Where do you eat when you go to Paseo in Pasadena?

We often go to the movies at Paseo, but we have yet to have a good dining experience there. None of the restaurants really do it for us. Are there any places within walking distance that you would recommend? Where do you go?

    I've enjoyed the Mexican restaurant at the Paseo. They have good margaritas, the food isn't too heavy, and their house-made tortillas are excellent. Try a quesadilla. No, really. Trust me.

    Roy's is certainly within walking distance, and may be the best bet for a good meal, though not inexpensive.

        Barney's Beanery has good food and beer. I like it.

        But there is a lot of restaurants in Old Town.

          El Toreo Cafe for Mexican (right around the corner from Cheesecake Factory on Fair Oaks)
