Often voted the"best" Chinese restaurant on the Central Coast, the food is more old fashioned than gourmet. The ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT buffet provides you dozens of options. Their soups are excellent - their ribs are good - where else can you find crab legs [not always], mussels, fish, sushi and jello along with the other "Chinese" options? Pleasant wait staff. Dine-in, takeout or delivery.
Luncheon buffet usually offers tandoori chicken, vegetables, raita, dal, naan, coconut pudding, salad, etc. - all you can eat. You can also order off the dinner menu. Beer and wine. Good service. Parking lot.
Authentic Thai cuisine. Try their pad thai or the panang fish or other curries [you can choose th heat level] for the more adventurous. Indoors or outdoors. Attentive service. Very reasonable for lunch.
B L or D. Quaint early 50's small diner, with some outside seating. Vareity of "comfort" foods. Friendly service.
Old-fashioned "diner" - probably the best breakfast in SLO. Ordinary building, but locally popular.
Great variety of "modern" food - well prepared - good service - the outside patio makes for a nice experience.
One of the best seafood restaurants in the County. Try their signature "no-work" ciopinot where the broth is excellent, and all the shells have been removed. No corkage fee if you BYOB but they do have a wine list. Variety of oysters, steaks, fish, desserts. Attentive service in a nice building.
A neighborood market - carries almost everything, but a smaller selection. Often their produce is below the chain store prices. Their deli is especially nice with quality sandwiches [or by the pound] made to order. Owner is very pleasant and accommodating
A cross between a chain and a mom & pop. Virtually everything from fresh produce [some organic], flowers, a fish counter, deli counter, baked goods, fresh made sushi, a DVD movie kiosk, Western Union, dry ice and propane tanks - everything you would expect in a grocery store - open seven days.
