“Great place to grab a quick bite to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

If you are in downtown SLO and don't feel like going to a formal restaurant, this is a great place to grab a bite of eat. Excellent sandwiches and HUGE baskets of fries. The inside eating area has TVs, and there is a giant outside eating area. This area overlooks Higuera Street and is a good place to watch the surroundings. Casual, fun environment similar to a FuddRuckers. Great value!

“If you like Dog House in Fresno, come here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012 via mobile

This is almost identical to the Dog House Grill in Fresno. Good food, excellent tri-tip sandwiches. Bar is good and the outside patio is a nice place to sit.... If you can find a seat. It was a Saturday but this place gets very busy... Reflection of good food and decent price probably.

“Fun atmosphere, huge servings and excellent sandwiches!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

This place was packed out but, I can see why the atmosphere was casual but fun. There was plenty of outdoor seating. The sandwich was was a very generous size, enough for 2 people. Most important was ... the pulled pork sandwich was so good.

“Select a Sexy Beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Wow, this place is happening! The minute you walk in Firestone Grill says fun. You can sit at the bar or at a table. The beers are all thirst quenching and flavorful. The food is fun and tasty. Great place to come with a date or a bunch of friends. It's cool and it's sexy.

“Follow the college kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Great basic food and lots of it. The meat filled tri tip sandwich is plenty for two people. The $3.99 beef taco is huge and flavorful. We stopped for lunch on a long drive from LA to San Francisco. On the main street and a nice place to stretch your legs and grab a bite to eat in a pretty location.
