St. Helena Area, inexpensive restaurant recommendations
Taylor's Automatic Refresher (933 Main St. , St. Helena) can feed you well. They always have good soup specials. They are a hamburger & fries type place, but there is plenty more on the menu, check the link. Outdoor seating with heaters- best in good weather.
Also, Bosko's Trattoria, (1364 Lincoln Ave, Calistoga) is cheap and good. The food is Italian Californian, in the $6 to $12 range. They have a wood fired oven which puts out really nice pizza and panini ($8). I think they are www.boskos.com .
When I asked for inexpensive restaurants. I meant not expensive, not The French Laundry, Tra Vigne, or Terra. Otherwise called moderate in price.
So far have been to Tomatinas three times ( veggie pizza, braised lamb shank with palenta, and radicchio risotto) all excellent, thanks to the recommendations from chowhound.
Please give me more ideas since I may get into a rut
