Very busy, but fast services and good food; the salads are huge and the tri trip sandwiches are delicious..items served on paper products; no table ordering service, but that's ok, the value is worth the low overhead...parents of students at the local university LOVE this place! Worth the short wait in line to order food.

Stopped here after a Cal Poly football game. The restaurant was packed, the line was fairly long, but no problem - this place is used to crowds and getting food out hot and quick. The four of us ordered the tri-tip along with fries and onion rings. Portions were generous and delicious! Enjoy sports on the numerous big screen TV's... More

This is a top place in our book for BBQ. The service was fast and the food was great. It has big screen TV's for sports so it is loud inside but outside they have heaters for cool evenings.

Wow! I have not a had a tri-tip sandwich that was as good as this. The meat was perfectly cooked and it seemed to melt in your mouth. The tri-tip was well seasoned, cooked to perfection with some a wonderful tasting BBQ sauce on a roll. The fries and onion rings were also tasty, and the portions were more than... More

Usually very busy, but the line moves fast. The tri-tip salad is huge so I get a half. Actually everything is on the mark good for fast, grill, bar food. Good place to take new-to-town friends. Lots of TV’s in bar area, although you won’t hear them. Loud and crowded on Thursday – Farmer’s market day in SLO. Outside patio... More

The meal was excellent with hearty portions. I loved the BBQ sauce, and did ask for extra to smother my tri-tip in. Don't be discouraged with the line out the door and down the block. It actually moves quickly.

Oct 10, 2014. Stopped in for dinner and ran into a long line and packed restaurant. Decided to stick it out and were floored at how fast the line moved and the food was ready. College town, high volume restaurant with good noise, good vibe, casual, ridiculously popular and good food. Portions are enormous and not expensive. Well worth the... More

Not a secret by any means, crazy busy and for good reason. Get the large tip salad to go and take it pool side. Get there before 12noon or find yourself wrapped out to the sidewalk on line
