After the Hike: Local Favorites

3 Margaritas Don't waste your money! Obviously nothing is made themselves. The taste is bland and just not worth it. Save your money and go to Toros just down the street next to Payless and the Dollar Tree.
Sushi AI Must have the unagi so good displayed beautifully!!
Albertacos Love the breakfast burritos!
Dragon King Chinese Restaurant The Combo Fried Rice is awesome. The hot and sour soup here is the best I've tasted anywhere. My wife and I go at least once a month and sometimes I just get a quart of hot and sour soup as takeout.
Jersey Mike's Subs Best subs / grinders around. As close to east cost as you can get
Noodles & Company You can place your orders online... pretty cool and nice
Thai Satay This place doesn't serve alcohol but it's BYOB! Epic win!
Sushi O Sushi Crouching tiger and SOS roll are amazing. Very impressed!
Culver's Pumpkin spice shake!!!!
Red Robin Gourmet Burgers Onion ring tower is the way to go
Amy's Donuts Omg donuts are amazing any toppings its worth the wait
Panda Express Dip the walnut shrimp into some spicy mustard!
Panera Bread There's a guy with a pony tail that makes the best sandwiches. If he's working, you're in good shape!
Edelweiss German Restaurant I am German and I know what good German food taste like, I went here the other day and enjoyed every single bite the food was fresh and the service was beyond great ,schwarzwalder kirsch was amazing
