This is a real traditional Irish/Scottish style pub with great pub grub and selection of brews you might find in Dublin's Temple Bar district. If you even want just near-beer they have the best, which is Kaliber, made by Guinness (a bit malty but a great taste). They have "Newkie Broon" (Newcastle Brown Ale) and "Smith-icks" (Smithwicks Irish Ale) and other tasty concoctions. A lively place with a big back fenced-in and heated patio as well as a railed-in sidewalk dining/drinking area. One co-owner, I'm told, is Irish/Mexican and the other Scottish/Mexican, so you have the best of both (or all three) worlds. The place explodes on St. Paddy's Day. I saw Ron Jeremy standing in line to get in during the Mid-State Fair. A brilliant pub that always draws in visiting Brits too.

I've always liked this place, even from when they were formally known as the Crooked Kilt. Their prices aren't bad. Not too much seating in the bar when it gets crowded but there are additional tables in the main restaurant.

We were visiting Paso Robles on a wine tasting group and someone recommended Pappy MacGregors. It was fantastic! Burgers are great, and pretty creative. We had a large party and everyone loved their food!

We went to this restaurant to watch a baseball game, and it had been recommended by someone in the area. It's a great little pub feel. Our server was Heidi, who was really great. We ordered the mac and cheese, which was absolutely delicious, and I'd LOVE to order it again (and maybe try the lobster mac and cheese). My hubby ordered chicken wings (one of his staples at a pub or sports bar), and was not too impressed. They had a batter on them, which he is not a fan of when it comes to chicken wings. I would go back.....for more mac and cheese!
