Great food for the pricing! Bar has sports vibe...in between high end and fast food but the crowds outside and quick turn around after ordering makes this a fine place to catch a quality lunch at low prices with family friendly environment!

The food is awesome, great chicken sandwich and the onion rings are amazing! The lines can be long but seem to move fairly quickly. Oh and the tri tip sandwich is the best ive ever had.

Not a place for a first date, it's too loud for the most part, but really good food, worth waiting for.

Awesome fries... Half chicken was a bit cool (temperature wise) and that made me nervous... But it had great smoke flavor. Fast service, huge portions... I would go again!

Very reasonable prices. Very reasonable portions. Equal very reasonable value! Fun and happening atmosphere where good food and drink is just expected because its been here what seems to be forever. No visit to SLO is complete without the Tri-tip on a buttery bun or the huge Caesar. L-o-n-g out the door lines can form fast but the kitchen is... More

We were in town for CalPoly orientation and looking for a casual restaurant. This one had good online reviews, and we knew we did the right thing when we got there and found a long line on a Sunday night in July. The line moves quickly, and we had no problem finding a table. We had a tri-tip sandwich, a... More

Well, I loved my tri tip sandwich but my wife's pulled pork was disappointing. It was very, very sweet so Firestone scores 4 instead of 5 stars. Other than that it was a great experience, excellent staff and excellent atmosphere. I'd go back for the tri tip in a second!

Food is good. Super busy, TV's everywhere. Great if you want to watch the game. French fries are very good. Outside seating is best as the noise inside is a bit much.

We had a great lunch at Firestone Grill. Wonderful Tri-tip sandwich - they also had pulled pork and many other sandwiches but we were only two people! One Tri Tip would have been enough for my grand-daughter and I because it is so big - I would have ordered one Tri-tip and a size order of onion rings or a... More

Heard from so many how legit the tri tip sandwich is and it lives up to the hype. Incredibly moist, flavorful, great bread, and perfectly balanced with sauce. Relaxed atmosphere, lots of outdoor seating and indoor. Full service bar with inexpensive drinks.
