After a good day exploring wine country throughout Paso Robles; this place is the perfect place to end the day. Delicious steaks OMG! I recommend the lamb chops (you will get a lot, so enjoy). The ribs are tasty (And there was a lot YUM!). Everything on the menu is ... just say "YUM" The atmosphere is so lively you... More

What a wonderful, family atmosphere. Drove up to it and the local fire department was driving in waving at us as they came to enjoy dinner. The staff were totally friendly and very accommodating to our needs. Our waitress, believe her name was Sammy, was so wonderful we wanted to hug her goodbye. As the locals were leaving they were...

We had a large group (50+/-) of people that was set at another restaurant, which cancelled the night before. Loading Chute set us up with very short notice and served a great lunch. Service and food was great. We will all be coming back!

We were recommended to go here by Steve Cass of Cass Winery, who said "If you see people there who look like cowboys they probably are cowboys". So a real back country eatery, with simple country food and few pretensions. All the other customers seemed to be locals, but we were given a good welcome and plenty of help with... More

Exceptional streak! I had the NY Steak with blue cheese butter. Great food and wine list. Would highly recommend the short beautiful drive out to Creston for this hidden gem. Alo be sure to orders the mud pie for dessert.

Creston,CA produces great wine, olives and beef. The Loading Chute is a favorite among local farmers, wine makers and the occasional tourist. The steaks and Tri Tip are always good and they have a varied menu with something tasty for everyone ( even non carnovores). It's worth the drive from anywhere in the Paso Robles area. Your nose will let... More

In the hills about 20 minutes southeast of Paso Robles, is the tiny town of Creston. This is where you will find some of the finer food ever. It's where all the local winery, vineyard and olive grove owners eat-elbow to elbow with the old-time ranchers. It has a great western atmosphere, very casual with some of the best steaks... More

Attended a wedding here last month, it was a great spot for a small wedding. Nice trees, grassy area, covered barn area with heaters and an outside patio. The food was really good! The Tri Tip was so delicious! The wine at the wedding was not very good, so I went to the bar and bought a better bottle which... More
