        My 2 cents: Skip Renegade and go to Richardson's, Carlsbad, The Mission, or Roaring Fork.
        Definitely skip P. Bianco - trust me, the hype is all just hype- you have better things to do with your time and plenty of other better pizza places.

        On the ++ side: Binkley's is awesome, hope you are nice and relaxed for a looong meal.
        FnB is super, wish there were more places like it.

          Do binkleys for sure

          Lunch @ noobu is good I would skip dinner there

          @ lunch the pork sandwich is good and if ur drinking get a devils haircut (even ikf ur not get one they are stellar) the pancake thing is good as is the soft shell crab sandwich

          Dinner is overpriced and not worth imo and there r better options

          Nobuo is actually a great choice for either lunch or dinner. I just viewed the menus side-by-side, and they overlap considerably in terms of offerings and pricing. Unless the lunch portions are substantially larger, I have a hard time understanding the recommendation for choosing lunch over dinner at Nobuo, especially given that the dinner menu is more extensive.

          If you have your heart set on the tonkatsu sandwich, then you should definitely opt for lunch there. If not, then I can see no reason to choose lunch over dinner.

        FnB doesn't have lunch unfortunately but it would be a great choice for dinner!
