Have been coming here whenever I visit the area over a number of years and it’s definitely one of the the must visit places to eat. Killer burgers, sandwiches, fries and onion rings. I tried the pig sandwich for the first time and wasn’t disappointed....More

I really liked the seasoning on the fries (buyer be ware, the 'basket' of fries can generally serve a family of 4). The burgers we're tasty and the 'Monster Burger' (double patties & double cheese) lived up to it's name. The Asian Chicken Salad was...More

Popular spot to eat and then some. On a busy corner so you don't miss any of the action downtown SLO. And you can keep your eye on Woodstocks Pizza across the street. Inside Firestones is the Sports bar with 87 TV's and the crazies...More

We both ordered a Tri-Tip sandwich apiece and a basket of onion rings to share. Big mistake, as there was way too food. The Tri-Tip was piled high and delicious. I would recommend buying one sandwich and sharing it. At $10, the sandwich is a...More

Split a tri-tip sandwich and a basket of fries and it was plenty. Great tri-tip and sauce! Basket of fries was enormous. Another in our group had chicken strips and onion rings. Said they were good but she’d had better. Order at counter and pick...More

Students attending Cal Poly are so fortunate to have such a great eatery nearby. The tri-tip steak sandwich is the best! The meat is tender, there's just the right amount of BBQ sauce, and the bread is nicely toasted. My mouth is watering just writing...More

We were starving when we made it to SLO and decided to try this place since it was close to Downtown. Very casual and busy! Once you walk in there is a huge board (menu) and you order at the register and pick up your...More
