The Maverick Saloon is a lot of fun. They used to have only one location in Santa Ynez, but they have now opened a location in Santa Maria. It is geared toward people who enjoy a "cowboy" type of atmosphere and enjoy country music. They serve decent burgers and other food. It is a fun place to go on the weekend to dance to some good country music. They also frequently have some new up and coming country stars that will perform live - many times it will be stars who are already on the radio, but haven't really established themselves. I really enjoy going here because I don't really like dancing to the "club" music that most of the other bars have.
