we visit this rustic restaurant with a decidedly western theme both for Lunch and dinner. The presentation is simple and the food is delicious, The burgers and sandwiches at lunch are delectable and the dinners, especially the baseball cut top sirloin is incredible. A decidedly honest establishment without any of the pretentious foofaraw in so prevalent today. Awesome food and... More

We have dined here a number of times in the past and have always enjoyed the experience. It has been several years since we last visited and we were pleased that nothing has changed significantly. We enjoy the relaxed atmosphere; service was excellent and attentive and many menu choices. We opted for the prime rib and were delighted we did... More

Friends and I were staying at a guesthouse on the east side of Paso and asked a winery for a recommendation for dinner. They sent us to to Loading Chute. We had seafood and prime rib which were all very good. We brought a bottle of wine from a local winery and the corkage fee was only $6. The bread... More

Creston is completely out of the way but you should definitely make the beautiful drive out there. It's totally worth it. The climatic is also great. Homemade bread and fresh veggies. Reservations should be made on weekends. We've been eating here for years and it's always consistently good.

The Loading Chute is a well rounded All American fare restaurant. Great steaks, seafood, chicken, ribs, burgers, etc. It is an excellent counter to the fu-fu restaurants you find in the main cities of SLO North County wine country. Great old west ambiance.

Dropped by for an early lunch. The split pea soup was great but only offered as a day special. Great service and ambiance. We come about once a month. They have a fine pizza oven in view.

I wanted steak last night so our friends took us to Loading Chute. From thr moment we were greeted at the front door to the completion of our dinner we were treated well, like family.

Come here for steaks folks...they do it right! Wife had a filet, I had the ribeye, added sauteed mushrooms and onions ($3 extra). Absolutely the best! Exactly the right seasonings, perfectly done, and LARGE portions. It's casual country out in Creston; no need to dress up! Added bonus? The wine corkage fee is $7. No where cheaper! We loved it...

Several people recommended this place, based on the steaks. Since I am not a meat lover, I was left with a baked potato (mushy and over-cooked) and a dinner salad (meh - just a standard mix from the grocery store). The meat eaters in our group of 6 highly recommended the rib-eye. One order of ribs was pronounced OK-to-good. Our... More
