If you are in, or passing through the Five Cities area and are in the mood for a steak, this is the place to stop at. This is an excellent restaurant with a Western motiff. Pull up a chair, sit and enjoy!
The old "general store" atmosphere of the gift shop will take you back to the turn of the century.
Favorite Dish: Filet Mignon and Lobster...Mmmmmm.
If you are driving down or up the highway 1 or the 101 ... you must make a quick stop and have something at the Old Vienna in Pismo (CA). The town itself is like a sufing kind of town... nice and cool... but this place is something different.
They have a small but good selection of German beers, and since they are Germans... they know what they are talking about.
Favorite Dish: In my case... I only stop by to have a beer (although I ended up having more than one)... but they gave me a couple of pretzels with some fresh mustard. They were unbelievable!! Delicious! The best pretzels I've ever had!! They were right off the oven... awesome stuff!
I didn't eat 'cauce I just wanted to get to LA... but their menu looked great!
The Splash Cafe right in the middle of the strip has, hands down, the best Clam Chowder I have ever tasted. I can have a bowl and it fills me up like dinner!. The chowder is served in these breaded bowls which you can eat afterwards. Huge portions and priced right. The servers are hot, classic california babes. My oh my!
Setting is at the pier at Port San Luis. Outdoors. Protected by the wind. Very friendly staff. Hands down best Bacon and Avacado Omlette, or Pork and salsa verde Omlette. Mimosas. Being a breakfast fanatic, this one is my all time fav. Stroll down on the pier after breakfast and watch some sealions. A very memorable experience.
World famous Clam Chowder Served in the Original Sourdough Bread Bowl, Fresh Steamed Clams, Fish and Chips, Burgers, Dogs, Calamari and Lots More! Take Out Available. Nothing on the Menu Over $5.75.
~Small, clean, noisey, fun. Mmmmm Delicious food!
Favorite Dish: Calamari and Chips :)
