“It's worth the "Tri" tip!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

I'm 81 years old, needless to say I've eaten a LOT of food over my lifetime. Go here for the tri-tip sandwich! The waiter was friendly the price is reasonable and I will definitely go back again!

“Deliciously tender tri tip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

"YUM" the tri tip sandwich was tender, full of flavor and served on a tasty grilled roll with a hint of garlic. It was so moist I put only a smidge of sauce on it. The Grill Hut is a friendly, family owned restaurant just off the highway. If you're near Morro Bay or passing through, don't miss it! Very good value for the quality of food.

“Dissapointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

Yikes! Wonderful service, awful food. Unfortunately the name and the menu are a bit deceiving, as there is NOTHING grilled or BBQ at all. It's all smoked...a lot.
My husband had the tri tip dinner. He received about 3 ounces of extremely overcooked and dry meat . I had the chicken dinner and it was so overdone that it was mushy and flavorless as if it had been boiled. My friend had the tri tip salad and and said it was like eating soft beef jerky. Her husband had the rib eye which appeared to be about 4 ounces and although he asked for rare it was beyond well done. Nothing here is BBQ at all. Just smoked and very dry.
Maybe if they could change the dishes to reflect the name and the menu it would be OK. Personally I'm just not that in to having a smoked overcooked dinner. BBQ or grilled would be fine.
