My husband ordered the beef fajitas with shrimp and I ordered the chicken burrito. We also tried all salsas. The mild one was great for me, the others pretty spicy . Their spiciest is super hot. Only a drop and you’re done. Food was great! Chips were tasty. Very pleased with our meal.

In-N-Out Burger

At In-N-Out Burger, quality is everything. Stop by to enjoy our menu of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, french fries and shakes. In-N-Out makes fast food the old fashioned way.

My daughter begged me to go here, and although the food was alright, not as great as we thought it would be. Obviously very popular in this area as they were swamped with business, and got to give them credit for the good service considering how busy they were.

BackDoor Bistro and Wine Bar

Reviewed By vacation0410 - United States

We had reservations for dinner and were seated right away. We were given our menus and proceeded to wait quite a while. My husband had to flag down a server to take our order. She was very apologetic. I found the food to be mediocre at best. I ordered the pork chop and it was dry and overdone. My kids ordered the beef stroganoff which was ok and my husband had the halibut bouillibaise which was probably the best dish at the table. With the slow service and just ok food, I was pretty disappointed since there were so many rave reviews on Trip Advisor. Would definitely not go back.

Black Oak Restaurant

Reviewed By luzsbrain - Fairfield, California

We had friends rave about this place so we went and were seated quickly we didn’t get to see the specials on the board. The breakfast menu was pretty standard. Got steak and eggs, medium and scrambled with country potatoes. Partner got Denver omelette. Eggs were ok, steak was char boiled and every piece I ate tasted burnt. They offered to take it back but I didn’t since it would probably be cooked the same way. They put raw onion and pepper on top of the potatoes which killed the meal for me as I don’t like those raw. It didn’t impress me probably won’t go back.

Buckhorn Bbq

Reviewed By RocketFloyd - Floyd, Virginia

Stopped for lunch in Vacaville, and started driving by places to eat. I observed a number of people entering this restaurant and went it. Smelled good right away. Order first, then sit down. Was only slightly hungry, so inquired of cashier that I wanted some BBQ chicken and sweet potato fries, and a drink. He was helpful to point out the best choice on the menu. The food was delivered to the table, and it was excellent, both the chicken which was moist and the fries which were slightly crispy, not soft like other places.

Fuso

Reviewed By Stan N - Davis, California

I had great expectations after reading the reviews but I was very disappointed. I was there for a business meeting. First, there was not enough wait staff to timely deliver the drinks nor refill them. The salad was average but my linguine with seafood had a good amount of clams and fish but had only 1 mussel and a few shrimp. The linguine was a little past al dente and the sauce needed more seasoning. The cheesecake was good.

Merchant & Main Grill & Bar

Reviewed By Laura K - Vacaville, California

Went here with friends to hang out. They picked the restaurant. We have had mixed experiences here with the food over the last 12 years. So we wouldn’t normally choose to go. The service is usually pretty good although don’t expect a fine dining experience. The food was better than expected. We ordered the crab cake appetizer and it was way better than we expected. I had salmon, and it was not over cooked. Hubby had the prime rib and he was satisfied. They do a nice Caesar salad here according to my friend. The atmosphere is nice and the booths in the main dining area are very private and comfy. So this is a place I won’t avoid anymore. This is a Vacaville classic so I am happy they are doing well.

Tahoe Joe's

Reviewed By dickanddoug - seattle

Party of four that I hosted. We all ordered Joe's Steak, medium. Three of the plates had a nice thick piece of meat, big pink section in the middle, perfect. Mine was longer, thinner, tough, not at all juicy and well done or worse. I should have sent it back, but our time was short and I didn't want to raise a problem in front of my guests. Totally unsatisfactory steak. The spring green salads were lovely, my Caesar Salad was barely dressed, tasted like plain romaine with cheese on top. Green bean side dish excellent all around.
Service was responsive, excellent. Decor fun and pleasing.

Vacaville Black Bear Diner

You know the best thing about the Black Bear Diner in Vacaville? We don’t, either — because everything about it is so great! Maybe it’s the tasty food. Perhaps it’s the friendly employees. Most likely, it’s a combination of both… and that’s exactly what brings our customers back for more. We hope you’ll come down for your next breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Fantastic food! Claudia was a fabulous server. Friendly, thoughtful and extremely efficient. She made great recommendations and we were not disappointed.

We had the Grizz split between our three children, which was more than enough. I had the SCRAMbowl which was waaaaaay too much food. It was amazing! My wife had the Southern Scramble which she truly enjoyed.

We will definitely return again and again.

Olive Garden

Reviewed By ChefJohnS - Boise, Idaho

We had a very nice dinner at the Olive Garden in Vacaville.

The service was excellent, and the food was also very good.
Appetizer was the Parmesan Bites(outstanding!!), and entrees were angel hair pasta with pesto for me and spaghetti with marinara for my wife. Mine was great, but even though my wife ordered hers spicy, it came out bland(it always does).
Still, we keep giving it a shot, hoping one day OG will come up with a tasty tomato sauce. Their service and other products have improved dramatically over the past couple of years, so I hold out some hope.
