After the Ride: Local Favorites

Auburn Black Bear Diner Quality food. Burgers are awesome with onion rings
13365 Lincoln Way, Auburn CA — (530) 888-8432
Awful Annie's Eggs Benedict is excellent
13460 Lincoln Way, Auburn CA — (530) 888-9857
Joe Caribé Absolutely love the curry veggies with quinoa and incredible chocolate dessert special with Oreo crust.
Ikeda's California Country Market The bathrooms are NOT heated. Forewarned is forearmed. This place is worth it anyway. <smile>
13500 Lincoln Way, Auburn CA — (530) 885-4243
Sweetpea's Great little stop! Bread is made fresh, portions were solid, cinnamon buns were delicious, chorizo omelet hit the spot!
Dingus McGees There is a semi-private room upstairs which seats about 24 people.
14500 Musso Rd, Auburn CA — (530) 878-1000
Twin Dragon I've eaten at a lot of Chinese restaurants around the world and Twin Dragon is still one of the tops in my mind. Mu Shu pork is excellent...probably my favorite Chinese dish anywhere.
The Little Belgium Deli & Beer Bar Simon is a great bartender. Serves an awesome attitude and some great brew. :)
640 Lincoln Way, Auburn CA — (530) 820-3056
Auburn Thai Garden Restaurant Everything. This place deserves your attention.
175 Palm Ave, Auburn CA — (530) 887-8696
Monkey Cat If I'm ever in the area I make it a point to stop in for some darn tasty dishes. The salmon is amazing! It's grilled and finished with a sun dried apricot cream sauce that is so good you want more.
Katrina's Cafe This is the BEST place to go get some breakfast in Auburn. Dishes are always fresh and potatoes are NOT greasy like other places I've been to. Just make sure to go early and carry cash!
The Daily Egg Huge portions. Carnitas and tomatillo salsa in the green bfast burrito were spot on. Bloodies and bottomless mimosas!
Fosters Freeze I order my shakes extra thin: otherwise these unbelievably dee-lish old-school milkshakes won't fit thru the straw.
Hanami Sushi Best sushi is golden gate. Firefighter, rocknroll, & ninja are good too (spicy). For 8 rolls and 15% tip everything came out to be $115. Not too bad considering the quality. Funny & friendly staff
944 Lincoln Way, Auburn CA — (530) 889-8006
Sums Mongolian Bar-B-Que Great Mongolian BBQ...Pick your own meat, veges,and sauce, then watch them cook it up for you. Then when your stuffed go get yourself some GREAT Soft Serve. Delicious!!!
958 Lincoln Way, Auburn CA — (530) 889-8948
In-N-Out Burger The last In-N-Out on your way up 80 to Tahoe. My order is cheeseburger XXX (extra lettuce, onions, tomatoes), extra crispy animal style fries and a diet coke :)
Local Heroes Milkshakes are awesome
Taco Tree Get your super nacho samp style
Old Town Pizza Best Pizza in Auburn
