About Our Chef
GREAT FOOD NO BULL
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 2 Rib Line restaurants: one in San Luis Obispo and one in Grover Beach. The family also own the nature experience and culinary delight, Sunsets at Pismo, as well as The Switch in San Luis Obispo that offers delicious food, excellent wine and engaging events. They love spending time with their 3 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 Rib Line’s reputation for great food is only getting stronger. In the catering sector, Brian can bring his award-winning cooking to you for your next event!
"I love having restaurants on the Central Coast because I love where we live! In SLO we have our regulars that come in and share stories with us and in Grover Beach we get a lot of the tourists that visit us every time they visit Pismo or the Oceano Dunes." - Chef Brian Appiano
