This location is an offshoot of the SLO branch. It is okay, average, and unremarkable. Those in the party who ordered the Happy Hour samplers were much more happy than those who ordered off the menu. The place on a Monday afternoon was understaffed and the food was overpriced. Avoid the tri-tip tacos-dry and fatty. Tri-tip and pork sliders were... More

Casual atmosphere. Food is good with a nice variety. Full meals, some snack style makes for a nice choice. Service is good. Only drawback, it can be a little noisey.

Rib Line recently started serving breakfast on Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 am - 11:00 am. This is a MUST HAVE when visiting the area. I have been there a few times and everything I've tried has been amazing. You have to try The Tubby - when they say it's the ultimate brunch burger they mean it. A burger topped... More

This location just began serving breakfast on weekends only. I'm so glad to have been there. The staff is outstanding, & the food is a treat to the tastebuds. The cinnamon/honey butter on their pancakes will ruin you for pancakes anywhere else. Scrambled eggs were cooked just right & the country potatoes have great flavor. They do serve alcohol at...

We had heard from some neighbors about this place and decided to give it a try. We both ordered the baby back ribs, which were tasty and had a tasty sauce. Unfortunately, I'm the sort of person who likes a lot of sauce and it wasn't present. Most rib places have extra sauce right on the table. Not this one.... More

I love slow cooked meat, so after a google search this place came up. It had featured on man vs food so this was a must try place that we needed to visit before we set off for San Francisco. The staff were friendly and the menu was huge... probably a bit too much going on but hey you can't... More

I have been here several times hoping it would improve, but it only gets worse. At 5:00 PM out of Ice Tea, tables are dirty and service is slow. Portions are inconsistent and chewy. Priced too high. Have stopped going. We drive 15 miles to go to the Friestone Grill in SLO.
