There’s a reason this authentic Santa Maria 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 Santa Maria Seasoning
Written by John Hunt on Jul 1st 2022

I grew up in Santa Maria and I have moved away in the 90's. Moved all over the country and have had a lot of food. NOTHING comes close to the original seasoning. I love to see other places say we have Santa Maria tri tip on the menu. so I have to try it and then I'm so disappointed. I then talk to the manager's and give them some of my travel packs to try and they are so shocked. They then have to order the real deal. You cant make this up in your restaurant or home. Its the base to all my cooking and when other try it they make it the base of theirs as well. I would make trips back home to get it and buy out the place but mail order is a GREAT thing now. Thank you for keeping such a great recipe going. ITS THE BEST!

Best Seasoning around
Written by Randall Lee Schortzmann on Jun 30th 2022

This is the best seasoning available for any type of food. We use it on meat, vegetables, casserole's, eggs anything you can think of. Wouldn't go anywhere without it.

Keep the good stuff going
Written by JOHN PEREZ on Jun 29th 2022

I have to say that the Blue Label Santa Maria Seasoning and the Pinquito Beans are the best...exceptionally unique in taste and quality for foods products. I've been using/eating these products every since I lived in Lompoc and Santa Maria.. It's hard to convince anyone of a product unless they've tasted it and once that happens, they're hooked...like me. It's great stuff and you can't go wrong with these products. Keep the good stuff going...makes life better.

Susie Q is the best
Written by John P on Jun 29th 2022

Susie Q's Blue Label Santa Maria Seasoning and Pinquito Beans are the best and most unique among food products. It's hard to explain to anyone else how they must try your products unless they've tasted the real deal and once that happens, they're hooked. It's great on many food choices, far too many to mention. I've known that since I lived in Lompoc and Santa Maria for twenty years....and I still have to stock up on the good stuff in fear of running out....Heaven Forbid. Let that never happen. You're the best.

Santa Maria Seasoning
Written by Vicki West on Jun 29th 2022

I have used this seasoning forever! I’m guessing I’ve used it for close to 20 years. Any recipe that calls for garlic, garlic powder, or garlic salt, I use Santa Maria instead. My son’s friend took a trip to California wine country just recently, and came back telling about this amazing seasoning, so my son asked what it was……Susie Q’s Santa Maria Seasoning. My son said, “Oh, my mom has been using that my whole life,” and sent him a picture of the original shaker in my cabinet!

We use this seasoning on meats, grilled vegetables, in soups, you name it. Makes everything better!

All I'll Use!
Written by Jen Vallejo on Jun 28th 2022

Susie Q's Santa Maria Blue Label Seasoning is the best. I'm very particular about seasoning and don't like a lot of them but I tried this and now it is all I'll have. It works well on chicken, pork, beef, potatoes, popcorn and even in mac & cheese. We use it when making the meat and sauce for spaghetti too. It's got a nice taste to it, not too spicy but flavorful. My husband may alternate his food with other spices but he too always comes back to Santa Maria Blue Label Seasoning. It's a winner and we've been using it for probably a good 15-20 years at least. You can't go wrong with this seasoning.

Nothing compares!
Written by Dennis Patton on Jun 27th 2022

I was introduced to Santa Maria Original Seasoning in 2003 and have used it to flavor up so many types of food, whether they be at home, work, potlucks, cookouts, you name it - when used just right, i’ve gotten so many compliments on many of the foods that I’ve cooked up. I’ve used it on all red meats, pork, chicken, pretty much any kind of fish, baked potatoes veggies and most recently at a cookout at local river here in Japan, fresh squid & shrimp. Misted with a soy sauce and vinegar mix then dusted with Santa Maria Original Seasoning, it made that ocean between coasts of Japan and California not seem so big. It was an instant hit! Just as it was as a seasoning on edamame. Thanks again Susie Q for this delicious seasoning.

This is a staple in our house! I have been using this seasoning for 20 years… we use on quite literally everything from meat to veggies. Also a favorite hostess or Christmas gift…. Can’t go wrong!

LOVE Original Santa Maria Seasoning
Written by Megan on Jun 27th 2022

Buy it! We have been using this for years and years. Almost anything that hits the grill gets a dusting of this stuff. Tri-tip, steaks, chicken, pork ribs, beef ribs...you get the idea. It's also great in batter or flour you'd use for frying, like fried chicken or fried zucchini. Some seasonings are too chunky and fall/rub off. This has good sticking power. My kids love and I love it on some buttered popcorn too. Can't go wrong. I give it to people as a gift. Love it.

Revved up garlic salt
Written by Vince on Jun 27th 2022

This is my secret weapon that makes people ask, "What did you put on this?" If you like garlic salt, this is the best you're going to find! Originally designed as a dry rub for tri tip, it's great on everything - veggies, eggs, salmon, shrimp, chicken, chili, etc.

Customer For 30+ Years
Written by Alan Hanson on Jun 26th 2022

Hello Susie Q! I learned of your product about 30 years ago when I took a position where I spent a lot of time on the Central Coast. One of my fondest memories was attending luncheons at Cal Poly, where the Architectural Engineering (ARCE) department would do tri-tip BBQ's as a fundraiser. They would GENEROUSLY season the meat with Susie Q's, so I started buying it at local grocery stores and took it back home to L.A., where I'd use it on meat (obviously), but also on vegetables, seafood, Italian dishes, almost anything that needed a savory seasoning. Since I retired I order it by mail, it works perfectly! Best wishes, Alan Hanson

The Greatest Seasoning you can buy
Written by Gary Myers on Jun 24th 2022

I have been a fan of Susie Q Seasoning for more than 35 years. We found our first package of Susie Q seasoning on a trip to the Oceano Dunes at a local market. I have always enjoyed the Santa Maria Style of BBQ and when I found this seasoning my thought was why not try a local product. WOW I was blown away by the taste, the sea air and with the BBQ going this seasoning on everything set the tone for the whole trip and the many others that followed. On our twice yearly trips we would buy as much Susie Q that we could find, for our self and to share with friends and family. I introduced this great seasoning to untold amount of others, all have raved about its great taste. It has been my go to seasoning for everything that I grill and almost everything that I cook. The shaker is always close by and one never leaves the RV. A dash of Susie Q in that Bloody Mary on the beach in the morning establishes the mood for the day. I have tried many seasonings over the years and Susie Q is by far the best one I have found and this will be my seasoning of choice forever. Many thanks to the Righetti Family for sharing this seasoning with us all.

My bonus mom introduced us to Susie Q's Santa Maria seasoning years ago. It has become a must-have in my kitchen and my daughter's kitchen too. My brother in law also likes to cook with it. We use it on beef, chicken, eggs, and vegetables. Good stuff! Serious yummage.

Best seasoning hands down

I was introduced to this seasoning by my husband who grow up in the Santa Maria area. I first had it on some Tri Tip he made and it was melt in your mouth delicious.

Written by Lou on Jun 18th 2022

While serving in the Air Force, my wife and I were stationed at Vandenberg AFB during the 80's and fell-in-love with not only Central California but also the Santa Maria Tri-Tip BBQ. Now retired in Texas, I have managed to find Tri-Tip but not the "right seasoning" until now ... thank you Susie Q's. This Susie Q's Santa Maria Seasoning is exceptional, a perfect blend of herbs and spices and is simply the very best not only for Tri-Tip but also for any cut-of-beef, poultry, or vegetable you grill - I refuse to use any other seasoning on my Tri-Tip.

Written by Lila on Jun 17th 2022

Your seasoning reminds me of my Dad’s seasoning mix, I use it on everything. Don’t change a thing.

Hands-down Best Santa Maria Seasoning There is!
Written by Kathy Nelson on Jun 17th 2022

I've been using Susie Q's Santa Maria seasoning since I was introduced to it by a friend about 20 years ago. Of course I love it on tri-tip, but my seared salmon with Susie Q's is a family favorite. My husband was recently in Santa Maria so I told him to be sure to pick some up while he was there, but he ended up buying a different brand by mistake. It was horrible! Way too salty and didn't have the same flavor notes at all. I ended up throwing it out. I'll never use another brand!

You've Found IT!
Written by Jean Homan on Jun 17th 2022

Look no more. This is the perfect seasoning for just about EVERYTHING. It is my husband's go-to for tri-tip. It's so good, it is his speciality grill for EVERY family gathering. I can't tell you how many people have snapped pictures of the bottle with their cell phones. They want to know what he used and how they can get some of their own. We also use it on chicken and grilled vegetables. You just sprinkle it on and BOOM! The flavor combo is just right. Not too salty.. not too garlicky. You can't go wrong unless you skip this recommendation. Why waste any more time and money on sub-par food? It's time. GET SOME!

Susie Q Santa Maria Spice
Written by Christopher Scott Swink on Jun 17th 2022

My cousin introduced us to Susie Q’s Santa Maria spice over 20 years ago crusted over and marinated within Tri Tip. Since then, we have been using Susie Q’s Santa Maria spice as our go-to seasoning for just about everything. Best on red meat it’s also transforms chicken and some vegetables to new heights! We live in North Carolina and order a refill for us once a year, but make sure we we send some to a friend or two so we can change their world also.

What a great product. Use it for every bbq. When I moved to Utah I made sure to bring plenty with me. The people here say it is the best bbq they have ever had. Even ordered the pinquito beans for them. Needless to say they were a big hit. Now if you could just get this in the Costco up here. Luckily I come home to Santa Maria often and buy it every time. Well done

I grew up in Santa Maria and I grew up with Susie Q. Now I live in the Central Valley, and I make sure I buy a case of this seasoning when I visit family, so I always have it on hand. I have turned my friends onto this, and they always ask for more when they run out. Reluctantly, I give it away. ;) This seasoning is great on ANYTHING! Meats, chicken, veggies, popcorn, the list goes on and on. Try it, you will not be disappointed!

Perfect on EVERYTHING!

We have been buying Susie Q's for over 20 years... We use it daily on our burgers and grilled chicken, and those who know put it on their fries! But where it really shines is when we use it as a dry rub on our slow roasted tri-tip! And the pan drippings make the best au jus. People often ask what make our burgers so good and we tell them they are angus beef and our secret seasoning! And awesome customer service as well. Our orders have always been so easy to place and quick turn around on delivery! As long as we are open for business, we will have the OG seasoning on the shelf!

This is hands down the best of all choices available. We also use the bean seasoning in all the dry beans we cook. Thanks for your product.

There is nothing like this seasoning

My mom gave me my first bottle of Santa Maria seasoning after visiting her one year. She puts it on all of her fresh veggies straight from the garden and cooks all her food with it. I have been hooked ever since. I use it on everything. My two favorites are sliced cucumbers and chicken breast with fresh squeezed lemon and Santa Maria seasoning. Cook the chicken on convection setting and it’s so yummy and tender. Every year when she comes to visit the first surprise out of her suitcase is a brand new bottle of Santa Maria. It’s nice to have a all in one seasoning less containers in your pantry. Thank you Santa Maria

Once I went home and tried it - I've been touting (and giving as gifts) ever since. Everyone I have told/given it to loves it! Not just on meats - but grilled veggies, omelets, salad dressing, popcorn, and ANY place you'd use salt and pepper. Go big or cry later! It just disappears with so many reasons to use it! Thanks Susie Q - one of life's simple pleasures!

Original Seasoning on Everything

We were referred to your seasoning by a restaurant. We had a steak and it was wonderful. My husband asked what they used and they said this. We've been using it regularly ever since! Hamburgers, steaks, london broil, I even tried it on my baked potato. Have told our friends too who have said it's the best steak they have eaten.

Best seasoning ever

Susie Q’s original Santa Maria style seasoning is the best most versatile seasoning that can be used on almost anything. We use it to season our steaks, tri tips, chicken, veggies and even pasta salad. Once we started using this, we no longer use lawrys seasoning salt or any other seasoning blend because this one is that versatile and that good!!

Santa Maria Seasoning is the only seasoning we use! We lived in Santa Maria for 27 years and have used it as long as I can remember. We continue to order it after we moved to SoCal. When our new friends taste our bbq they immediately want to know what seasoning we use. We order a lot because we use it on EVERYTHING! It would be easier to list what we don’t use it on. Our favorites are any meat or fish. In addition, we sprinkle on salads, garlic bread, eggs and even roasted potatoes and veggies with olive oil. Susie Q continues making a quality product! Thank you!

We all know that Santa Maria’s Original seasoning makes meats savory when cooked on the grill, or even in a pan, or broiler. But that’s just the beginning. Try it in mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, pastas, The only limit is your imagination. This is the only seasoning you’ll ever need! Kudos to you! We’ve been using 6 lbs of this per year for years!

I’m from Louisiana and lived in Santa Maria for about 5 years and in Calif for 26yrs total & had no problem filling my tri-tip needs. But after moving back to Louisiana found they had not heard of tri-tip much less being able to find it! I finally found a friend who works for a national food supply co. who is able to get them for me by the case and I tried unsuccessfully to recreate the seasonings I remembered . But a friend who still resides in Santa Maria suggested SusieQ’s and the rest is history - I have introduced tri-tip to many friends and family who recently have been able to sporadicly find tri-tips but claim theirs didn’t hold a candle to mine. After I finished laughing, I said it was missing the “right” seasoning and gave them some of my SusieQ seasoning along with the website address!!!

I grew up partly in Santa Maria and then outside of Lompoc. Raised eating tri-tip with various tweaked recipes, some better than others. Susie-Q's has been the best and so convenient to order. I've been down south for awhile now and have cooked at several company events. My tagline has been - "Santa Maria style BBQ, changing southern style BBQ one cookout at a time." It's always a hit and no leftovers (good sign).

It's just magic, we put your seasoning on almost everything, Beef, Pork, Chicken, Potatoes, Eggs, Asparagus and even salads. I'm always refilling the Stainless Steel shaker from the 6.5 lb. jar so I know everyone in the family is using it for something besides what the chief cook uses it for at meal time. Of course, everyone in our extended family has also tried a sandwich bag sample and I think they all have ordered their own by now. Used to be able to find it locally but purchasing directly from Susie Q is the most efficient and timely way to keep it on hand considering the free shipping.

I was introduced to Santa Maria by a friend. It is not sold where I live unfortunately. I find it to be the best seasoning all around for cooking and grilling.

Like taking a trip back to the Central Coast!

When I moved from SLO to Wisconsin, I brought a half-jar of Suzie Q's Santa Maria seasoning with me. It ran out way too soon! When I finally thought to search online, I saw that the label had changed - but when I got the goods, the case was the still the same. LOVE this stuff; it's good on EVERYTHING.

Awesome Seasoning

Sensational Susie Q

Great Dryrub for Pork Spareribs
Written by Alex on Mar 21st 2016

I've used Susie Q's Santa Maria seasoning for years on everything from veggies to meats (fish, Chicken, Beef, Pork, shrimp, lobster, etc.) you name it, it goes great. I love to BBQ and use the Original Santa Maria seasoning on pork spare ribs. I have been getting complements by the boatload on how I make the best BBQ people have every tried. It's all Suzie Q's Santa Maria. I like to pat dry the ribs the day before and rub with olive oil, fresh crushed garlic and a ton of Santa Maria seasoning. I marinade the ribs over night and smoke them the next day over hickory wood. It's a technique that is sure to please. My only gripe is that they don't sell the 6.5lbs container anymore and the the larger container went from 24oz to 22oz and the price went up. They should ship the product for free like most other online retailer as shipping cost are minimal and markup is high. Overall, its worth the price, I just wish you got a little more and that shipping was free!

Awsome spices
Written by Kaleen on Mar 17th 2016

Several years ago my husband was in San Diego on a golfing trip. He had the opportunity to taste the Susie Q's Original Seasoning.

Just recently ordered more including the large bulk.

Written by Marianne Armstrong on Jan 12th 2016

I lived in Santa Maria back in 1994 thru 1997 the love going to the topical Santa Maria BBQ on Saturdays in any given parking lot around town. We also bought this seasoning at the local store for our home to use in everything. We moved to Colorado in 97 and have been without it for 18 years. So HAPPY to have this back in my house again. It is without a doubt the most used seasoning in my home for sure.
