Big Sky: "Beignets: Bad. Otherwise, good." San Luis Obispo Restaurant Tip by Redhairedfreak

San Luis Obispo Restaurants: 51 reviews and 53 photos

Maureen, I'm sorry, but I can't agree with you about the beignets at Big Sky. I ordered them once - never again. Dry, heavy, hard, and flavorless. I rarely waste food once served, but I left these on the plate. Beignets need to be moist and puffy.

That said, I've enjoyed just about everything else I've ever ordered here. I came in by accident the first time, because Tio Alberto's (next door, great stuff) was inexplicably closed on a Saturday afternoon. I lazily parked on the curb in front of Tio Alberto's - big mistake, $30 ticket. Those were the most expensive bad beignets ever. Use the parking lot across the street.

Price Comparison: about average
Directions: It's downtown, near where the farmer's market is held.
Price: US$11-20
