Chef Brian Appiano was born and raised in the Bay Area, but never left the Central Coast after graduating from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. He started his creative cooking while feeding the brothers of Phi Kappa Psi while in college and used those skills to capture the love of his life, Krystal. His passion is creating things from scratch, and using his own unique recipes to make every dining experience memorable for every customer. Brian has made a name for himself as a chef on the Central Coast and the couple now owns four restaurants. They love spending time with their three children all over our beautiful Central Coast. Winning several local food competitions, being featured on Man vs. Food Nation, and placing 1st in the World Food Championship in Las Vegas, the Appiano family’s reputation for great food is only getting stronger.
SAY ABOUT US
The best meal we had during our week long trip in the area! I have never had a better mac & cheese ball, the grilled baja fish tacos were magnificent, and they some how elevated a simple hot dog! The lemonade was also fantastic! And to top it all off the views and atmosphere were incredibly relaxing. We will definitely return in the future.
Oh my gosh, this little place is so cute. the friendliest service and so personable. The young guy who worked the front was such a delight to talk to. My kiddos loved the giant hotdogs and French fries. The clam chowder was also phenomenal. presentation was also top notch. WHO KNEW??? This establishment has been in our our backyard for over a year and this was our first experience. I’m feeling like we have been missing out!
We tried the Sunset Fries (with pulled pork), the eloté, shrimp taco, fish taco, and kid’s Mac and cheese – let me tell you – EVERYTHING was sooooooo delicious! The meat and seafood were SO incredibly fresh and flavorful!! Literally every bite was heavenly – I could eat here literally every day
If you are looking for an ocean view, great people and the best sandwich ever, then Sunsets at Pismo is the place for you. The Filet Mignon sandwich was over the top delicious! Tender, juicy and tasty. It is now a food destination place for me & I hope you will enjoy it too.
