Meat Our Chef PitMaster

Our chef is a 5the generation Santa Barbara native who was basically raised in the kitchen. His early start in the family business at El Paseo & Somerset restaurants in the late 70s and 80s continued at various other restaurants in the city after the family closed up and retired.  

Later moving south to start his own business in the photo and film industry Chef Tony Bones has developed his own style and love for barbecue and now 20 years later and decided partner up with long time friend Tom Ramirez to bring every thing he has learned back home to share some of his favorites with everyone in his hometown at Goodland BBQ.
