Jocko's Steak House
Jocko's is a small restaurant in Nipomo, just off the 101 freeway (off Teft St). While the exterior may prompt you to keep going, the steaks are truly outsanding. Jocko's offers down to earth steaks, barbecue and the appropriate sides. You don't come here for A+ service, you don't come here for a quiet dinner for two, you come here to eat large amounts of meat, all grilled over an oak coal grill.
The wait can be a bit much, calling ahead for a reservation is a good call.
