I had the full rack of ribs and a side order of fries (enormous side order of fries) and boy oh boy was it good! Ask for extra BBQ sauce on any order that you get. The quality of the meet here is superb!! The line might be long so I suggest you get there early!! A must visit if... More

We really like going to Firestone Grill. The food is very good! We have tried the Tri-tip Steak Sandwich, Steak Cobb Salad, Chicken and can't forget the fries and onion rings. This is a very popular place and downtown with all the shops. This place is friendly and fun. it can have lines out the door. There is outdoor patio... More

Yes this is a sports bar and noisy but the tri-tip sandwich is top-notch. Very tasty. Great ranch beans. Generous basket of fries. Skip the onion rings. Fast service -- order at the counter, get a number, get your food very quickly thereafter. Line out the door at lunch. Patio seating outdoors available.

I split the tri-tip sandwich with my friend, along with a side of onion rings and fries. This is more than enough to eat. It very delicious. On a good day eat outside on their outdoor patio and watch the world walk by. Their salads look good too. Very casual. I have had their beer, but only for dinner. Very... More

This is a bifurcated restaurant with a very large patio where it seems most of San Luis Obispo has sat at one time ore another. After avoiding this place for two years, I took a chance on a rainy day and had to sit inside (the other half of the bifurcation), which is your typical college-age setup, with a bar... More

If you are in SLO and have not had a "Tri Tip" sandwich at Firestone, you are missing out. The fries are wonderful, and the patio outside is a great place to eat and watch the world go by. There are lot's of tv's with every sport but soccer. For some reason, they refuse to play soccer--which is the only... More

This is a "go to" place to eat for Cal Poly students and their families. Good burgers and fries. Very crowded and noisy. Recommended.

I had visited this place a couple of times in College and wanted to stop here as I drove down Highway 1...I was unprepared for how amazing it really is! The line is constantly out the door, and yet the staff is so capable and well organized that orders are taken and delivered very quickly. I had the "monster burger"--a... More

My wife drags me here every time we get to town (SLO graduate). Can't say that it takes very much arm twisting.. The tri tip is great - though I will warn you that they serve it w/ a BBQ sauce spread on the french bread - and I am a HUGE fan of the Santa Maria salsa for tri-tip.... More
