Central Coast Update Wanted -- Pismo/Arroyo Grande/Avila Beach et al

MRMoggie | Jul 18, 201104:00 PM     22

Many of the posts on the Pismo Beach area are older, and likely outdated.

Planning to be in Pismo for a few days and looking for decent Mexican food, hamburgers, or other sandwiches for lunch plus perhaps some Chinese for a takeout dinner. (Have largely given up on seafood, which all seems brought in from someplace else and/or frozen.) BBQ/oak grilled always a plus.

Happily willing to drive around to other neighboring towns such as AG, Grover City, etc. for lunch, and would like to have an update on the Rusty Pig -- did the old owners open a new spot and have the new owners made a mess of the original place?

Have had excellent meals at the Sycamore Inn in prior years, is it still terrific?

Also, any lunch recommendations for San Luis Obispo, prefer some good Mexican food, such as a taqueria, or a comfortable sandwich stop.

(We're already set for our steak expeditions to Nipomo and Casmalia.)

Hope to do some winery-related cruising through AG and Edna Valley to SLO, and another run south to the Los Olivos area, so any suggestions along those lines would be appreciated, including lunch or picnic stops. (I know about the 2,000 tasting rooms in Los Olivos, plus the co-op spot and tapas bar west of the fwy in Buellton.)

Thanks to all.
