The second night we had decided on another venue to eat dinner, however they had a charity function so the place was not open. We went into Buffalo and decided to eat in there, glad... More

We stopped by here for a late lunch. I had the Guiness burger which supposedly has a Guinness reduction sauce, but I couldn't really taste it. Overall, though it was a pretty good burger. I also had a side of onion rings which were pretty good as well. Unfortunately I didn't have one of the many beers that they serve... More

Waited 45 minutes for standard pub faire right at lunch time. In at 11:45. Served at 12:35. Waitress was friendly enough. Food was alright. I had pastrami, wife had mac n cheese. Not good enough to go back.

If you want to catch the game, have a good beer, German-themed lunch, this is your place. Good lunch menu with indoor/outdoor seating in downtown San Luis Obispo

I went to buffalo on Saturday for a drink and some food. I was surprised to find that a new menu was created to narrow Down the choices. I have been here a couple of times and thought the food was average. I took a chance and ordered calamari to start. A very light batter and not over cooked. The... More

We stopped in to grab a burger, but we found that the barkeeper was warm and friendly. This was a pleasant surprise. The food was excellent, and they had a good variety on the menu for a small pub/restaurant. Would definitely stop in again when we are back in SLO.

Thank leo d
