In Southern California, we hit the car show season and we hit it hard. Often times the crew is so busy we don’t have time to get a good lunch, so after every show we like to unwind and get our grub on at one of our favorite eateries. In different cities we tend to have our go-to spots:
We typically have an early call time for SpoCom Anaheim. Luckily it’s a short drive to Downtown Disney, we tend to migrate to ESPN Zone for food, drinks, and a competitive round of basketball and hockey. It’s entertainment and food under one roof.
Between set up for Wekfest LA and the opening of the event, we always have a couple hours to kill. Located an Uber ride away, is Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffle. There’s no substitute for a savory fried chicken and cinnamon infused waffle, with gravy and syrup of course!
At SEMA, it’s often difficult to find a restaurant that can seat a large group of people and food that will cater to everyone’s taste buds. Inside Caesar’s Palace is Bacchanal Buffet. Bacchanal has an upscale setting with 15 or so daily chefs. The chefs will add their own personal touches to the dishes. Current price for dinner is $52, so keep your gambling to a minimum or place that one last bet to pay for yourself and a friend. Don’t forget to wear your fat jeans for this round.
After AutoFashion’s VIPFest or during set up intermission for Extreme Autofest our favorite is Phil’s BBQ. It’s quick, simple, and good eats. With 3 locations to choose from, you’ll have to get all your ducks in a row, or you can wait at least an hour or two.
Wekfest San Jose is a two day set up. Saturday we set up, Sunday is the event. After set up on Saturdays, we head to San Pedro Square Market. Tucked away in the marketplace setting is Konjoe Burger Bar. An Asian and Pacific Island inspired burger joint which brings Far East flavor to meat and poultry. Konjoe, Muay burger (no longer on menu), and Pork Belly Boas are some of our favorites.
Got you feeling some kind of way in your tummy? Let us know if these are the spots you like to eat at too or if you have recommendations on where we should go next!
