    Firestone Grill

    0.07 mi from Buona Tavola

    Meat lover? BBQ lover? All of them above?! Well, you are in for a treat! Firestone grill has them all! I would recommend their tri tip sandwich and the pig sandwich! Their bbq sauce is what hits the spot. Don't come here and expect to not get dirty because you will get your hands filthy dirty. If you are the ...

    One of the most satisfying restaurants in downtown San Luis Obispo has moved to an even cooler location on Mission Plaza. Grab an outdoor table overlooking the creek and uphill toward the 18th-century Spanish mission. Then settle down with a glass of Edna Valley chardonnay or pinot noir and knife into an artisan cheese and charcuterie plate. Call the menu ...

    On the ground floor of the Granada boutique hotel, this is one of the most chic-looking bistros in downtown San Luis Obispo, with a boisterous yet still date-worthy romantic atmosphere that's a lot like creekside Novo, except with outdoor firepits instead of water-view tables. The local chef is renowned, and the menu of farm-to-table California cooking has a lot of ...

    I would this is one of my favorite Thai food in San Luis Obispo. Thai Classic is located in downtown SLO, right next to Firestone. They were rated the best Thai food in SLO and many rewards on their wall. The services is amazing that I cannot really explain other than you having to try. I usually order their Tom ...

    Kreuzberg California

    0.15 mi from Buona Tavola

    Moving into way bigger digs right on Higuera Street, San Luis Obispo's main drag, Kreuzberg CA gets my vote for the best coffee shop in SLO. Love curling up here with an old-school print book or my laptop on the tattered couches and shabby-chic chairs. Verve is the coffee bean roaster of choice, but they've got a huge variety of ...

    G's Italian Freeze

    0.14 mi from Buona Tavola

    Screw the trendy Fro-Yo places with tart flavors and fancy neo-mod decor, their pour-your-own glutonny of cream inan oversized bowl. Forget Jamba Juice with their huge caloried blends and boosts. You want great fruit flavor, high quality product, with no articial flavors, corn syrup or added ingredients? Try Giordano's Fruit Freeze in SLO! (aka G's Fruit Freeze, aka G's Italian ...

    Mo's Smokehouse BBQ

    0.04 mi from Buona Tavola
    1 review

    There's a lot of debate over which place in SLO serves the best tri-tip barbecue beef sandwich, and I think Mo's is a pretty strong contender. The tri-tip is tender, the BBQ sauce savory and the service usually lightning-fast. Just don't expect it to be super-cheap; you're paying for the famous name.

    Wonderful service, and a bright and airy atmosphere compliment the fresh ingredients and generous portions at Kumi Ko. Prices are just a little bit higher then some of the other places in town, but the portions and service are well worth it. Look for the daily specials and happy hour pricing.

    This place is gorgeous. Large, with plenty of exposed brick, dimly lit, it's a beautiful place to come with friends. And the service was top-notch. Unfortunately, I didn't like the food here. Since it promotes itself as the only restaurant in the area specializing in wine country cuisine, I expected the food to be like what I find in Napa ...

    The service wasn't good. Also it has a college bar vibe which wasn't something I wanted. Food was okay.

    It's just like most Chipotle's, except that this one is conveniently located in downtown SLO. Great for a quick bite to eat while running errands in town, or before/after a movie!

    This is a great little place for fast Greek food. The service is super friendly, and the prices are affordable as most items on the menu are under $10! My only complaint is that it's small seating area really limits your dine-in options, but luckily you can always take it to go!
