This place is the real deal! Very good and healthy food. Not very expensive! Would like to try one of everything next time we are in town!

We were on our way out of town after lunch and we decided to come here. Right near downtown but no meter parking and no long walks to the front door. They have an extensive selection of beverages (beers, juices, soda, waters etc). We had Lamb shawarma just like Ironman at the end of The Avengers. We had a pizza,... More

A higher quality pizza than chain locations. You might pay a little more but we enjoyed it. Average to low average in the atmosphere. Located on the edge of town, had to walk past a couple dicey areas to get there. Seating is average college town.

We came here during a drive up the PCH and it really hit the spot. We decided to be adventurous and try the Gyro Pizza, and it did not disappoint. We also had the Lamb Shawarma, which was excellent. They also have an interesting beer selection. I tried the chocolate beer, which wasn't exactly my taste. Overall, the location is... More

Petra is a great family owned Mediterranean restaurant in San Luis that provides authentic taste, fresh ingredients and a friendly atmosphere. Upon arriving they provide you with a free fresh baked pita sample as you scan over their menu. Their pizza and shawarma are delicious. Also have a great happy hour with plenty of tables for large groups of people.... More

We went here with our son for the post game/performance gathering for the Cal Poly SLO Marching Band. Unfortunately because they had over 200 band members hit the restaurant all at once it took a while. The restaurant is set-up like a casual restaurant where you get in line to order your food but they bring your order to the... More

Somewhat ordinary kabob chicken (a little dry) and beef (a little tough) at average price. The service was very friendly, free samples, clean seating, many beers on tap or in a chiller. There are good happy-hour beer prices. The pizza looked better but i didn't try it.

Fast service and food with excellent quality in Greek pizza and all the other Med stuff. The counter staff really understand what good customer service means. Cops eat there is you know it's good cheap food served fast.

Pre and post-rennovations/expansion, this place has been a great haven for good Mediterranean food on the Central Coast. Authentic food made by a family from the area, but had to knock them a star because their menu is starting to edge towards typical American style food...standard pizzas, etc. and their pricing is still just a touch higher than it should...
