Julienne

This cafe and gourmet shop is like something straight out of France. Absolutely beautiful inside, with unique gift items, pates, pastries, chocolates, cheeses and other delicacies. The cafe looks like a room in a French chateau. Unfortunately we arrived less than an hour before closing, so the cafe part was already closed. The two gentlemen at the counter were incredibly kind, encouraging us to sit at the outside tables and providing us with everything needed to enjoy pate, crackers and dessert. They even opened the pate for us and provided extra wrapping so we could take the leftover home. They truly went above and beyond! Everything was delicious, including the cafe au lait and cappuccino. This cafe is a treasure!

I've been coming here for years and have never been disappointed! So many flavors, so little time, and the kids who wait on you are always polite and helpful! I like to think Huell Howser still haunts the place with his big smile and wonderful charisma!!!

Newport Seafood Restaurant

My husband ordered the crab and kept repeating, “This is the best crab I have ever had.” That is saying a lot as we usually seek out Michelin rated restaurants when traveling. My fish fillet with basil was also very aromatic and delicious! Can’t wait to return! In the end, it was Memorable!

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.

Delicious burgers! Like every in-n-out ive been to the service is awesome! Place is busy most times and the drive though is typically a 20-25 minute wait during peak dinner hours. Hard to find a seat inside restaurant most times if you have a party of 4 or more but there are tables outside. Food for 3 for $12 is hard to beat..(with no drinks). Been there a billion times and only had a wrong order once. Not bad for a fast food place. I wish they had a bigger parking lot and more seats inside. A second floor would be nice! Bathrooms are always clean which is a huge plus!

Gus's Barbecue

Reviewed By lynndds - Sierra Madre, California

Two couples went here on a Saturday night. If we didn't have a reservation, we would have waited a long time. The place was really busy. The four of us each got something barbecued differently, so we could see the variety. Everything was great & the serving staff was attentive even though the restaurant was packed on a holiday weekend. Good beer, good ribs and a good time.

Luggage Room Pizzeria

Reviewed By snamber77 - Alhambra, California

This is my favorite place to eat. It's family friendly and its also a great place to go without kids too. They're extremely accommodating, best customer service of any restaurant around. The food is delicious, fresh and exciting. As a gluten free vegetarian, I love their Mother Earth pizza (with a GF crust), but I always add sauce on it. My husband is gluten free and enjoys their pizzas too. My dad is a huge meat eater, and loves the Gladiator Pizza, and he's usually hard to please but really enjoys it here. They have kids meals and kids size pizzas that come with fruit and fries. Their salads are really really good, fresh, tasty and finely chopped (so even the kids enjoy eating them). The only complaint is that the salad could be bigger since we order to share :).

Grill 'Em All Alhambra

Reviewed By Jim H

So I visited 'Grill 'em All' while on holiday (vacation) to California last year, on the recommendation of a local and regular. Being a massive burger fan (and an even bigger Metallica fan) it was a no-brainer.

I ordered the Metallica burger (of course) and it was delicious. The portion sizes are huge and good value. If you're into rock/metal music you'll no doubt enjoy the atmosphere and decor! I've already planned a return visit for my next holiday later this year!

Reviewed By ArieDiepen - Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands

The restaurant is already quite full when we enter. The atmosphere is nice and inviting. We order several dishes. Chicken curry, charbroiled beef and pork, wonton soup, noodle soup en of course the Vietnamese Spring Rolls. This is fun to eat. You have to enroll the Springroll with lettuce, mint leaves and bean sprouts. When this is ready you have to dip this in the special sauce. I enjoyed it very much. The food is good.

Reviewed By Randall W - Bristol

This visit featured Shiro's famous deep-fried whole catfish with fresh ginger inserted in slices along the fish. A mound of cilantro covers the head of the fish and is delicious to nibble with the fish bites. Served with baked carrots, green beans and scalloped potato.
Dessert is always special. we had fruit tart and cheesecake.

Excellent breakfast. Although line was long, wife and I grabbed a spot in the bar and ordered a full breakfast. Pancakes and sides were delicious. Unfortunately, biscuits and gravy tasted pretty average and could be better, but a solid breakfast for the price nonetheless. The ruby orange mimosas were also excellent!
