Discover San Luis Obispo

San Luis Obispo's city council has maintained a ban on drive-throughs for any restaurant within city limits since 1982. This helps to make the restaurant scene one that prizes fresh ingredients, classic cooking styles, and a variety of cuisines. The vegetarian and vegan restaurants are among the most popular, making the most of the area's high value for fresh produce. Most of the rest of the restaurants, which feature farm-to-table ingredients, fresh seafood, and a host of international flavors, also offer several vegetarian options. Delis and Mediterranean restaurants also feature the freshness of San Luis Obispo in unique and delicious ways.
