We decided to “adventure” to a couple of new places recently. When I say new I mean they’re new to us…both places have been open for a while but even we get stuck going to our standard favorites. Yeah, it’s an adventure even when you’re in your own neighborhood! After all, adventure means doing something different, something out of the ordinary, so here goes!
Red Brick Pizza Serves Up Great Customer Service
One of the places we stopped in was Red Brick Pizza in Paso Robles; we’ve driven by it hundreds of times but finally stopped in on a recent Saturday to grab some food to take to Edward Sellers Winery. I, for one was blown away, from the minute you walk in it’s wide open and bright. Each booth has a television at it with its own remote, the menu is pretty damn good, and the staff was beyond courteous. As we have talked about a lot in the past, when we find courteous staff that knows customer service we like to highlight it because most places (yes, I said most) don’t have a clue what customer service is. These folks did!
As you’ll see in the slideshow, I was not only happy with the presentation of the wine and beer selection but I was also quite content with the selection itself. It appears someone was paying attention to details. Annie ordered a couple of sandwiches, which didn’t take that long for them to make at all, and we headed over to the winery to eat…and yes, the food was consistent with everything else at Red Brick; it was solid! Great experience overall and it makes me giddy like a school girl (weird?) to see that quality customer service still exists!!
Joe’s Place is THE Place to Adventure!
The other spot we went to recently was Joe’s Place in Paso Robles which (for you locals) is located in the building that used to house Lolo’s Mexican Restaurant on South Spring Street. On this adventure, we decided to walk from our house over to Joe’s to give it a shot for breakfast. They did a fantastic job remodeling the interior from when it was Lolo’s, not that it was horrible before but it was definitely outdated. The breakfast we each ordered was awesome, how could I possible go wrong with a breakfast burrito the size of my forearm? You’re right, I couldn’t go wrong!
We’ll definitely be back to Joe’s as well…but we’ve also heard there is a Joe’s in Templeton which we need to try. Some people, who shall remain nameless (right Mitch?), say the Templeton spot is better. Not sure how that’s possible if it’s the same people but we will have to investigate for ourselves and let you know. After overeating we decided to walk down to the train station and over into the downtown park area…needed to walk off all that food intake.
So cheers to Red Brick Pizza and Joe’s Place for a job well done. Don’t rest on your laurels, keep pushing the quality food and superb customer service…you never know who may stop in to write about you next! Now, go make your own adventures! Cheers!
