Cheesecake Factory

After that gustatory odyssey in Las Vegas, I had to have some light roughage to bring my system back into balance! Excellent Cobb Salad at Cheesecake Factory in Esco.

Panera Bread

I’ve recently heard people refer to Panera as “overpriced hospital food” and I’m starting to believe it! The last time I ordered their Green Goddess Cobb Salad they completely forgot the chicken. When I said something, they just brought out a side of chicken chunks in a paper cup LOL. Have not been back since.

Players Sports Bar

A rather unorthodox yet tasty Cobb salad at Players in Poway. I probably would not order this again here.

Claim Jumper

Outstanding Cobb Salad at CJ! Not quite as good as The Par Lounge, but all the traditional ingredients were well represented.

Board & Brew

A rather unorthodox but very tasty Cobb Salad at Board & Brew in Del Sur! I am missing that ripe avocado though! I’m sorry, but the cucumber isn’t fooling me LOL. đŸ˜‚

Ramona Family Naturals

RFN has an extraordinary selection of pre-made salads and sandwiches! This time I tried the delicious “Robb Jr Salad”. Their creative version of a traditional Cobb salad. Made with organic romaine lettuce, natural hard boiled eggs, maters, onion, natural smoked turkey breast, blue cheese and an excellent creamy vinaigrette. The only thing missing is bacon and avocado. Only $7.49, this outstanding salad ate like a meal! Perfect for grab & go or enjoy on their beautiful patio.

Rock & Brews

Such a stunning presentation on this delicious “Hotel California Cobb” at Rock & Brews in El Segundo, CA!

The Par Lounge

Cobb salad is back on the menu at The Par Lounge and it’s still the best one you can find in Ramona! I only wish they’d use normal balsamic vinegar and not the white stuff.


Outstanding Cobb salad that eats like a meal! I dearly adore the Cobb salad and finally tried D’Carlos Restaurant‘s interpretation. Made with chicken breast, salad greens, tomato, hard-boiled egg, blue cheese crumbles, avocado, bacon and your choice of dressing, $14.95.

Everything appeared and tasted fresh. It was super delicious, that I can tell you! My only recommendation to D’Carlos would be to chop or at least cut up the tomato. The huge slices were somewhat unwieldy and a cumbersome contrast to the rest of the ingredients. 

Kind of steep at almost 15 bucks, but this was definitely a big league salad. Service was top-shelf as always.

The Par Lounge

One of my favorite Cobb Salads in SoCal! So glad it is back on the menu at The Par Lounge in Ramona, CA.
