Old San Luis BBQ Happy Hour

Old San Luis BBQ is seriously the BEST! Definitely my favorite BBQ in SLO! Their sliders on sourdough bread are to die for! And their milkshakes are super yummy! The staff is always friendly and helpful. It is pretty hidden, but I definitely recommend looking for it! Their food is the best!

Delicious!! I really enjoy the cowboy pie (corn pie) and the tri-tip sandwich - the meat is well done and well seasoned (although I could stand a little more...). The strawberry lemonade is also quite good. Definitely a solid bbq place by this Texan's standards.
