Food scene

This restaurant is a walking distance from our home. It is our #1 recommendation. It is a bit of a dive and it is expensive for Chinese. However, if you are looking for great food and don’t really care about service or décor, you have found the right place. We talked with the chief once, he makes the hot sauce daily, it takes 4 hours. In fact everything is made fresh. We think it is the best Chinese we have ever had and most of our guest agree! 512 Sacramento St, Vallejo.

-This place wins award after award. It is a bit of a dive with 20-year-old Formica tables, but the food is absolutely worth the wait. Speaking of the wait, if you go there on the wrong night you would wait for hours. Try to go on a weekday or early on a weekend. 124 Tennessee, Vallejo

This is the best breakfast place in town. It is generally a great American grill. Imagine a nice styled Denny’s restaurant but where everything is fresh and high quality. 3288 Sonoma BLVD, Vallejo.

This is a higher end Indian restaurant. The food was truly superb. It was the single best Indian place we ever found in the Bay Area. The standard has fallen but not necessarily all that far. They have a lunch special for about $12. A word to the cautious. They don’t pull punches on the spicy level here. If you only like mild, you may not be able to eat at this restaurant. 2032 Columbus PKWY, Benicia.

This place is an excellent dive. They have very inexpensive lunch specials served with plastic utensils. Friends from India told us that this is a 100% Indian street food experience. If you are looking for fast authentic Indian at about $6 a person, this is the spot. 4380 Sonoma BLVD, Vallejo.

This is walking distance and right on the water front. For that reason alone, we love it. It is a loud, mostly locals bar. They serve some food but the reason to go there is for the fresh beer and the nice view. 289 Mare Island Way, Vallejo

By appointment only, this distillery does tastings or tastings and a tour. It is located in a beautiful yet totally funky 1800’s building. Tasting spirits isn’t like tasting wine and the staff is super helpful. 1097 Nimitz Ave, Vallejo.

full disclosure this is all the way in Petaluma CA. However, if you are serious about beer you are going to love this place. It is a large brewery turned into a theme park. They have several live music areas and indoor and outdoor dining. The food is affordable, and the beers are great. It is a nice spot to hang out for lunch. Try “a little sumpin sumpin”.

This is our absolute favorite restaurant of all time. Former bank turned popular, upscale Italian restaurant with some seating inside the old vault. Amazing food, amazing wine, and amazing service. Great scene as well. We recommend calling for a reservation before making the drive. 1st St, Napa, CA
