Firefighters reportedly arrived on scene around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday and were able to contain the flames to the kitchen area.
Workers say Santa Maria police and fire collected video from cameras in the area.
Police and fire have not yet commented on the investigation.
No word on the cause of the fire or when the restaurant may re-open.
