Ok. It's a burger joint . . . like no other! Burgers are big and juicy with variety t spare. Onion rings are from softball sized onions. Milkshakes are ridiculously good and the "Not Your Dad's Rootbeer Float" is dangerous. And the clam chowder? Seriously. It's served with shrimp on top! Yep. This one is a repeater. Did I mention it is a block from the beach? Perfect!

My Gorgeous Wife and I were heading from San Francisco to LA and chose to stop at Pismo Beach for the night.

We needed accomodation so we headed for the centre of town and duly found some excellent lodgings and after checkin we headed to the bar for a cleansing ale.
We received some recommendations from the hotel staff but none really resonated with us so we decided to take a stroll through town and make a decision on the run.

After perusing most of the options and with both of us loving the Mexican fare that we had been enjoying on our trip we reverted to default mode and chose Cool Cat Cafe which listed these on their menu and by chance was also one of the busiest joints if not the busiest in Pismo.

Cool Cat Cafe is a mix of diner, bar and restaurant, tastefully decorated with a choice of booths or tables with the option to sit at the bar.
As with most places we visited in The USA there are multiple TV's dotted around the premises so you can keep track of your favourite team over a beer.

Our waitress Destiny was excellent and suggested some delicious wine to enjoy and guided us with portion sizes for our meal .... they are as we were warned before we came to The US ... huge in comparison to Australia.

Our AH Trouble Wine at $8 a glass was excellent value and generous servings.
The Fish Taco ($13) and Blackened Taco ($16) were both fabulous and probably some of the best we had on our trip.

We left Cool Cat Cafe after having demolished some great food and beverage, complimented with some slick and friendly service, confirming in our minds that there is nothing quite like a really well cooked taco washed down with fine wine.

Highly recommended.

We stopped in to get a drink and some dinner. The area has several restaurants, but only a few have a bar and sell drinks. The service was excellent, many locals coming and going. I had their classic burger, very tasty, abundance of fries. The prices are reasonable including drinks.

daughter and husband chose this place because they wanted burgers and a livelier atmosphere than we found at a couple other places in downtown Pismo Beach. Service was good. Shakes were awesome but not cheap. Burger was very good as were the onion rings. Nothing outstanding, but better than average hence the rating given. It did meet our expectations so we were not disappointed with the choice. Service was quick too.
