You can throw in outlining areas if you want, Santa Barbara, OC whatever. All food types are a go – cost does not matter.

Mine are:

Café Med @ sunset plaza – mushroom dusted chicken, rigatoni bolognaise, good salads – decent wines.

Rocks for drinks down the street – good view of the strip.

Orso need Cedars (old Joe Allen site) – nicely prepared food for the money – inexpensive wines and a killer patio.

James' Beach and Chez Mimi – almost outside places.

Personal favorite:

Buona Tavola
1037 Monterey St., San Luis Obispo
943 Spring St., Paso Robles
