So, Black Stallion Bar & Grill isn’t brand new but it’s brand new to us. To be honest, I don’t know how long they’ve been open but it’s been a little while. Anyways, this spot is, believe it or not, in the Food4Less strip mall on the corner of Creston and Niblick here in Paso Robles (right around the corner from where we live) and it’s actually in the same unit as a place we used to frequent often.
The old place was called Papa Tommy’s but this new joint is called Black Stallion Bar & Grill. The vibe is casual, almost a combo of bar/ pub, sports bar, and pizza joint. I will say that the food doesn’t match the location. Not to dog strip malls but we’ve all been to some shady joints. We actually thought the food was really good. We had the appetizer of Brussels Sprouts and Bacon, the Black Stallion Burger (which was insanely flavorful), and Sammy got the Chicken tenders off the kid’s menu.
Bottom line, the food was great. To wash all that down I had a couple of beers and I will let you know they have a great craft beer selection and it’s always changing. I think that’s pretty cool. Annie had a couple glasses of local wine that she likes and Sammy had water we brought from home…I know, exciting.
The service was great as well. It wasn’t packed or anything so we’d have to test them out on a busy night to really see how it goes but the two guys that ended up taking care of us were super cool. I have no complaints. The food was good. The service was great. The vibe was relaxed. The prices didn’t offend us at all. To top it off it’s located two or three minutes from our house.
There you go, that’s it for me. If you go check them out let me know what you think. Cheers!
