We've been to Rancho Nipomo many times. I usually order their pulled pork sandwich (my favorite) or a burger. They have great burgers. They have expanded and made a cantina where you can eat, drink, and listen to music in the space next to the deli with a passageway between. In our most recent visit, I saw the tri-tip enchiladas...

Rancho Nipomo has is a great place to bring your family or to meet friends for a beer. Their food is a mix of traditional mexican and bbq specialties and sandwhiches. They also have local entertainment in their adjacent beer bar on week nights and weekends. Makes for a fun place to meet and hang out with friends.

I am so in love with this restaurant. I NEVER write reviews, but this place ROCKS!!!! The chili verde enchiladas are to die for. The portion of this dish is giant. You could easily share or have lunch for the next day. The staff was exceptional too. I wished I lived closer so I would be able to visit more... More

Rancho Nipomo has great food. I was surprised the first time we went there as it out of the beaten path but the food was good and service is fast. We ordered Mexican food and loved the salsa bar. There is seating inside and outside, so fun to eat out on a nice day.

I really didn't want to rate this restaurant because I don't want it to get over crowded so I'm really doing it for the owner and the food. The owner is a super guy and the food is AWESOME. They have the BEST Chili Verde and Pulled Pork I have ever had. This is a Must Eat At restaurant. Go... More

Pretty much rocks! The pork ribs are super yum. Homemade BBQ sauce should come with a straw, it's so good. The service is great and prices are reasonable.
