For year, I've always stopped by this bbq restaurant when I'm in the area. This trip, I came and got my fixings before heading to Oxnard for the night. The flavor and taste is still the same, this place always reminded me of my youth and the great memories of the trips I used to take solo. I'll sure to... More

Rolled into Cambria very hungry and decided to forego "fine dining" for something hearty and simple. The Ortega burger and ABC burger we ordered were cooked just right and were seriously delicious. Cole slaw and draft beer completed the order. We can't wait to visit Main Street Grill next time.

Our extended family spends a week in Cambria each year, and this is the second time we have taken out food from here. Great bar-b-q! So far we've enjoyed the pork ribs, beef ribs, chicken ,fries and salad. All were scrumptious! The portions are huge, and even our large group couldn't eat it all at one sitting, but that didn't...

We arrived in Cambria late and most restaurants are only open till about 8-30pm. We just managed to get in here before it closed. I wasn't expecting much but the food was good and the service was quick.

I first discovered this place about 10 years ago while visiting the Hearst Castle. Since then, every time we travel in the aren, we go there for lunch or dinner. This place is for serious eaters. The portions are really big. I mean the rack of beef ribs of 7 for around $20.00 - who can beat that? Then there... More

I couldn't imagine that such a place could have those delicious hamburgers! After 15 days travelling along the west coast we tried these hamburgers and, in my opinion, they were the best ones. Nice place, nice food and good price! The only thing is that they only serve Pepsy, not Coke...

Here's what $21 bought. Huge cafeteria style joint. See menu, order, wait for your number to be hollered. Listen close. Guest had chowder and side salad. This was her fourth bowl of chowder in Cambria, about the least expensive and rated second best. Not bad. The side salad was huge-- a second meal for home. Two sodas, one size for... More

This place is a cash only destination. That being said...the food is awesome! One of our favorite places in Cambria. We come here often and enjoy the tri tip and onion rings. I'm not a fan of fries but the fries here are well seasoned and well cooked and comes in large portions well worth the money. The tri tip... More
