Food and Drink

After the Hike: Local Favorites

French Corner Cafe The almond croissant was ridiculous. Yum!
Chipotle Mexican Grill Great for getting super fat off burritos.
The Blue Orchid Pad Thai portions are moderate in size but sufficient.
California Pizza Kitchen Cheese pizza and half Italian chopped. Cold beer!
Panera Bread Turkey artichoke panini and a bowl of soup, delicious!
Armondos Margaritas WILL kill you, but it will be a fun way to go
Babe's BBQ If your legal drinking age go to the bar and mention Foursquare
Koffi Great outdoor seating area!
Yard House Try the Pear Cider! Skip the Ahi & do the spinach dip instead.
Blaze Pizza Imagine if you spent $15 on a meh frozen pizza from trader joes, then took it home and added some fresh toppings. That's pretty much what this was like.
Wilma & Frieda Awesome food. Had blackberry French toast is a signature item. Not your typical French toast. Not soaked bread with flavors. They make their own batter so bread like with fresh blackberry syrup.
Mimmo's Italian Restaurant & Bar Everything is fantastic. The veal, risotto, pasta, and service were great. Very good saltimbocca. We'll be back.
Real Italian Deli These guys do real Italian sandwiches! Fresh cut meats and cheese. Try on on a torpedo roll. There is a small area where you can eat outside.
Keedy's Fountain Grill Eggs breakfast special! Shakes are so think& yummy
Piero's Pizza Vino Hey, you really have to try the lasagna..
Casa Mendoza Enchiladas Mole were excellent as were the beef fajitas. Salsa is addictive and the Cadillac margarita were amazing.
Grill-A-Burger The Gobbler is the best turkey burger I have ever eaten! Add avocado and a little mustard, mayo, and ketchup and you've got yourself a treat!!
Sherman's Deli & Bakery Pastrami and Pasteries GALORE!
CJ's Stir It Up Really extensive vegan options! Tofu + lots of veggies and sauces.
