This is a ghetto, hole in the wall, dive bar that is totally out of the way of the strip. Not a college hang out at all, but the locals, I am sure enjoy it. The drinks are cheap though, so that was good. The people were very nice as well.

"I love this bar...its my kind of place..." that is how i would describe Bulls. Look around, look up and you can see all the people that have spent their college years there. Not only that but locals for the past 30 years spend their nights at the same stool at the same bar, listening to the great juke box which has recently been replaced and updated. If you are turning twenty one you have to come by and take your bull sweat, its a tradition we've all done it. Or if you want to try bar tending guest bar tending is on Tuesday nights and all are welcome...Come by and carve your name in and let us know you were here.

It is a drinkers bar. If you want to fight, don't go. It's the best place to pick up chicks at 1:40 a.m. in all of SLO. Don't go to any other bars or pizza places at 1:40 a.m. looking for love, go to Bulls. The trolls "ladies" of CPSLO stop by there after a night of boozing and failing to secure a man/boy for the night at other establishments. They cruise by Bulls, say something incredibly drunk and loud, and off they go with the first random dude in Bulls. Like shooting fish in a barrell. Good times. Order a BULLS SWEAT if it's your first time there or it's your birthday. Then, never, never, never ever order a BULLS SWEAT again. Ladies have also been know to perform mock strip dance moves on the bar and tables between midnight and last call. Flashing is contagious there also. Once it starts, everyone joins in. Best time to go is early and late. Play Ring of Fire on the Juke Box, everyone will love you. A must on Thursday nights.

Bulls is a bar born in the 70's and has survived every interior design boom relatively unscathed. With the exception of some new flooring 15 years back and the frat boy ceiling tiles, it's still the real deal; reliable for cheap beer, loud music and the occasional fight. The bathrooms are classic dive ... thirty years as the low point drain for a bar sporadically famous for the beer slides and you'll realize why cowboys wear boots.

Next to bubblegum alley Bulls is a must see to believe attraction.

This place is exactly what you would envision a dive bar to be like. Its small, and old, and smells like fermenting booze!! They have an old juke box and the ceiling is decorated with bras, matchbooks and all kinds of different decor....quite funny. The drinks are super afordable, and they actually sell cigarettes over the counter. The best part of the bar is the DUI test machine, you get a straw and put .50 cents in the machine and blow....hahaha

Pros: Affordable drinks

Cons: Small and a little grungy

Bulls is awesome. It's as simple as that. Classic dive bar turned popular, however they didn't change anything and still maintain the "we don't really care" attitude. Drinks are strong and reasonably priced and the clientele are as varied as the music being played. Everyone from college kids to cowboys can be found here and the crowds range from empty to 20min wait out the door, depending on the night. Drink specials are rare but something to look for (usually good deals on domestic draft beers). The bathrooms are horrible and I would avoid them at all costs (walk across the street to Mission Grill to use theirs!). The bartenders are all a lot of fun and make things interesting. I'd highly recommend ordering a bull sweat for yours or your friend's birthday and watch the fun start!

I grew up in San Luis but left for college. However, whenever I am back in town I make a point to hit Bull's. Big, strong, cheap drinks. Grungy bathrooms. Occasional fights. What's not to love?

If you want a fun bar to go to, this is the place. It is definitely not an upscale bar but you definitely will have a good time. Fun people and fast service.
