Paso Robles grows up to fine dining Prime Rib, cheese and Vietnamese

It had been a long time since I was in downtown Paso Robles. I used to drive through on my way to pick up my daughter at a friend’s house. I used to think that Paso Robles was a town to drive through. I admit, I was a South County snob – but I have been forced to eat my words.

For my money, Paso Robles is the best place to eat in San Luis Obispo County. It’s the ONLY place that comes close to fine dining. Just walk around the Square – or rather – eat around the Square. One tantalizing place after another…

If you’re in the mood for Prime Rib, try the Paso Robles Inn Steakhouse on Wednesdays for a bargain $19! Salad, potatoes and prime beef. Can’t beat it. The Vietnamese Restaurant on the Square serves the best Vietnamese food we’ve had since France or French West Africa. Vivant (Cheese and Wine) has a sweet tasting for $10 that gives you four cheeses paired with four wine varietals.

Paso Robles Inn Steakhouse for good meat. Try the Prime Rib Special on Wednesdays - $19!
