Lunch in Ojai

First time visitor. Looking for the one reasonably priced, casual place you'd pick if you were going there tomorrow. Thanks

  1. OMG. Go to Reuben's and have the chicken enchilada with mole. The mole will make you weep with happiness. Sorry I can't remember the name of the street...but it's off the main drag into town. Google it. You'll thank me...

    1. Bocalli's Pizza and Pasta restaurant is a five-minute ride out in the country, on the main road, the only business out among the orange/avocado groves. It's one of those places that's a regular hangout for many of the local residents and regular visitors. Seating inside or outside under the big old Oak trees. Food is good - not great, but if you want to experience the non-tourist side of the Ojai experience at an old-fashioned family run home-style Italian place - try it. Really good strawberry shortcake, too. Following link has photos and a menu.

      1. We have enjoyed lunch at Suzanne's:

        It is pleasantly casual, using fresh California ingredients for a nice lunch.
