Cool Hand Luke's - Santa Maria, CA

While driving home from a Memorial Service my Mom and I decided to pull off of Highway 101 and grab a bite at Cool Hand Luke's. I have been here many times before but have never blogged about my experience. So here I go...

What I find probably the best thing about Cool Hand Luke's is that they serve their warm bread with a crock of ranch beans. It sets them a part, makes them different. The beans were mostly used for soaking the bread - more like a dipping sauce.

My mom ordered the Cobb Salad. The meat was cooked to perfection and it really was a piece of art, very easy on the eyes. Don't you love how they fanned the avocado! Ha, I do!

I went for the Calamari Steak with Garlic Mashed. It was a large steak, too large - I ate half. What a waste. The mashed potatoes were fine, nothing to really write home about though. Everything was just fine.

Typical chain restaurant. Nothing terrible, yet nothing out of this world. Our server was pleasant and we actually got seated very quickly considering how many people that were waiting in the lobby. I have been to several Cool Hand Luke locations and this one seems to be doing very well! I am a huge Paul Newman fan, what a looker -So this restaurant will always have a special place in my heart.
