The Great Flavors Rating System

The Flavor Team travels up and down the Central Coast on the lookout for the best of the best… great food, great wine, great restaurants, great things to do, and great businesses in the Arroyo Grande, Grover/Pismo/Shell Beach, and San Luis Obispo areas and beyond.

We get out often to try new places and revisit old standbys to be sure they’re still tasty. If we share something with you in our Great Flavors community, it’s because we believe it warrants inclusion and meets our philosophy of filling life with great flavor.

And some things are so darn flavorful that they garner additional flavorite points.

This extra rating is based on the highly scientific thumbs-up scale from the Flavor Team’s gluten-free and not-gluten-free perspectives, as well our opinions as two different people with different likes and tastes. If we share one – and sometimes two — thumbs up, that means extra points on the flavorite scale.

Two viewpoints, one mission: to share our honest opinions of the best places to engage with the full-flavored life here where land meets the sea.
