I was here for the annual (I think?) Picnic at Pozo concert. Driving out here is almost like being in the middle of nowhere. You're in ranch country. I overheard there's another way to get in that's easier but I just stuck with the long winding road from coast. It can get dusty up there and you definitely wanna bring... More

We had a wonderful time . Water was available if you had you own bottle it saved me money, also kept me hydrated.. We brought our lawn chairs, and umbrella for shade from the 100 degree temp. We wished Marshall Tucker cam on earlier. Understanding ahead of time that they need the customers to spend on food and drinks so... More

3 weeks prior to International Women's Ride Day 50+/- lunches were requested for our group. The night before our lunch I was told that they would be closed. Luckily a local restaurant served us wonderful food and we had a great time. Will never plan an event here and it is being boycotted by the local women's riding group!

I wasn't disappointed here, but I wasn't thrilled, either. It was a slow Saturday when we arrived at about 12:30. We were promptly greeted and seated in the dining room near the back door which leads to the concert stage area. Service was somewhat above average, but less than stellar. My wife and I each ordered the tri-tip sandwich. She... More

We drove the very pleasant 15 miles or so from Santa Margarita, CA, to Pozo with a lot of anticipation of a good Saturday sandwich and we weren't disappointed. Pozo is close to, well, almost nowhere but this establishment has the uncanny ability to attract top Country Western talent for regular concerts in a large grassy field behind the restaurant....

We made the long drive to Pozo Saloon in Santa Margarita and were pleased with their burgers. It's a beautiful drive on the road to Pozo Saloon. There are only 4 or 5 choices for beer from what I could see but may be wrong. I believe they're only open on Saturday and Sunday, at least during this time of... More

It's not a short drive to Pozo. But lots of people come from all around to the Pozo Saloon's concerts. This is California's version of Luckenbach, Texas. Old wooden buildings out in the middle of nowhere. Just make sure you don't drink too much. Maybe you should bring a designated driver, or you won't find you way back to Hwy... More

I love the atmosphere. I have been to several concerts there and it is great to be out of doors listening to great music and people watching.

This is a destination spot. Only open on weekends. They have great music and it is a great venue for bands. Food in good and the Pozo Martini is a Must (beer in a quart jar with an olive) The area has a great history and there is plenty Biking and hiking around
