After the Ride: Local Favorites

The Sawmill Run Restaurant The food was good. Prices are moderate. Give it a try.
Grain River Asian Bistro The Singapore Noodles are the best Chinese dish I have had since I left Shenyang, China. Lynn, the owner, is very sweet and customer service is fantastic.
San Carlos Grill Not impressed at all
Olive Garden Ugh, no one chooses to go to Olive Garden, you just end up here
In-N-Out Burger Run into everyone you went to high school with who you hate!
Baggin's Gourmet Sandwiches Good hot and cold sandwiches and friendly staff. The Sundown is like Thanksgiving on a sub roll: turkey, stuffing, cranberries.
Bubb's Grubb Burnt ends, delicious.
