Central Coast culinary adventures along Highway 101 and Highway 1
Toodie Jane, Polar Bear and I all seem to love exploring our beautiful central coast between Salinas and Santa Barbara and are slowly putting together an impressive list of road stops, road trips and destination restaurants.
It might be helpful for future Highway 101 and Highway 1 Central Coast travelers to find these spots all in one post so here goes the start of a thread that hopefully can be referenced by those who don't yet know this special part of still often untouched California.
I'll start with listing some of my favorites:
1. La Simpatia in Guadalupe for chile rellenos (Thanks to Toodie)
2. Mo's in Pismo Beach for ribs - Philthy Phil's my favorites
3. Chef Ricks in Orcutt - gotta have that Jack Daniel's pecan pie
4. Gopher Glen Apple Farm and others along See Canyon
5. Madonna Inn Copper Cafe, San Luis Obispo - for back to basics honest old time food
6. McLintocks in Pismo, sit at the bar for their Steak Pieces and Potato Skillet appetizers
7. Hotlix in Pismo for freshly made coffee-flavored salt water taffy

Right now, only those with editing powers can add something to the database. What I would suggest is that you include the particulars for the missing place (address, phone, cuisine, etc.) in your post, then use the "report" button and write some text to ask the moderators to create a new record.
Full of Life Flatbread in Los Alamos... not only for pizza but for wonderful salads and an exceptional wine list that is extremely fairly priced.
Panolivo, Paso Robles - Sunday brunch was excellent, with a mediterranean flair. Pastries looked pretty amazing too! Will definitely be back when in the area.
Don't forget about about these two!
Pismo Yogurt for great tasting frozen yogurt and fresh toppings.
Splash Cafe for the best Clam Chowder bowls south of SF.
