Top restaurant recommendations from locals

Sushi Restaurant
$$
“If you have never heard of Saburos and you love sushi, I would highly recommend making a trip here during your stay. They do have longer waits after they open so I would suggest checking on the wait time through Yelp and also getting on their wait-list before you head over there. Come hungry, but don't let your stomach fool you! The portion sizes are generously big, and most of the time everyone orders more than they can eat. But one thing to note is that they will only allow you to order once, so if you think you'll want to eat more sushi later that day then you do want to order more!”

Brewery
$$
“Try to time it out before 6pm to enjoy a great happy hour menu, and if you have kids, this is the place! They have a little corner of the restaurant stacked with toys to keep tots busy while adults enjoy the locally crafted brews. We love the happy hour kale salad and fish tacos. ”

Pizza Place
$$
“Who doesn't love pizza? Even when it's bad, it's kinda good. Well this pizza isn't bad by any stretch. It's a chain, but it's a local chain and they've held up as far as quality. Good selection of microbrews and cider. Definitely the best pizza place in the area. ”

Restaurant

Restaurant
$$
“I'll be honest, we don't eat here all that often. It's kind of spendy in my opinion, but the food really is quite good. When I'm craving Mexican food though I usually go a block down to San Felipe Taqueria. Drinks and atmosphere are way better here though. ”
