Paso Robles dinner for family after day of travel

I've searched the board for Paso Robles recs and many sound delish but I thnk I'm looking for something more low key - mostly I'd like to avoid some chain we'd probably end up at. Mexican is always good but open to pretty much anything. It will be a thurs on the off chance that changes anything . Thanks for the help!

  1. There is a good family operated Mexican place called (I think) Los Robles Cafe. It is on east side of Spring St, but I don't remember the cross street.

    1420 Spring St, Paso Robles, CA 93446

        The auto address function added a street address to my post, which seems about right. The place has good green chile (and a great green chile omelet for breakfast) and a real al pastor spit some evenings.

    1. I haven't had a ton of luck with good Mexican in Paso. I would recommend Basil Thai or if you want Southwestern try Villa Creek.

      Both are casual. Basil Thai is the less expensive option.

      1144 Pine St., Paso Robles, CA 93446

        There is a great Mexican resstaurant in Paso called El Vino. Don't miss the guacamole prepared tableside! :)

      2. Don't forget the historic Paso Robles Inn - basics - scroll down their menu and see if this might work: Nothing wrong with burger and fries in a nice setting for a family dinner out. Steaks are pricey, but they have a lot more under $20.
