We were trying to get dinner ideas and while visiting Red Soles Winery, they told about Nino's Bar & Grill. We were pleasantly pleased. We were greeted by Iveth. She had a killer smile and was very nice. She led us to our table. Shortly...More

The grilled salmon salad had great greens, tomatoes, cukes and feta, but the star of the show, the grilled salmon, was very dry and overcooked. The table next to me ordered the same thing and I noticed that her salmon came the same way. Too...More

Looking for a place to get an early dinner. The food was great, very tasty and hot. Service was ok but a little slow as there was only one waitress for the whole restaurant. Quiet relaxing atmosphere for a bar.

Our party of four had a very good early dinner at Nino's Grill. The high points included the trip-tip sandwich, with a good portion of lean and relatively tender meat. The Philly Cheese Steak sandwich was less pleasing - - too much of a spicy...More

A friendly, comfortable restaurant in an old building on Main Street in Templeton. Beer, wine and appetizers are $2 off during Happy Hour. The draft beer selection is not as broad as it is in many of the local spots, but it covers most of...More

Having navigated Highway 46 from the coast, we were looking for a BBQ joint once we hit 101. TripAdvisor gave this place as an option. 3 miles later we were sitting and ordering tri-tip and pulled pork sandwiches. Both were fine in quality and quantity....More

Was really surprised that the bar was fun atmosphere, cool people, and good bartender. The menu items were tasty and will definitely come back. Good place to watch a football game with fellow game lovers. Had the Bloody Mary, which I seldom do, and it...More

We were coming off a wine tasting journey - and didn't want to get stuck with just a regular sandwich. Our meal was around 2pm - so we missed the lunch crowd, and had a nice spot on the patio. I chose the tri-tip sandwich,...More

Nino's Grill was created when Steve Nino saw the need in Templeton, not only for great food, but for a place that families, sports fans, and sports teams could come to have a great time. Live music every Friday and Saturday. Thanks to "Old Hickory Pits" are meats all get an extra flavor beyond the standard BBQ. We chose this particular smoker after much research guaranteeing a unique flavor no one can beat. We take the extra care and time to ensure our Tri-Tip, Baby Back Ribs, Chicken, Pullled Pork, and Brisquit come out full of flavor and never dry. Besides our smoked meats we have Ahi Tuna, Salmon, Burgers, and T-Dogs. We offer all this in fabulous sandwiches, salads, and dinner plate choices. Our dressings and sauces are made from scratch after many trials to bring forth perfect flavoring. We pride ourselves in offering a variety of menu items for every taste bud with no confusion or ingredients you've never heard off. Our philosophy is that simple good food allows a comfort for our customers.
