This sunny cafe in the Uptown district is the bakery where those famous sourdough bread bowls for clam chowder down at the Pismo Beach branch get made. It's cleanier and cozier than the Pismo location, and it's a handy stop for breakfast pastries and coffee or a healthy deli-style lunch. Go antique shopping nearby after you've had a bite, or ...Popular withFoodiesLocalTrendsters
Hard to explain about the vibe here. Sometimes it is chilled and sometimes it can get out of control. It varies. Black Sheep brings me back memories of my 21st. Let's just say they serve you some interesting birthday shots. If you're looking for a bar to take your 21st year old friend, should try Black Sheep Bar. They serve ...Popular withLocalFoodiesNightlife
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.Popular withStudentsBudgetFamilies
On your tour of SLO County brewpubs, you've got to stop here. Can't really speak for the food, which we only tried after they first opened, but we often meet friends here for a pint of espresso porters and a chat at the open-air tables on the patio out back overlooking the creek. A great place to just hang for ...Popular withStudents
Asian/Mediterranean/Southwest fusion for under $10! Not every menu item is a winner, but most offerings are pretty tasty. Located in the trendy part of downtown SLO, Mondeo Pronto is good place to grab a bite to eat before a movie, or as a break from exploring the many shops and boutiques in the area.
When you're out and about in San Luis Obispo and are looking for a quick bite, stop by the Crushed Grape (located in the Madonna Plaza) and try one of their delicious deli sandwiches. Once you are there make your way past the outdoor patio, and step inside to find a sandwich counter lost amongst a wide array of fun ...
Don't get me wrong, I don't not like this place, but it's not a place I really enjoy. It's like a space in a small town that's trying to be like super fancy clubs in big cities (think a side sitting room in a Vegas club) with all the lights and couches and (here's the pincher...) very expensive drinks. For ...
You know what SLO really needs? A place serving NY-style pizza, Philly grinders and Italian ice -- the whole East Coast food-works experience. But after trying this place twice, It doesn't much remind me of food from back when I lived east of Mississippi. It's more like Californicized take-out food for students, and nothing I've tasted here has stood out ...
