Good Pub Fare but great beer

Across the driveway from the Firestone tasting room is the Grill. The food is good not great but what an atmosphere. The selection of available brews is great and the Library bottles are worth the cost. After tasting wines all day it is good to have an alternative to ore wine.

It had been almost 5 years since we visited SLO and the first place we came back to eat at was Firestone. I missed the trip tip sandwich dearly and it was everything I remembered it to be!!! So tasty and so easy to eat. Not tough like so many other trip tip sandwiches I've had over the years. Fries... More

I don't know what all the fuss is about regarding their tri-tip steak. It had NO taste. It must have been frozen for a long time and quick-thawed. I've had similar steaks elsewhere which were good but I have no idea how this place got the reputation for being the best in town. Otherwise, over-priced, noisey, crowded, no service to... More

We were on a road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles and decided to stop at the Firestone Grill for lunch and a break from driving. We had seen good reviews on other sites and thought we would give it a try. This is a restaurant for the casual diner who wants to fill up. You order from a... More

On a college tour trip. My group wanted BBQ. Was recommended this place by the front desk of our hotel. We were not disappointed. Went on a Thursday night. It is Farmers market night. Downtown is alive with activity. This restaurant is at the far end of the market. The line was far out the door. Went surprisingly fast. You... More

We got given a recommendation to go here as somewhere which does quick, but tasty food. We were not disappointed, I had a salad, which was more than ample to fill me up, and tasty too. Careful of the speed at which they call your number, it was so incomprehensible it was amusing! This bar clearly has a lot of... More

This is One Busy place, however the food is very good. A highly recommended restaurant in San Luis by those that live there.

Love the food and that we got it quick, but it was a bit chaotic inside. Outside would be a little better, but maybe to go is a better option.

You order, grab a table outside and enjoy all the flavors of a good BBQ. Everything tastes great! The line is long, but don't let that despair you from trying because they are super fast, . I tried everyone's food at the table and we all left with full bellies.

Wonderful, tender Tri-tip sandwich! Onion rings are fabulous! Must try! The atmosphere is upbeat and fun. They know how to turn out the good food here!
