“Good but getting too pricey”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

I've been going to the Firestone for over 10 years since my kids first attended Cal Poly. Nice place, good food, friendly staff but much to my disappointment, I've seen their prices steadily rise (and rise). The tri tip sandwich used to be around 8 bucks and now it's nearly 10. The pig sandwich was around 6 but now it's nearly 8. I realize everything is more expensive but this is getting pretty darn high.

“Tri-Tip is the Tip!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

My nephews were unanimous, you haven't had a good beef sandwich until you have a Tri-Tip. Gotta admit, it was very good! No wonder they call this their favorite.

“Great college town vibe, good food”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This was a large, very fun, high energy college hang out. The beer, burgers, salads, and hot dogs were all delicious. Don't order more than one fries or onion rings because they are huge. The college students were out in force on Memorial day weekend.

“Firestone Grill - San Luis Obiso”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Great food. Very long lines at night. If you want to beat the crowd come for an early dinner or lunch.

“Best Tri Tip Sandwich Available”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

Everyone who has rated this restaurant less than "5 Stars" must not be ordering the tri tip sandwich. I have been here 6-7 times in the last 5 years and I unfortunately can't speak to anything else on the menu because all I've ordered is the tri tip & fries, so sorry if this review is misleading.
