Good places to eat in anaheim
« on: January 13, 2013, 09:43:27 AM »
At the request of others, here's the thread on good places to eat next to the Anaheim convention center (walking/ short taxi drive). Sounds like most will be staying close to the convention center/Disneyland. In downtime Disney you have the house of blues, espnzone, Catel, tortilla joes, Naples, jazz kitchen, and Earl of sandwich. In the garden walk, east of the con and about 5 minutes walking you have Cheesecake Factory, PF changs, McCormick Schmidt and bubba gump shrimp and some other places. South on harbor boulevard you have a red Robbin,  Joe's Crab Shack,Morton's, and other places. Ill post more places when I can remember or next time I'm up there taking the kids to Disneyland.

Roscoe's should be open by March. Harbor and Orangethorpe so about 1-2 lights down the street.

If you have a car, you're only a few lights away from K-Town and Little Saigon for some Asian food...

Thanks for putting together the list yrzfan! I know that was the complaint last year that there weren't as many food options in Anaheim.
...you had me at hello...

Definitely check out Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles when it opens for some major southern food goodness. Their Mac and Cheese is to die for. Also Earl of Sandwich at Downtown Disney is worth checking out. It's the only one on the west coast and their sandwiches are world class. Other than that, the food places are pretty generic down here.

They are. When they are fresh they taste mmmmmmmm. Just don't think about how bad they are for you when your face is covered in powder sugar and your fingers are coated in grease.

My bad I forgot downtown Disney also has a rainforest cafe. The closest Starbucks to the con is going to be in hotel next to the con.

It sounds like you pretty much have the list covered, Yrzfan!

I really enjoy Napoles.  The restaurant is nice, and they have a next door carry-out place where you can get a panino or a slice on the go (for fairly inexpensive).  We go there often on our Disney trips (my family as Annual Passes so we come up from San Diego a few times a month).
There's also a great bakery at the end of Downtown Disney that is closest to the security checkpoint to get into the parks called La Brea Bakery.  They have good breakfast sandwiches & panini.  Another restaurant in Downtown Disney is the Rainforest Cafe: it's close to the far end of Downtown Disney, near the monorail.

There is a great restaurant inside the Disneyland Hotel called the 55 Steakhouse.  It's hardly ever crowded (right next to Goofy's Kitchen, a good character breakfast if you want to take the youngins and get the Disney experience) and has great food.  It's a little pricy, but it's yummy.

Here's the website for Downtown Disney dining: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

In Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel, there's a restaurant called PCH Grill that has some good pizza.  They also have a character breakfast.

*edit*
sorry: I didn't see you added Rainforest Cafe later in the thread.

La brea just did a remodel. It's a nice small place to grab a bite. They make all their breads fresh. Napeols is kind of hit or miss on the service and quality of the food. Any of the restaurants in the Disney hotels will be great, but just remember it's Disney so you'll be paying a little extra. Each place is different you just need to pick what you want to eat. American, Mexican, Cajun, or Italian.

Any place with "diet-ish" food? I will probably be in diet mode at Wonder Con.

Jamba Juice. Rest assured the places have salads and diet-ish dishes.  I think if you stay away from the con hot dogs and nachos you should be good.

Those of you that will be traveling from out of town to WC post or message me what type of food you are looking for or things you want to do (nearest movie theater, other cool things to do besides disneyland, or shopping malls to send the half too while you attend the con).
