Good food in the Thousand Oaks area - any suggestions?
I am going to be in the Thousand Oaks/Westlake Village area around lunchtime tomorrow & I was wondering if there was any recommendations on where to go from my fellow 'Hounds. I'm open to anything really, although like most, I am watching the budget at this time of the year. Can't wait to see what you all suggest. Thanks!
My favorite restaurant in the TO area (I lived there for 5 years) was Crown & Anchor. Sure, it's pub food, but it's done really well. They make a great beef wellington, the salads are really nice, the fish tacos used to be a secret menu item that are now published, and the pizzas are hand made also.
I would dissuade you from P6 and Ch8.
I have a soft spot for the clam chowder at Hungry Hunter.
There really isn't anything great to recommend. Here are some good ones that won't disappoint or break the bank:
1st, I 2nd Brents. Probably the best bet in the area, try to get there early, but they do move the tables fast:
Brent's Delicatessen & Restaurant
2799 Townsgate Road, Westlake Village, CA 91361
For Mexican I like Lupe's (although there are some dissenters on this board). You will leave full and contented and it won't break the bank:
1710 East Thousand Oaks Boulevard, Thousand Oaks, CA 91362
Not to far from Lupe's, you can also get Mexican Food, along with hambergers, salads, etc., only at a higher price:
Harold's House of Omelettes
2440 East Thousand Oaks Boulevard, Thousand Oaks, CA 91362
Lastly, if you're a group you can do Chinese this place never disappoints:
3825 East Thousand Oaks Boulevard, Westlake Village, CA 91362
You won't go wrong with any of these places, just don't expect spectacular!
