SLO Restaurants to Give You A Taste of the SLO Life

There’s more to discover – and eat, drink and nibble, and toast – in San Luis Obispo. Fill your plate or glass with tasty treats for breakfast, lunch and dinner (or anytime).

Restaurants in SLO for Every Occasion

It’s not just about finding the best restaurants in San Luis Obispo – it’s also about how to eat all the can’t-miss, only-in-SLO dishes you’ll find on local menus.

Find a cozy creekside table for two at international fusion restaurant Novo, or tuck into authentic-style fish tacos at Luna Red. Bring the whole group to casual downtown SLO restaurants like Old San Luis BBQ or Firestone Grill, or let Mee Heng Low Noodle House transport your taste buds in Historic Chinatown. End the night just right at the award-winning Black Sheep Bar and Grill (known for their extensive mac n’ cheese menu) with live music.

Most of all, never feel limited. Gluten-free, vegan and alternative options like Bliss Café and Seeds are a hit with health-conscious locals. And if you’re feeling indulgent, why not treat yourself to a slice of pink champagne cake at the Madonna Inn? (Be sure to ask for the wine list, too!)

Wineries and Vineyards

Cool climate wine varietals like pinot noirs and chardonnays flourish here on the Central Coast, and over 250 San Luis Obispo County wineries offer endless ways to taste and experience. Minutes from downtown SLO, the SLO Coast Wine Region is home to some of the finest family-owned wineries as well as larger scale productions. Visit the tasting rooms at Biddle Ranch Vineyard and Tolosa Winery, go for a tour at Chamisal Vineyards or enjoy an outdoor picnic at Claiborne and Churchill Winery.

Breweries and Beyond

Looking for something with a little more hops than grapes? Visit any San Luis Obispo brewery for the best craft brews in the area. Local hotspots include Central Coast Brewing, SLO Brew Rock and Barrelhouse Brewing Co.
