After the Ride: Local Favorites

Dudley's Bakery Great for breads, particularly the jalapeno cheese, german black, and potato bread. And you have to try the fruit bars!
In-N-Out Burger Animal style well done fries are the best!
Phil's BBQ I'm not with anyone - just sitting in my car, debating ordering a sandwich to share with my dog
Mom's Pie House Great place for dessert. The apple pie is good but get it with the cinnamon ice cream, the ice cream was excellent. They also sell eggs and fudge.
4510 Highway 78, Julian CA — (760) 765-2264
Wynola Pizza Say hi to the gray haired cashier! He's my dad
4355 Hwy 78, Julian CA — (760) 765-1004
Miner's Diner Get the cherry coke. It sure is the bees knees! Wowza!
2134 Main Street, Julian CA — (760) 765-3753
Candied Apple Pastry Company An unrated gem of San Diego area. This place alone is worth the drive

2112 Main St., Julian CA — (760) 765-2712
Troy's Greek Restaurant Lunch specials are good. Inexpensive and nice sized portions. The half turkey sandwich is like a full sized sandwich at most other places.
10450 Friars Rd, San Diego CA — (619) 281-7741
Romano's Restaurant I had the eggplant parmesan. Humongous portion n was delicious. My children enjoyed theirs as well. Server was awesome. I visit Romanos each time I'm in the area.
Buffalo Bill's The wrap around porch is a quiet spot. Lean buffalo burger was great!
Lake Cuyamaca Restaurant The view from the terrace to the lake is stunning. The food was great, well served.
