After the Hike: Local Favorites

El Grullense Drive Thru (San Jose) Crunchy chicken tacos are the bomb!!
Poor House Bistro Fried Oyster Po boy is legit!
91 S Autumn St, San Jose CA — (408) 292-5837
Henry's Hi-Life Visit this San Jose landmark for some baby back ribs. As seen on Travel Channel’s Man v. Food Nation.
Jake's of Willow Glen Wings are better than Wingstop. That's right, I said it.
1074 Lincoln Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 287-7960
Aqui Cal-Mex I don’t understand why this place was fully packed. It was one of the worst food I had in a long time. Margarita on the rocks wasn’t bad. I guess people go there for the drinks. Food is disgusting!
1145 Lincoln Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 995-0381
Back A Yard Caribbean American Grill Oxtail and jerk chicken combo is delicious. My girlfriend had the salmon and was absolutely beside herself at how amazing it was.
80 N Market St, San Jose CA — (408) 294-8626
Cafe Rosalena worst coffee drinks...bleh!
1077 The Alameda, San Jose CA — (408) 287-2400
Taiwan Restaurant Kung Pao chicken is great...
1306 Lincoln Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 289-8800
Social Policy Nice, chill staff. Has a nice modern feel that reminds me of other cafes (excluding Starbucks and Philz). Not crowded yet since it's a soft opening but worth checking out! Cappuchinos on point
Good Karma if you don't know anything about these food, just trust her! ;) delicious!
37 S 1st St, San Jose CA — (408) 294-2694
Ike's Love And Sandwiches Gluten free bread, most sandwiches can be made vegan, plenty of meat (if that's your thing), this sandwich place has options for everyone. And they are all delicious.
Ludwig's German Table Best German spot in SJ. Spaetzle is as authentic as it gets.
Souvlaki Greek Skewers The lamb souvlaki and the baklava are excellent. The falafel souvlaki is a good option for vegetarians.
577 W Alma Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 289-1452
Freshly Baked Eatery Cash only, only open lunch during the week. Sooo worth it.
152 N 3rd St, San Jose CA — (408) 298-9370
Dia De Pesca Si Food Best fish tacos ever!! Get the breaded HALIBUT taco: MUST!!
55 N Bascom Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 287-3722
Falafel's Drive-In Banana milkshake is made with real bananas. Yum!!
House of Bagels Hungover?... Hobags
Bill's Cafe Parking sucks. There's a residential street (McDandiel) around the corner with lots 'O parking though.
302 N Bascom Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 287-2455
Bill's Cafe Meat lover's omelette + mimosa goblet = the best.
2089 The Alameda, San Jose CA — (408) 244-9085
Ike’s Love & Sandwiches The sandwiches are amazing and the employees are super-friendly. Parking is a challenge, but worth it.
