome brand by a friend. We absolutely love grilling and roasting vegetables. This is not overly salty and the taste is outstanding.

Only stuff I've used for over 30 years

Since I was a kid this has been a family staple. And every year we'd go to Cali to go to all my friends would ask us if we were going to santa Maria to get the seasoning. I'm such a seasoning snob now and now so are my kids. We have sent this to friends as far as PA and VA.

On everything!

We came by this seasoning from a family member who learned about it while on vacation and grilling from friends of theirs from across the country.

Tried once, both of our families now use it on everything that can be grilled, from burgers to pork chops to chicken to fish and beyond. It is a staple!
