After the Ride: Local Favorites

Pine House Cafe & Tavern Menu changes weekly all I've had has been delicious do not miss the Brandon burgers, chili, soups, and specials like chicken or filet oh and the fries are tdf.
Major's Diner They have the best ICE. And shakes
Frosty burger Landmark! Last two phone booths in San Diego County.
Lake Cuyamaca Restaurant The view from the terrace to the lake is stunning. The food was great, well served.
15027 Highway 79, Julian CA — (760) 765-0700
The Buffet - Viejas Casino Let's just say I'd come every weekend for brunch if I could. Excellent buffet! Endless drinks while you dine. Just a reminder: The Bloody Mary's end at 2 pm. They also have an omelet station! Hoya!!
5000 Willows Rd, Alpine CA — (619) 445-5400
Rubio's Luke is great!
Adriano's Pizza Grotto Two people can eat cheap. We split the Super Torpedo and a small Antipasto salad. They were delicious. We couldn't finish the salad. We also bought two small drinks, all for under $20.
Salsa Mexican Food Best Mexican food I've ever had. Cali breakfast burrito with fries instead of potatoes. Delicious!
Donatos Best pizza in Alpine hands down!
2654 Alpine Blvd, Alpine CA — (619) 445-4006
Janet's Montana Cafe Huge portions. Breakfast is great, lunch is decent, and not a fan of their dinner
2506 Alpine Blvd, Alpine CA — (619) 659-3874
Tapatio's Mexican Grill & Seafood Wow!! Amazing food!! Salsa (all of them)is crazy awesome!!
2335 Alpine Blvd, Alpine CA — (619) 659-8605
Al Panchos My family goes here to eat all the time! And they serve nopales here! It's not on the menu but I asked for a side of them and they were soooo good! This is my family on my brother's birthday :-)

Franco's Flapjack House Delicious Waffles
MaƱanas Mexican Food California burrito FTW

Greek Village Grill Friendly, tasty food. Love that they use real butter.
Alpine Beer Company Pub While it lacks the charm of the old pub attached to the brewery, it's a well-deserved upgrade in space. Try a Du-Hop!
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.
Julian Cafe & Bakery Try the home fries and hot apple cider w whipped cream n caramel. Trust me.
2112 Main St., Julian CA — (760) 765-2712
Mom's Pies Go to Mom's Pies in autumn or winter and have a warm slice of apple crumb pie. Best way to enjoy the chilly seasons near San Diego!
