Orcutt, Old Orcutt, California


Though part of the City of Santa Maria, "Old Western Town" Orcutt is unique and individualistic. It features its own downtown region that looks like a stage set out of a Western movie.  The primarily residential bedroom community in northern Santa Barbara County has managed to enter the 21st century with landmarks intact, and most are thankful for that. 


Considered a highly desirable area to live, Orcutt is nestled in the Santa Maria Valley, south of Santa Maria along Highway 101. Housing developments, a school district and various community organizations such as Orcutt Horseshoe Club offer residents the best of both worlds.  They can partake in very local activities at home or drive one to five minutes to libraries, shopping malls and centers and museums located next door in Santa Maria. 


Bordered to the south by Clark Avenue and to the north by Blosser Avenue, locals are familiar with one of the best restaurants in the region, "Jacks." This casual, two-room dining facility  offers a large variety of American favorites and monster sandwiches (including Reuben Sandwich), soups, salads and large servings of pie displayed in a tall, refrigerated glass case as you walk in the door. People often order a single serving of pie heaped high with meringue and split it.  Haven eaten in Jack's a few times, I've always seen at least one person in my group go home with leftovers.   Jack's Restaurant & Bakery  156 S. Broadway Av. Orcutt CA 93455 (805)937-1871 


Orcutt was founded in 1904 by a William Warren Orcutt, a Union Oil geologist who discovered oil in the town. The fertile land was used primarily for farming at the turn of the 20th century and farming continued as a commercial endeavor until housing demand drove up the cost of land.  Known for its quality of education, Orcutt is a community where family life is a way of life.
