Best place to eat meat at slo

The atmosphere of the place is very cool. The tri tip sandwich and the pork ribs meal are the best of the house. The monster sandwich are very disappointing to me. I prefer, undoubtedly, Habit across the street.

Ate lunch here with my family. I had the Southwestern salad. Very good, filling and tasty. My husband had the tri tip it was also tasty. They had choices for kids as well. Prices very reasonable and even though it was super busy the food came out quick. Servers were also super friendly and quick. Careful though they run out... More

No one can touch the excellence of Firestone's Tri-Tip sandwich. No one. Everything on the menu is excellent -- from salads, burgers, sides, but especially BBQ. Ribs are heavenly. We visit the Grill every time we go to SLO and have been known to drive 2 1/2 hours just to get a Tri Tip. Truth! Nothing like it anywhere.

This place clearly was a great place to eat by the mile long line out the door. Yes, it was lunch time, but even so the line was really long. It was fairly quick to get through the line though because they got extra cashiers, but the place was packed so it was hard to even find a place to... More

If you want the best barbecue tri-tip sandwich and onion rings Firestone Grill is the place to go!! Their hamburgers and fries are delicious too! Fun atmosphere for dining outdoors!

Been here several times for the large outdoor seating and with groups. It's great for those reasons, and because everyone can find something to eat. The bummer is the food products lack flavor without all the sauces. It's fairly greasy, too. It's the kind of place to grab grub and take in the SLO sunshine, when one is craving a... More

I ordered the Hal-A-Peno burger. My wife ordered a half Firestone salad and we shared basket of fries. Bottom-line, for SLO, it was just good. My burger was cold. I think it started out with a 1/3 pound patty and it was probably fine but they put all the great wholesome stuff on it and I think that brought the... More

the pulled pork sandwich is delish! Generous portions, good selection of beer on tap and reasonably priced. It's a bit noisy, but there is an outside patio for a more relaxing meal.

This is one of the best places to get a tri tip sandwich. I have tried a few other places,but it was the same. The fries are also good.
