Rubio's They play bad a** music
Smashburger If you're a vegetarian, their black bean burger is the best I've tasted from a chain restaurant.
Chipotle Mexican Grill Always order your food online if u can. you can pay in store, but it'll save u from standing in line

Los Dos Molinos Best Mexican Food in town! Love this place!
