“Inexpensive Good Food for the Younger Crowd”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Good BBQ sandwich at a reasonable price, in very informal surroundings: order at the counter, go sit at a table, wait for your number to be announced over a very loud speaker system. A much better choice than fast food chains, but not a sit-down restaurant. We still cannot understand how a fish taco can be served on a flour tortilla, and they seemed surprised that my gluten-intolerant wife wanted the toppings scraped off so she could eat them - without the corn tortilla, which they could not provide. The fish was good, though, so I have given a very good rating since it is what it is, and we knew that when we saw it.

“Wow!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Delicious BBQ. Had the pork rib meal and the fries. The fries are seasoned. The ribs are served with BBQ beans, garlic bread and 7 pork ribs. The ribs are cooked perfectly and served with a tasty BBQ sauce. Most places will serve thinly cut ribs but firestone's ribs have a significant amount on them. Crazy delicious!

“Good food with great patio seating (with vegetarian options)”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

This restaurant seems to be very popular... the patio was sunny and all the tables were full for Saturday lunch, with a line out the door for ordering. Once you are in line, though, it moves fast... the preparation is fast-paced, and we did not have to wait too long after ordering. The vegetarians in our party tried the veggie burger and the avocado veggie sandwich; both were excellent. Their fries were good too, with a nice savory seasoning. Were were in town to visit Cal Poly, and there were many students eating and working there. Fun atmosphere!

“Good Place to watch a game”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This place is a fun place to watch a game on the weekend. Many TVs with lots of menu choices. It is a loud place, so keep that in mind.

“No other way around it... best sandwiches and burgers!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

The place is very casual and it is self service. It is very loud and people come and go quite often. This all has a very simple reason: Food is amazing! It is the best Tri-Tip I have EVER eaten.... really I had never seen or tasted anything like it. It was straight out of the Food Network good... Portions are enormous as well! A MUST when in SLO!
