Every year we visit CA & every year we have to stop at In N Out Burger. Great fast food at reasonable prices. Always good! Chocolate shakes are out of this world. Order your burger anyway you want it. This place is always busy but you are always served fast, hot & delicious food.

Filippi's Pizza Grotto - 114 W Grand Ave, Escondido, CA 92025-2602 - 760-747-2650

TripAdvisor Review: 

Great family style Italian. Been coming to this location since I was a kid an still love it. Can get busy especially in the summer, but worth the wait (and weight). Pizzas weigh a ton. There have to be a lot of busy cows making all that cheese. Enjoy with friends or as a couple. Great experience.

Fresh, attractively presented, delicious Mexican food. Locally famous for its delicious chicken soup and fast, courteous service.

Canyon Grille - 8860 Lawrence Welk Dr, Escondido, CA 92026-6403 - 760-749-3253

TripAdvisor Review: 

My wife and I had breakfast here on our 1st morning here at the resort and it was great. I had the ham and cheese omelet and it was very good. The thing I liked was the fact the prices were very reasonable. Not high like most hotels are when you eat in their restaurants.

Cocina Del Charro - 890 W Valley Pkwy, Escondido, CA 92025-2535 - 760-745-1382

Cocina del Charro has been in Escondido for a number of years and the move into this location really enhanced the experience this restaurant offers. Great food and service....excellent ambiance.

Vincent's - 113 West Grand Ave., Escondido, CA 92025-2601 - 760-745-3835

TripAdvisor Review: 

Consistently the best food and service in North County for the last fifteen years. Excellent wine list, personal service from owners and staff set it apart.

Top quality, local products featured.

No doubt in my mind that, following his recent death, Vincent's wife and staff will continue to provide an outstanding dining experience to patrons from all over San County.
