  • We stopped here so we could try the legendary garlic ice cream (not a fan btw, but fun to say we did it). Not sure what I expected, but maybe more things from local farms? When I asked the guy if they...  read more »
  • Neat store. Could spend groups of money on Garlic stuff. Wanted to pick up some Garlic Ice Cream, but it would not survive a two day drive home. Lots of unique and interesting stuff. 
  • What a FUN place if you love garlic, spice and hot as well. Very eclectic market full of fresh produce AS WELL AS a myriad of other gourmet items garlic based, pickled, jams and jellies, nuts, just a ...  read more »
  • Garlic World seems to me to be half local stop and half tourist trap. It sits right along the highway, so the location is convenient. They have quite the array of, you guessed it, garlic. By that, I mean pickled many flavors. They also sell general produce there and a whole bunch of hot sauce. However, if you're in the market for a local hot sauce, I suggest picking up a few bottles of Pepper Plant. They have it there in small bottles as well as half gallon jugs.
  • My wife is a garlic freak and she absolutely loved this place. They have everything garlic one can think of including ice cream. Plenty of parking and a lot of local grown choices. Convinced us to come back and see the festival.
  • Have stopped here twice now on the way home from Monterey and enjoyed it both times. The service has always been friendly and the BBQ is tasty. Tried their signature tri-tip sandwich the first time and their pulled pork sandwich and ribs the last time. Each item is about $8 - $12 and one is enough unless you are feeling particularly hungry and you have a large appetite. The specialty store selling different hot sauces and garlic paraphernalia is also worth walking around. Their signature pepper sauce and garlic hot sauce are great and I ended up purchasing a bottle of each.
  • Came in for the fresh fruit. Garlic did steal the show at the next meal
  • Online ordering stinks. Rotten rope of 10 cloves with mold and rotten spots on an obviously old stock NOT FRESH. Big price for the same crap I could have gotten 6 for a dollar at the Supermarket down the street with better quality. Shipping to S. Cal was high as well. Customer service does not keep the hours claimed and stated in their phone message and when I called back the second day at an earlier time received a rude, callous, lackadaisical attitude ridden representative lacking any knowledgeable and contradicting the information written and displayed on their own website. Avoid this online ordering like the plague. They might get 5 stars on the people visiting their restaurant but their business policy and ethics stinks online!! It's your money. Don't waste it.
