Commonly known as “SLO,” San Luis Obispo’s town is a short drive from Morro Bay. Woodstock’s Pizza was voted the #1 Independent Pizzeria in the nation, and they live up to that title. Originally opening at a storefront in Oregon, the company’s second location opened in SLO in 1980. Now, the pizzeria has several areas around California but remains locally operated. What sets them apart from other pizzerias is that they use fresh ingredients and a fold-over crust with sauce baked inside.
Their menu includes customizable pizzas with sauce choices like their signature secret tomato sauce, pesto, creamy garlic, BBQ, and southern chipotle. There are also various signature options like the SLO Classic with mushrooms, olives, pepperoni, sausage, or the BBQ Bird, including BBQ sauce, chicken, onions, and bacon. Order online and have it picked up or delivered.

They also are known for their lunch specials that you can get daily until 3 pm. The specials come with soup, salad, white rice, and your entree choice with chicken or pork. They are close by so you can enjoy a nice walk or drive to pick up your meal.
Taco Temple started as a small takeout place in Cayucos in 1997. When lines began to wrap around the building, the owners moved to a larger location that could accommodate a full dining experience, opening in Morro Bay shortly after. They expanded to a second location in San Luis Obispo in 2018.
Taco Temple offers classic Mexican fare like the Temple Nachos, Chile Rellenos, enchiladas, and fajitas, along with other traditional dishes, including tostadas, burritos, and street tacos.
