Simi houses one of our favorites, Red's! On Sycamore and Cochran. My S.O. and I always share a combo with an order of onion strings. Their caesar salad is fab and if you're lucky, you'll arrive on a day when their over sized hot fudge sundaes are complementary. Happy Eating! :) KQ

Dakota's isn't bad. They are trying to redo the menu gradually. Remove item likes nachos and wings as apps. They want to be a full blown steak house. The food isn't bad, and the atmosphere is even better.
There's Johnny Carino's but it's like a Macaroni Grill, I haven't had the food, but I can only imagine it being a restaurant serving stuff that came from Sysco, #10 cans and all.
