Where to Earn Your Eat Local Bonus

Posted January 23, 2024

Say hello to SLO’s tastiest annual tradition, the Eat Local Bonus. (Or maybe “welcome back!”) Every January, the City and SLO Chamber team up to reward residents and travelers alike for dining at local restaurants. It’s the perfect excuse to eat and drink your way through San Luis Obispo while enjoying the mild Central Coast winter weather.

Earning your bonus is simple. The hard part? Deciding where you’ll dine. This year, we’re excited to hold the first-ever SLO Restaurant Week! Our city is jam-packed with cool, cozy and oh-so-classy cuisine options. In fact, in just one day, you can brunch by a burbling creek, nosh at a Michelin-recognized restaurant and raise a glass at bars bursting with live music and good vibes. 

It’s just another delicious part of living the SLO life. To help you get started, here are nine unique edible experiences you won’t want to miss during your stay.

There’s more to see, do and taste in San Luis Obispo. Experience more signature SLO dining by booking your stay near downtown’s most iconic restaurants, or head out to the countryside for farm-fresh eats and exploration. Just be sure to share your favorite flavors with #ShareSLO.
