Corrales Mexican Food makes real good... Mexican food, haha. They also make awesome cheeseburgers and french fries.

What are, in your opinion, the best food joints in your area? It could be a family-run hot dog stand or a state-wide restaurant chain, anything.

Club 33...by far. Eating here will literally change your life. It has a 15 year waiting list and costs $40,000 a month for membership. I got in once with my godmother (her boss has a membership) and it was awe inspiring. It's on the Disneyland grounds, but is hidden...was once a private club for Walt and his sponsors.

But since I'll probably never get in again in my entire life...I'll have to say Tea Rush. This amazingly nice asian woman runs the place and makes the BOMBEST shrimp. Not to mention the amazing mocha frappe and amathyst tea.

Griolis, best real Italian style pizza in town and that i've ever had. There's also a really great sub chain called Firehouse Subs that make some awesome subs.

I LOVE sushi! Best sushi place around here is called Sumo. IT'S TEH BEST!!! no more than 3 dollars for 6 pieces of your favorite kind of sushi roll Very Happy
They also have the best lunch/dinner combos... Teryaki beef ribs, salmon.... mmmmmm

Woodranch is by far the best barbecue joint I've been to. It's pretty expensive but at dinner time they give 4 whole 1 foot long beef ribs instead of 2 tongue

@Durkee
There's an all you can eat sushi place somewhere in Ventura... it's closer Cool

Puffer fish? That is probably the one dish in the entire world I have yet to try (other than live octopus). The place must be pretty good to be allowed to serve it...if not prepared right it can kill ya.

I beg to differ! I'll bet you haven't tried casu marzu!



And are you really going to try live octopus? That can kill you too... The bastard will sucker onto your throat and choke you. You have to chew it for like 10 minutes. Whole. While it's still moving. Don't forget it's pretty big.

Havents had casu marzu specifically, but I have eaten grubs/maggots/etc. live.
Grubs I could handle, but the maggots just had too much of a gross factor. I had some problems after.

Heck ya live octopus! Most places require age 18+ so I'm just playing the waiting game Very Happy

My town has NOTHING but pizza joints. WE HAVE 5!!! Tony's, Pizza Place, O's, Nice and Easy (convenience store), and Grande's. Pizza Place is the best!

There was a BBQ place out near LA in some town called (no joke) Dr. Hogley Wogley's BBQ. Amazing stuff there, and they put the leftovers in a bag (literally, it's a clear garbage bag)! Recommend it, especially after shooting shotguns for 2 hours straight (shoulder...aches...horribly!).

Here's a rundown of the best places in my area:
Garduno's Mexican Cantina
Cazuela's Mexican Food
Rudy's Texas Barbecue
The Hot Dog stand in front of Home Depot on Coors by Cottonwood Mall
County Line Barbecue
Burger Boy in Tijeras
Longhorn Bar in San Antonio, NM (Voted Best Green Chile Cheeseburgers in the State)
Blake's Lotaburger (I would trade Mike for the recipe for their chili)
Richard's New Mexican Food
Venezia's Pizzeria
Chow's Asian Bistro (Not a buffet, woohoo!)
O'Hare's Pub & Grill
This one is kind of area-specific, but the item is only available in Texas
Dairy Queen Tacos!!! cheers Best tacos ever
