Firestone Grill is a SLO fixture. Great burgers, tri tip and pulled pork sandwiches, and huge salads. Great variety of beers too. Sit outside in the sun with your dog, or by the patio heaters on chilly days. The basket of fries is enough for...More

The tri tip sandwich is a must at Firestone grill. It is huge though and you can easily share it with someone. The basket of fries was more than enough for 3-4 people.

Large portions. Eat outside if weather permits. You place your order. Get a number. Pay for order. When ready your number is called and you pick it up. Only problem might be finding a place to park.

A must visit SLO institution. Worth a wait but lines move quickly. The burgers are great and I enjoyed my salad.

I really liked the seasoning on the fries (buyer be ware, the 'basket' of fries can generally serve a family of 4). The burgers we're tasty and the 'Monster Burger' (double patties & double cheese) lived up to it's name. The Asian Chicken Salad was...More

Popular spot to eat and then some. On a busy corner so you don't miss any of the action downtown SLO. And you can keep your eye on Woodstocks Pizza across the street. Inside Firestones is the Sports bar with 87 TV's and the crazies...More
