McPhee’s Canteen and Quality Meats opens in Tin City

Tuesday, December 1st, 2020

–Over the course of the past 26 years, the McPhee family has provided the Central Coast with delicious meals at their downtown Templeton restaurant, McPhee’s Grill. Now, the family has opened the new McPhee’s Canteen and Quality Meats in Paso Robles, and is sure to satisfy customers with quality quick service meals.

McPhee’s Canteen and Quality Meats is open in the former location of the Tin Canteen in Tin City, and is doing pop up services on the weekend from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Customers can order tri-tip sandwiches, fried chicken sandwiches, or a Black Bean burger and enjoy their food on the patios. McPhee’s Canteen and Quality Meats is expected to open within the next two weeks for counter service and plans to include a meat shop so customers can purchase the high-quality meats, such as chicken and steak, used at both restaurants.

“I think the public appreciates quality, the consistency, and they know what they’re getting when they come here,” said Chef and Owner Ian McPhee, who became intrigued in opening McPhee’s Canteen and Quality Meats after a friend suggested the Tin City location as an addition to McPhee’s Grill.

The menu at McPhee’s Canteen and Quality Meats is sure to please the community. Just a sampling of dishes will include salads, burgers, wood-fired pizzas, fish and chips, and a wide beer and wine selection; in the future, large family-style dinners may be introduced. Max McPhee, son of owners Ian and June McPhee, will help carry on the family legacy as manager at the new location while Ian looks forward to opening McPhee’s Grill.
