My husband wanted to go to a sports bar in San Luis Obispo, and based upon recommendations from friends we went to Firestone Grill! It was great, my husband had a tri tip sandwich and I had a delicious made to order burger! Best burger around! The atmosphere is quite fun with tv's all around and it was such an energetic bar! Loved it!

I've been going to San Luis Obispo so long I remember when this place really was a Firestone Tire store. OK, mark me down as a senior. Now Firestone is a Cal Poly student hangout with lots of good energy. There's both indoor seating (really noisy) and outdoor seating which is the best for most of the year in San Luis Obispo. Keep in mind it's considered a "walk-up" place. You pick up your own order and you bus your own dishes (baskets, really) so be ready. This is not a white-tablecloth place. The tri-tip sandwiches are legendary. I've been here a bunch of times and the tri-tip is always tender and properly cooked. Both the onion rings and fries are great too. I'm guessing the onion rings are the frozen ready-to-go-into-the fryer variety so stick to the fries. Get lots of napkins and some extra BBQ sauce; you're going to need both. The bar has a nice selection beer and (I presume) wine which you have to purchase separately from your meal (I haven't so far). Bring your appetite and be in the mood for some fun and energy. You won't be disappointed. If you're up the road in Cambria try the sister restaurant, the Main St. Grill.

Best tri tip sandwich in central coast!
If you are in SLO and craving some juicy, tender, tri tip, look no further. Located in beautiful Downtown SLO and easy to find. They have lots ont he menu, but trust me, you can't go wrong with the tri tip and onion rings! You will love it! Wash it all downs with a cold Firestone beer, and it's all good........

A perennial favorite of college kids and their parents. Really great food, staff got my order mixed up but all in all a good value and great meal. Tri tip sandwich and steak cobb salad are the best. The restaurants cousin, Doghouse Grill in Fresno is good too, but you can't beat the slo weather

Definitely has a pub feel to it. Food was great and the place was clean. Fries and beer were very good too.
