"Where the elite meat" since the 1960's, the Hindquarter Bar & Grille's reputation as Santa Cruz County's premier steak house is well deserved. Recently purchased by long time HQ Manager, Laurie Stephens, Chef, Sam Yanez, and Bar Manger, Mark Urban, the HQ prides itself in serving perfectly grilled choice sirloins, juicy Angus New York strips, eye-opening Jack's pepper steaks, thick and juicy Filet Mignons, slow-roasted prime rib, hickory-smoked Chicago baby back ribs, and the absolute best burgers in all of Santa Cruz. The HQ is also popular with locals and visitors for its fresh local seafood, plump free range chickens, thick sandwiches, cool and crunchy salads, and delectable desserts. And when the NFL is on, the HQ's fan-friendly bar is every bit as popular for its pigskin as it is for its baby back ribs.
The HQ is open daily for lunch and dinner, and on Sunday for lunch/brunch. And we would be remiss if we didn't mention the HQ's fabulous nightly specials, available all year long.
