group lunch place Pasadena area for soccer team

gachimai Aug 5, 2010 02:04 PM

Our team of 13 needs a place to eat on Sundays after our soccer match, so not sure where to go. Most of our matches will be at the Rose Bowl, so we are looking for something in that area (this week is La Canada)

So, I'm trying to find a place where its ok for a group of 13 to eat after running around in the sun for an hour. I was thinking of a pizza place, any suggestions would be appreciated.

    How about Carmine's - just as you are coming in to South Pas on Fair Oaks. Good pizza.
    Also, further east, Domenico's. The one on Washington is pretty small, but if you want to drive to Santa Anita there are two within about a mile of eachother that would work and have extra rooms that I have seen sports teams in before. Good pizza.
    Tarantino's may be tight, but they are good.

      My team always ate at Continental Burger and we loved it. Great for the families, too.

        Definitely stay AWAY from Burger Continental. It may have been good at one time (15years ago?) but it's horrid these days. Slow service and bland food.

        The Hat is a good rec. Barney's Beanery in Oldtown is good for large groups too.

            A little farther to the East:

            Robin's BBQ on Rosemead Blvd

            Zelo pizza in Arcadia

            I'd recommend Slaw Dogs but I'm not sure the inside will fit 13 if anyone else is there.
