Hoover's Beef Palace - Templeton, CA

brattenheimer | Jan 26, 200706:23 PM     6

Where else would you expect to get fresh, "ambient" wafts of a stable outside and amazing meats inside? Why, Hoover's Beef Palace, of course.

Located just minutes outside of Paso Robles, CA (one of the Central Coast's great wine territories), you can get the FRESHEST cuts of meats w/ your breakfast here. A winemaker that my friends and I met with one overcast November afternoon recommended that we go here for the best breakfast ever. Boy, was he right.

They have their own slaughter house in the back (sounds odd, but oh well), and it really is a local's hole-in-the-wall...AMAZING FOOD.

My husband ordered the homemade sausage breakfast patty w/ eggs - heavenly. Most flavorful, fresh, juicy thing you've ever tasted. And, huge!

I had homemade corned beef hash - To-Die-For. I didn't know that hash could be that flavorful and not greasy at the same time.

We also ordered biscuits and gravy to share with our table of friends, also tasty (though Ellen's Danish Pancake House in Buellton is still #1 in my book). I highly recommend going here before or after a long day's worth of wine tasting through the Templeton Gap.

Part of a review from winecountry.com:
"Hoover’s sits on a lot as incongruous as its name. Trailers hauling cattle roll around the back, and I was afraid to ask – but assumed – that was where my breakfast fare came from. The restaurant opens early enough and goes through lunch, around 2:00 p.m. I think. But, I believe they leave that an option and warn people that they could close earlier, if they feel like it."
