After a long day driving I will be staying out near the airport. Is there any good food to be had near here? What about the Willow Creek Grill? Thanks.

    Willow Creek is a great choice. If you like a good pizza Cassanova Pizzeria is a little bit farther down on Vista Ave. Either are great - enjoy your stay.

      Thanks enbell. Pizza is a favorite but I think Willow Creek looks more interesting. I eat sushi, chicken, and seafood. Do you have any menu recommendations?

        I'm not a meat-eater, so my experience might not encapsulate your preferences. The asian and graak salads are good, as is the portobello sandwich. I have subbed a veggie patty in the greek pita and fish tacos also. The garlic mashed potatoes are served in individual ramekins, and they must go under the broiler for a few minutes before being served - because they have a little crust on top that is soooo good! I don't know if they are still on the menu, but the last time I was there they were trying sweet potato tater tots which I thought were pretty good. As for Raw Sushi - I am obviously not a traditionalist as I don't eat fish, so I appreciate the inauthentic fusion rolls (kappa maki gets a bit boring over time). Happy travels, enjoy your stay!

          Thanks enbell. Your ideas sound so much better than normal road food. Keep up the good board work.
