Add authentic Santa Maria style flavor to any dish with our red label Santa Maria style seasoning - which delivers a more prevalent salt note than our original blend and contains no added MSG.

Our “red label”, MSG-free Santa Maria seasoning, inspired by our passion for regional cooking, is a unique blend of cracked black pepper, pure earth salts and California grown garlic and parsley.


This versatile seasoning will transform any savory recipe into a family-favorite. Use as a dry rub for grilling meats or chicken, add a pinch to pasta, soups, sauces and vegetables to add a punch of flavor, or add some zing to snacks by sprinkling it onto popcorn, cottage cheese or cream cheese.

Great on everything!!!
Written by Shauna Drake on Feb 23rd 2023

I had my first introduction to this amazing seasoning 10 years ago when I first came to the central coast. I use it on everything…pasta, eggs, meats and popcorn! I have to send it to family in Arizona and Wisconsin because they’re hooked too. It’s a must have in my lunch bag for work.

Favorite seasoning ever
Written by Briana on Jun 29th 2022

We were first introduced to Susie Qs when we went wine tasting in the Santa Maria Valley over 10 years ago and we've been buying it since! We love it of course on tri-tip but enjoy it on everything from chicken to salmon to vegetables to potatoes. Hands down our favorite and we love that there is a No MSG option!

Best seasoning around for Santa Maria BBQ
Written by Douglas Oglesby on Jun 27th 2022

I have been buying Susie Q seasoning for over 10+ years. It is by far the only season that I go to when I’m looking to make authentic Santa Maria BBQ BUT the seasoning can be used for much, much more. Fish, chicken and etc. Every time I use it, it brings back great memories of growing up in Santa Maria. I highly recommend it!

Me and my family use Suzie Q Brand seasoning on everything, except for cereal and pancakes. Nice product.

Susie Q
Written by Jean A Poley on Jun 14th 2022

We started using Susie Q when we live on the Coast of California north of Santa Barbara, Santa Maria was our go to shopping area as we liked it better than S.B. That was some 30 years ago. We have had S.Q in our spices drawer. I can't tell you how many BBQ's were great successes because of this seasoning. We started with the first Steak seasoning and as products were added and trying them my FAVORITE is the Red Lable Seasoning.. It goes on most everything that comes out of my kitchen. I love the flavor and no MSG that kicks up my allergies. Trying this seasoning will not disappoint you.

I have used Susie Q's Santa Maria Style Seasoning (Red Label) for many years now. It is the seasoning I use for just about every dish I prepare. Everything taste better with a little bit of Santa Maria Seasoning is my motto! My children who are adults now request it for a Christmas gift. I purchase the 6.5 pound jar and my daughter usually has to ask for a bit more to get through to the next Christmas. Being able to purchase an MSG free seasoning that tastes delicious has been the greatest gift ever!

Santa Maria Valley Style Seasoning is the very first seasoning I reach for when I am cooking....and it doesn't matter what is on the menu! I absolutely love this seasoning for every kind of meat, beans, vegetables. It literally makes everything taste so much better that when I got busy and didn't realize I had run out of it, I didn't cook for 5 days while I was waiting for it to be delivered! I won't run out again!
