I grew up in Santa Maria but now live in Wisconsin. I absolutely love this Santa Maria seasoning and I'm so glad I can bring a little bit of Santa Maria here.
Original Santa Maria Seasoning
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.
THE ULTIMATE ALL-PURPOSE SEASONING
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.
This is the only santa maria seasoning that I use. In fact, it is pretty much the only seasoning I use on almost any meat. So delicious without being overly salty.
We have many seasonings in our collection but, our go to seasoning has been SUSIE Q’s Santa Maria Seasoning for more than twenty years.
Still my favorite go to seasoning!
Best Santa Maria seasoning you can buy !!!
Tritip steaks are good, but tritip rub with this seasoning is great!
Reminds me of BBQ growing up on the Central Coast. Susie Q's was always on hand! So glad it find it available online and the same as I remembered!
I know this is suppose to be a tritip rub, but this is by far the best all purpose seasoning. My family uses it on all meats and even vegitables. My only complaint is the price, but can't find anything better out there.
Introduced to Susie Q by a friend in Arizona. I placed my order as soon as I got back to Nebraska it's the best use it on fish, chicken and beef. Wish I could get it locally, but will place another order before my supply runs out.
Santa Maria seasoning is the best. I've used it for years on beef brisket and tri tip. Simple seasoning but provides exceptional flavor through and through.
We have been ordering this Santa Maria seasoning for years now! Love it! We use it for beef pork and chicken. The best flavor!
This is great stuff!
Absolutely LOVE this product and have used it for years!
I've cooked hundreds of pounds of chicken and tri-tip with the Susie Q seasoning. No matter the audience it is always a crowd pleaser. The best meat seasoning ever and a great base layer for any meat.
I love this stuff!! We put Susie Q on everything from sandwiches to meatloaf! The best on the market!
Have used it for years and still love it. SO easy when you don't have to use different seasonings when you can have it all in one and use only a couple other seasonings. GREAT product that I have passed on to my children.
This seasoning is the best!!!! I love it and use it on everything. I'm now a lifetime customer.
We use this seasoning almost daily. It complements just about every type of meat and vegetable we use, as well as eggs, salads, you name it. One of my personal favorites is Susie Q's on cottage cheese!!
Best seasoning combo on the market
Such a huge fan of Susie Q Santa Maria seasoning. It goes well with everything and just a little goes a long way. Couldn't do without it!
I love this stuff. I use it on everything. It's my go to seasoning.
this is the best tri tip seasoning but also tastes great on all meats and fish
Have been using Susie Q's Santa Maria seasoning for years.. great on steaks. good on pork and chicken also. Even use it on asparagus and broccoli. Love this stuff. Thanks.
I, like you, have tried many seasonings. Most ingredients are basically the same. However, Susie Q's is a perfect combination that just simply hits the mark. Like a great song of melody and lyrics, this seasoning is my all time favorite!! Purchased for myself and gave to friends. Perfection...
While in the Air Force, my family and I spend numerous years in central California and fell-in-love with the Santa Maria BBQ. Now retired in Texas, I manage to find Tri-Tip but not the "right seasoning" until now. This Susie Q's Santa Maria Seasoning is the very best not only for Tri-Tip but also for any beef, poultry, or veggies you grill/cook. Awesome seasoning and I will not use any other.
This Santa Maria Style Seasoning is great on so many foods........keep it coming!
Great flavor! I've used it on fish, meat and chicken and receive a lot of compliments.
Great product good for grilled veggies and meats
Wonderful flavor, perfect every time. Have used this Santa Maria Seasoning for over 20 years.
Our family has used this seasoning for years. Our BBQ's are not BBQ's unless we have this seasoning. Beef, Chicken, Pork, Fish and veggies they are all more tasty with Susie Q's
Since trying Santa Maria seasoning many, many years ago, I haven't come across anything close to this!
We love this seasoning everything from eggs to fish and in between. It has become our go-to spice for cooking!
We have loved this santa maria style seasoning for many years. It's very versatile - not just for steaks.
A friend bought me the small bottle to try. I went through it in no time i put it on everything. Best seasoning ever i recommend it to everyone!
Been using this seasoning for years. First found it in Costco and searching for another place to buy it. Found it on line and recently used it on BBQ fish, BBQ shrimp, and asparagus with great results. Now testing the pink label Santa Maria seasoning.
I still haven't found anything this is NOT good on. I just wish I could find this in one of my local grocery stores.
For years my parents have been shipping loads of this seasoning to me everywhere I have gone. I love the taste of home and so does my company. We love it on everything
I grew up in Santa Maria and have missed these flavors. This will be a standard seasoning in my home and will be ordering again.
Goes great on everything. I have been using this product for years. I like to BBQ and smoke a lot. Great on fish also.
Just started using this seasoning and I love it on meat and vegetables!
This seasoning makes everything taste wonderful!!!
Primarily used for tri-tip, but is good on anything!
Best seasoning I've ever tried. I always reorder when I get low on the product
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.
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.
I have been buying this seasoning for years and it is my favorite for steaks and tri-tip. When I smoke up a tri-tip up with this seasoning all my friends and family cannot get enough. Great product and fast shipping.
We use Susie Q seasoning (aka 'Santa Maria spice') on or in virtually everything we cook! We absolutely love it!
Love your products
I was turned on to this seasoning a few years ago and haven't stopped buying it since. I use it on everything from potatoes, to meat, to the most amazing fish. Susie Q's has really SPICED up my cooking!!
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!
We love the Santa Maria Seasoning and use it on everything from eggs, to soups and meats. I couldn't find it locally so I went directly to the web site. I stock up so I never run out. Outstanding product
Live in Arizona and use it on all meats and even fish when BBQ Live in a small town and every time I do Ribs at a local bar we sell from 60 to 80 racks because of this seasoning
I have been consuming this seasoning since I was a small child, due to growing up in the Santa Maria Valley. I've used other seasonings, but in 30 years this seasoning is "hands down" my absolute favorite. It's tremendously wonderful with any type of food your cooking and blends well with everything!!! Thanks Susie Q!
Love how the Santa Maria seasoning makes my steak-roast--chicken-pork taste! Add a bit of oak to the fire and --ohhhhhh- is that good!!!
We love Susie Q brand of seasoning. We put it on everything and have turned several friends on to it as well.
if you are just starting or a refine griller this seasoning is hands down the best,easiest and by far the most versatile there is,great om n beef,pork ,fish and even breakfast eggs
I have missed not seeing this seasoning at the grocery stores and was so happy to have it shipped! It is the perfect blend of spices and we use it for everything from steaks and chicken to breakfast potatoes! It's the best!
Amazing on all meats and perfect for potatoes for breakfast!
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. Loved it so much, we began ordering from you directly since we live in NC. Have given the product to many of our friends as gifts. I now order for them too!!! Just recently ordered more including the large bulk.
I lived in Santa Maria in the 90s we moved back east. cant find it here I put it on everything . Just buy it
I use the Original SuzieQ on grilled salmon several times a week!! Perfect seasoning to bring out the best flavor, and not overwhelm the fish. Love it!!!
best all-around spice for a multitude of meats and vegetables--
I have been using Susie Q seasoning for years. I use it on chicken, beef, pork, soups and stews. As far as we are concerned it is the best seasoning ever.
I was introduced to this seasoning 16 years ago, and have not used anything else since. It has graced meats ranging from homemade hamburgers, buffalo, goat, and chicken. It has livened ip scrambled eggs, and is a regular in our spaghetti sauce.
This is absolutely the best seasoning ever! I use it on everything. My brother originally bought it for me as a gift and now I find myself giving it out as gifts. I was so happy that I was able to order more online before I ran out and pleasantly surprised at how quickly I received my package.
We were introduced to Susie Q's Santa Maria Seasoning by some friends of ours who are from the Santa Maria, CA area. We couldn't get enough of the flavor and thought it tasted great on EVERYTHING. It is now a staple in our spice cabinet and used just about daily.
We love this seasoning and use it in almost every dish we cook. It is excellent.
Fantastic on beef, chicken, seafood, and vegetables.
This is the best spice ever
This product is awesome. It gives wonderful flavors to your food. It is not just for meat, we put it in our scrambled eggs with cheese amazing.
It's completely different from any "garlic salt" I've ever used. So much better. Amazing!
Use this stuff on everything!!!
This is the BEST Seasoning that I have ever used. I have been using it for almost 10 years on beef, pork, fish, eggs, vegetables, etc. It is very hard to find in the stores and I am very happy that Susie Q's has it on their website.
I have been using this product for years, it is absolutely the best! In the past I lived in Santa Barbara County and was able to purchase it easily. When I moved out of state, friends always checked before visiting whether I needed Susie Q Seasoning. I have used on beef, chicken and Salmon. Love this stuff!
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.
We were introduced to this through my grandfather in-law. I can't seem to use anything else now. It's ruined me for other spices. :)
Have been using Suie Q brand spices for years now!!! Love them for everything!!!!
Boneless skinless chicken breast, season both sides, fry, cube, throw on top of a salad, dress and mmm!! It's the best!
Santa Maria seasoning is absolutely the best - good on pork, beef, chicken, stews, soups. My daughter brought this seasoning to my attention many years ago and I have used it since. I even put it on prime rib mmmmm delicious!!!
We use this product on just about everything from meats to salads It is a great table top seasoning also. We use it in home and also our catering business
I lived in Santa Maria for many years and I use the spice continually now that I live in San Diego I can't live without it I've taken it with me to Mexico to Europe and out of Oklahoma and I'm always having to order for everyone else because they say they can't live without it !
Best seasoning I use it on everything
I have been using Susieq seasoning for many many many years, and have found nothing else better than it. I have purchased for my family and friends and they also are very pleased!
This seasoning is used almost daily at our house. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Its unique blend lends to proteins, vegetables & starch. Less salt with good flavor.
Out of all seasoning I've used Santa Maria is no 1
I have been using your seasoning for the past 10 years, The only season I use, all of my friends are using it also.
LOVE this stuff. Been using it for 30+ years. Lightly oil chicken breast, season w/ Santa Maria, grill, broil, bake, or Set-It-And-Forget-It. Best chicken ever, and HEALTHY. Also use on tri tip (cook on rotisserie).
This stuff gives a former Santa Maria resident a taste of "home". It's good on steak, burgers, chicken, fish, French bread...everything I've used it on.
We live in WI and cannot get this seasoning locally. This is the best on tri tip, pork and chicken. Lucky for me I have relatives in CA that discovered this seasoning. Top notch...the best!
I have used for 30 years
Won't cook ANYTHING without having some around in case I need it. I refuse.
FROM THE KITCHEN TO THE TRAGER, TO THE OVEN, TO THE BBQ AND THE DUTCH OVENS, IT'S ALL YOU NEED BESIDES SAUCES!!!
I grew up in the central coast area and missed tbeing able to eat wonderfully seasoned tri-tip. Luckily, I found out Susie-Q sells their seasoning on line. Words can't describe how excited I was! Every time we use the seasoning, I feel that much closer to my home, the central coast.
I season all my meats, chicken, and fish with this seasoning. I season most of my side dishes too. Great to smoked meats.
This is the best seasoning that we have ever had. Love it on our tri-tip. Never use anything else. Thank you.
I've been buying this combination of seasonings for years and it's the best. You can't make it at home this good. Just used it on baked jumbo shrimp for a holiday party last weekend and it was a huge hit. Love the stuff.
My wife and I love this seasoning. We have used it on beef chicken and pork, even bacon wrapped asparagus. It always compliments what ever we season with it. We grill, smoke and cook on the stove top with it. We would recommend this to all cooks.
i love this seasoning. was introduced to Santa Maria seasoning when i lived in the Santa Maria Valley area 10 years ago. Loved eating tri tip. I recommend product !
Granted I grew up on Santa Maria Style BBQ, which this seasoning is part of, but everyone I introduce it too loves it. Besides steaks, I use it all the time on asparagus, chicken drumsticks, and salmon.
Turned on to Suzie Q during my many trips to launch rockets ar Vandenberg over the years. Won't grill without it!
I have been using Santa Maria Seasoning for many years. It goes great with everything. Either meat or vegetables. It is the perfect blend of spices that make it outstanding. I will always buy this spice for my cooking.
EVERYTHING TASTES BETTER WITH "SUZIE Q" I use it almost every day. I really appreciated the free shipping since I can't get it in Colorado. Need an sales rep??!! EVERY THING TASTES BETTER WITH "SUZIE Q" I can't remember a day I haven't used it! It's like chicken broth and bacon....makes everything better.
Ordered four of the 22 oz. original seasoning. We love this seasoning and it is not available in stores in Oregon. I had gotten an email that also gave me a code for free shipping, which was wonderful.
Love it, we used it on all our meats we cook,
I lived on the central coast for years and consider Santa Maria my home town. I know what oak pit BBQ should taste like and how a tri-tip should be cut. Just because I moved to Arizona does not mean I should miss the flavor of authentic Santa Maria style BBQ. Susie Q allows me to flavor my meats and all my favorite foods while reminiscing of home. Thank you, Susie Q, for bringing the taste of the central coast out to the desert.
I grew up on the central coast always using the original seasoning. I have lived in Austin Texas for 17 years and still order or have shipped to me this seasoning. There is nothing to compare it to. It is simply the best on everything! Thank you!
I was given this seasoning many years ago by a friend named Joe. So I always called it Joe's seasoning. I started ordering it myself and never want to be without it.
I use my SusieQ seasoning almost everyday. It's wonderful on almost anything, from fish to filet.
We have been using Susie Q Santa Maria seasoning for years now. We ran out and couldn't get it locally, (San Diego). We stayed different brands and just weren't satisfied! I loved the free shipping, so ordered more recently! We'd love to have it available in San Diego!
Santa Maria seasoning plus a little Tony Chachere's makes the BEST steak ever!!!!
I've used this product for 8 years on all, and I mean all steaks, and pork chops, eggs, etc. and everyone tells me, especially the steaks, that they are the best steaks they have ever had. Of course I use good quality steaks but before I used Santa Maria style seasoning they were only Ok. Now, they're the best. Very very good product. Thank you for such a great product. David, central Oregon.
We use this on everything. It makes everything taste better.
Suzy Q spices are the very best we won't BBQ without them it just isn't the same!!
Best steak ever with Susie Q's original Santa Maria V. Style seasoning .
We've used this seasoning for as long as I can remember....the very best.
We've been Suzie Q seasoning since being offered to the public. We're no longer living in Santa Maria lived in Santa from '67 to '06 along with our daughters in San Antonio and Washing D.C. My wife and the girls use it in everything (matter of fact these's some on the Thanksgiving bird being cooked as I type). It's use it in chili, soups, eggs, veggies, fish and of course the new found cut of meat in the Austin to San Antonio area due to all us Cali transplants to Texas the Tritip.
Seasoning for all dishes
Have been using this for many years. It is good on everything.
Susie Q seasoning is like magic! Everything you sprinkle it on instantly becomes delicious! I have no doubt that it would even make my flip flops taste great.
We have introduced this product to our whole Texas family. we order and share. Best seasoning for everything! !
Best seasoning on the west coast... You , can use the seasoning on basically everything...! I'm a Lifer with Susie q seasoning.. I got a lot of people hooked on this product in San Diego... They would always want me to bring some back to San Diego after visiting Santa Maria...
Lived in Santa Maria for 10 years - won't use any other rub still. Absolutely the best for chicken and beef in any recipe.
Susie Q's has the best Santa Maria Seasoning on the planet! I put it on everything but my cereal !!! Brad from So. CA.
I put the Santa Maria seasoning on everything. It is my go to! I make some baked wedge fries with olive oil, chili powder, paprika and Santa Maria seasoning and they are the bomb. Been using it for about 10 years.
This seasoning not only adds great flavor to any meat (pork, beef, poultry, fish, etc.) but brings out more of the flavor of the product that it goes on. I add it to my eggs (scrambled, over easy, Omelets), some soups, etc. Don't ever stop making this product!
I've been ordering this Original Santa Maria Valley Style Seasoning ever since I discovered it at a Winery in Paso Robles, CA. I travel all around the country and am So happy I always have access to this amazing seasoning. There is no other like it!!
In 1997, while visiting our son at Vandenberg AFB in CA, we heard about the fantastic BBQ in Santa Maria. While there, we also discovered Susie Q's fantastic Santa Maria seasoning and were immediately sold on it! Since then our kitchen is never without it. We have moved a lot and no matter where we are Santa. Maria seasoning is easily available on line.
The BEST seasoning by far I have ever been introduced to!!! I live in AZ so I have to order it online because I can't find it in any store here, but it is worth it!! I use it on every meat and vegetable I cook!!
I've been using & sharing this amazing seasoning for at least 25 years if not longer. It has the ability to enhance everything that comes out of your kitchen, any meat, poultry, fish, vegetables,even grilled bread. Can't imagine no Susie Q , I'm totally a huge promoter, just want everyone I know to have happy taste buds.
Been seasoning with SuziQ's for almost 30 years. My family can't live without it now.
Discovered Susie Q's from a California friend who introduced us to Tri-Tip roasts. We love the blend and use it on many things we cook on the ranch
We lived in Santa Maria for almost 18 years and we have not found a seasoning that is any better...it tastes good on everything. Even scramble eggs.
A fellow BBQ enthusiast and user recommended this product with the absolute highest praise and said "here's nothing you can't use it on". I agree. Used it this weekend when it arrived on chicken. Added it to stuffed peppers and added it to a cheese omelet tonight. It was a great referral and has become a staple for me going forward. Thanks!
We moved to Utah from Orcutt and Susie Q is what we miss the most! Whenever we go back or some one comes this way it's the one thing that has to come back to Utah! It's just simply the best...on anything!
Susie Q original is overall the only season I use it makes evert hung taste wonderful
Best on steaks...and everything else!
I've been using the original seasoning for many years. Nothing tastes as good without it. We get compliments on how tasty the meat is. Recently when we couldn't get Susie q's I tried something else that had high marks, but I thought it was horrible. Susie's isn't cheap, but it sure makes your food tastes great.
Still the best after 30 years. Go Ducks and Go Righetti Warriors
Love this seasoning! Use it on steaks, burgers, chicken, potatoes.... anything!
Everything good we remember about Santa Maria. Will probably try some of your other products.
No BBQ is complete without Susie Q's!
No BBQ is complete without Susie Q's!
When we lived in Santa Maria, CA we discovered Susie Q's. Since then it has been the essential seasoning on most of our food. We can only get it online in AZ, so when friends or family go to the Central Coast they must bring us back several jars. We cannot cook without it!
Lived in Santa Barbara Ca for most of my life. Santa Maria was 60 miles away and loved the Santa Maria bar be qued tri tip. We retired in Oregon and couldn't find the Suzy Q in Oregon. I tried others and they weren't the same. Now I order in the Suzy Q and all is good in the universe. This is good stuff!!!
