Mi Guadalajara

One of my new favorite restaurants in Escondido is Mi Guadalajara on W 2nd Ave! I had a tasty enchilada and tamale combination plate. Service and atmosphere was excellent. Lady Food Obs had this great looking carne asada plate. Obviously not mine considering there’s beans.

On the Border

Outstanding “Ranchiladas” at On the Border in Esco! A flavorful mesquite-grilled steak topped with ranchero sauce and melted jack cheese, plus two delicious cheese & onion enchiladas smothered in red chile sauce.

Way Point Saloon

Recently tried some new great appetizers at Way Point Saloon in Ramona, CA! Mac & cheese egg rolls made with their delicious bacon mac & cheese. It’s rolled up in an egg roll wrapper, then fried, etc. it was just excellent. Also tried their new spin on tater skins. Marinated steak and bacon crumbles fill these deep fried tater boats, then it’s topped with two different melty cheeses, green onions, etc. It was really tasty.


There’s not much I like about McDonald’s anymore, but a decent breakfast is not hard to find here. One of my favorites is the sausage biscuit with egg. Depending on your timing and location, you can actually get a good hot biscuit.

The Habit Burger Grill

Outstanding “Charburger” at The Habit! Some of the best fast food burgers in the industry. Right up there with Five Guys.

Cowboy Chicken

I just love a big salad that eats like a meal! Cowboy Chicken makes a prime example of that with their outstanding “Monterey Salad”. Chopped greens, rotisserie chicken, fresh avocado, mater and jack cheese tossed with toasted cheese crisp things and seasoned chicken cracklins. Served with a tasty chili lime dressing.

Pinto Thai

My favorite Thai dish with the perfect balance of sweet, sour and spicy is definitely Pad Thai! Pinto Thai in Ramona is consistently excellent with their version.

Mi Ranchito Taco Shop

Outstanding beef flautas at Mi Ranchito in Ramona! Definitely one of the best things to order on their menu.

Sombrero Mexican Food

Excellent “Healthy Chicken Bowl” at Sombrero! The perfect thing to order when you don’t want to be bogged down by a heavy, fatty tortilla. Tastes great, too.

Pei Wei Asian Diner

Outstanding fried rice with beautifully wok-seared flank steak! I love many dishes at Pei Wei but this one is definitely my favorite.
