This restaurant is the best Mexican restaurant in Paso Robles. It is a bit small but the food is extremely authentic and definitely reminds me of my trips south of the border. The seafood on the menu is a nice touch, reminiscent of the restaurants in Ensenada.
I have always had great luck with the staff and owners and they greet me when they see me and my family come in to eat.
Over the years the prices have gone up but the food remains top-notch. It does not have hard liquor available, however their are plenty of different beers to choose from.
We have even had one of our daughter's birthday parties there.
I suppose I am a particularly practical person when it comes to shopping. As such I appreciate JCPenney's to no end because it is just that, a practical department store.
Every time I have gone into purchase something from Pennies I find it immediately, I check out quickly, and the price is very inexpensive. The staff is always helpful and I've even have had them order items for me from the catalog, and it arrives at my office - when it's not available in the store. I don't get that kind of service elsewhere. Granted it is somewhat limited in its scope of goods, however on the central coast practically everyone has a very limited scope of their goods. Compare the Old Navy store in San Luis Obispo to the Old Navy store in San Francisco and you get what I am talking about.
To all the adult males that must wear a dress shirt to work, I highly highly highly recommend the Stafford super shirt. You can commonly purchase one on sale for approximately $20 a shirt, and they hold up well through several years of wash and wear. Washed and dried properly you need never iron them. I have paid more that three times the aforementioned price for a crappier shirt.
I have been going to Villa Creek infrequently (there are a lot of other nice places to eat in town) since it opened which was probably a decade ago. The restaurant menu and service keep getting better and better, and it would be an easy recommendation for me to make to anyone asking for a fine dining experience.
In addition to dining, Villa Creek has one of the few bars and town that doesn't operate as they pick up spot, and the drinks are nice and stiff.
I heartily recommend this establishment.
This place is an excellent coffeehouse. And reading the other reviews none of them are off the mark, as such the place is always busy. It's very friendly with a mother-daughter team being the principles and either other family or hand-picked employees rounding out the staff.
The atmosphere is fine and the staff is very friendly. I would recommend them to anyone who asks.
Many of us locals were very upset to see Alloros(sic) close down and the Chef move to greener pastures.Il Cortile fills that void nicely. We went to eat dinner with a party of six, and all six of the meals we received, and the appetizers were splendid. The wine list was also reasonable and contained fine choices. We went to the restaurant shortly after it opened, when many restaurants are commonly having "teething" problems. No such problems were evident and the whole place was run in a highly professional fashion. I have recommended the restaurant to at least a half dozen people or more and would recommend it to anybody who asked. It is a fine addition to our town and I wish them all the luck.
I suppose that some effete types may not appreciate Lauren (the owner) & Bill (the employee), however I do. Lauren is a "go to" business woman who bends over backwards for her customers. She made my daughter's birthday cake for her 16th birthday party. That was the best cake I've seen since my wedding cake, and the price was also very reasonable, Lauren even completed the cake ahead of schedule. Lauren has always been polite to everyone in our family - but I suppose we too are polite.
