Santa Maria tri-tip is a California culinary treasure. This method of barbecuing dates back to the mid-19th century and is still wildly popular today. The cut of beef is seasoned with a dry rub for twelve hours, then cooked slowly over indirect heat. You'll feel home on the range when this rancher's meal arrives at your door with bacon-ranchero beans and a creamy avocado slaw.

What People Are Saying

4 Stars
This was quite good--but needed something more (acid and sweetness) to balance the spiciness. The slaw was supposed to do that but there was not enough of it and it was sweet but had no acidity.

Delivery was on time and communication was great. However, meat and beans were dry. Will probably not order this again.
3 Stars
Meat seemed undercooked
5 Stars
a great, hearty meal. loved the slaw, but it's got quite a kick. i didn't mind, but between the bite in the ranchero beans and the punch in the slaw, my husband was a little overwhelmed with spice. delicious, though, and perfectly cooked meat.

Way too salty
2 Stars
Beef was undercooked and excessively chewy. Beans and coleslaw were fine.
2 Stars
Tough meat. Beans were excellent.
3 Stars
This should have been 5 stars, but the grade of beef needs to improve. It was perfectly cooked, right portion for a man, only average taste and tough to chew. I have ordered other meat dishes and I would say the same about them.
2 Stars
I'll give the beans 5 stars for sure:-) The Tri-Tip had no flavor and was full of grisle. The serving size was small. Would not order again but they should make the beans a side we can purchase.
1 Stars
The tri-tip that came in this order was approx. 70% fat. Frankly, it was inedible. What is more frustrating was the fact that it was obvious before I took the lid off. Someone dropped the ball on this order. I'd like this rectified.

Meat was amazing but the beans are a bit too salty
3 Stars
Was very chewy, hard to eat/swallow.
2 Stars
The flavors and portions were good but the meat was tough and hard to chew. Maybe had a cooked it in the oven but I don't think it would have mattered. This is the first dish we have been disappointed in from Munchery

Not crazy about this dish. The spice/flavor profile just didn't suit my palate.
5 Stars
delicious! great portion size, tastiest beans i've ever had!

Was skeptical about ordering for my husband because he only likes prime meat. However he tried this dish and loved it and thought the meat was good! He will have it again!
5 Stars
Where do I start? PERFECTION! Sooo delicious and a good size portion as well. Tangy, spicy, everything BBQ should be. One weird thing, I chose from the gluten free menue & Munchery added a free wheat-filled muffin for "desert".
3 Stars
There's a lot of fat in the meat.
4 Stars
Not so filling but good

On the saltier side, though a nice hearty meal. Good portion.
2 Stars
The beans and cole slaw were very good, but the tri tip was extremely fatty very disappointing!
2 Stars
I would give the tri-tip 5 stars but the beans were so spicy hot I had to toss them and all I could taste of the avocado slaw was jalapeno or some other hot spice and that ended up in the trash as well, Wished I had been warned. This was a major fail
5 Stars
A little on the spicy side, but still very good!

The trip tip had a great flavor and was cooked perfectly. I don't eat much red meat, but this was awesome! I even liked the baked beans. I could have done without the cole slaw.

The meat was perfect. The beans were bland. The condiment was nice, refreshing.
4 Stars
The meat was tender, delicious, and perfectly seasoned. The beans were smoky, cooked properly, and full of smoky flavor. Delicious. The slaw tasted fairly good but had a bit too much sauce. Overall a very impressive meal!
4 Stars
Slaw was more like guacamole. Not what I expected but still a tasty dish.
1 Stars
Had bacon on it I am allergic to bacon, and the meat was placed on top of the beans not separately so I could not eat the dish
1 Stars
I took one bite out of the steak and thought I was going to be sick. This item should not be on the menu.

5 Stars
Amazing with solid proportions. All three parts were extremely tasty.
5 Stars
Great portion size, healthy and tasty.
5 Stars
The meat came perfectly cooked and looked good enough to eat cold. I am glad that I heated it up though! Paired with the smoky beans as a side, this meal may have reached the pinnacle of deliciousness. And the cole slaw was different and delicious.
5 Stars
Delicious!!

Great!

The beans were so spicy I couldn't eat more than a spoonful and the avocado slaw was sour. It made me sad and left me hungry.
2 Stars
The meat was fabulous. The coleslaw though unfortunately was nothing like it appears in the photo. It was mushy and resembled watery guacamole. Neither my husband or I liked it. The beans were too spicy for me.
3 Stars
It was great but the beans were way too spicy! If it's that spicy u guys really have to warn us. We threw out half of one meal :/
5 Stars
Totally surprised by the quality of this food! It's amazing!!!
5 Stars
Great dish that was extremely easy to prepare.
4 Stars
So good. The seasoning on the meat was just right. The beans are pretty amazing. The side of coleslaw is pretty good. I don't like cilantro so that's the part of the coleslaw I didn't like, but that's just me. Def try this one
5 Stars
Delicious! Will order again!
4 Stars
The Coleslaw stole the show! So good! Beans were great also, the meat wasn't bad at all but I need to add extra time to it so that it wasn't all rare.
5 Stars
