Buffalo Bill's The wrap around porch is a quiet spot. Lean buffalo burger was great!
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.

The Red Ocotillo The fish tacos were good, even though I am no expert I loved them.
Jilbertos Monster burritos are good, cash only.
Phil's BBQ I'm not with anyone - just sitting in my car, debating ordering a sandwich to share with my dog
