Los Jilberto's

Some of the best authentic street cart style mexican food in Riverside. Try the California Burrito. One of the best (and probably worst for you) burritos you will ever have. The Nak burrito is also excellent It has a little bit of everything. Make sure to try their homemade salsa. It will keep you coming back for more. Their guacamole is hit and miss though. Cheap food, large portions, and quick service make it a winning combination.

For the best fresh chinese food, look to this unfortunately hard to get to restaurant. Try the chicken chow mien. It is the best I have ever had (still a little greasy for my taste, but still the best).


Pink's Hotdogs

When driving buy Pink's Hotdogs in Hollywood, the only thing that would give you a clue as to the popularity of the place, is the line that is constantly present out front. Don't be surprised to find a famous face in the crowd. Pink's was present in Hollywood, before it was even known as Hollywood. The menu offers everything you can think of to put on a hotdog. Don't expect to be able to eat the hotdog lady-like because they overfill it with the toppings of your choice.  Even the fries and onion rings are recommended. It will make you think twice about hotdogs.


Sammy's Chicken and Rib's (Out of Business)

A Strange name for a Middle Eastern restaurant, but inside you will find the best fast food middle eastern restaurant in Riverside. Their falafel pita is excellent and their hot wings are surprisingly good as well. This is a little unassuming restaurant that you shouldn't pass up for a good quick lunch.

This is a great little cafe near UCR in Riverside with delivery and catering available. Their focus is mainly on lunch, but a couple of breakfast items are available. This restaurant has some of the best hot sandwiches in Riverside, and fantastic soups. Daily specials are always new, fresh, and excellent. The cafe is small, but has a very comfortable cozy atmosphere. The staff could not be more courteous, or knowledgeable, try whatever they recommend.

Cafe 225

225 West Main Street Visalia, CA 93292 (559) 733-2967

An excellent cafe where the food is fresh and the menu is wonderfully varied with Mediterranean and California cuisine. A very cozy stop off on the way to the Giant Sequoias or just a trip to the agricultural heart of California. I love the pizza here, but their whole menu is wonderful. Definitely worth a detour if you are in the area

This is the perfect example of adventurous dining. If we didn't try new places we never would have found this gem. If you are anywhere near Glen Ellen, CA you have to stop and eat at this cafe. Go for breakfast! Truly the best breakfast we have ever seen at a restaurant. Check out their website for a menu. Try the oven custard pancake!
