This Regional Restaurant Is One Of Southern California's Favorite Places To Dine
By Natasha Kayes|Published November 28, 2023
I was born and raised in sunny Southern California and will never tire of the West Coast, although I spent several years living in Southeast Asia, about as far from California as you can get. Wherever I am in the world, I love straying from the beaten path, experiencing local life, and discovering hidden gems - camera in hand. The beach is my happy place and when I am not there (or writing), you will usually find me baking, watching movies, and cuddling my pugs. I have traveled around the country and around the world, and it never, ever gets old. Being able to combine my passion for travel and my love of writing is nothing short of a dream.
When it comes to popular regional restaurants in Southern California, it is hard to pick one to put at the top of the list. Some favorite restaurant chains that started here have gone on to open locations across the country – even across the world! Popularity has led one regional chain to expand to over 30 restaurants, almost all right here in SoCal. I have memories of lunches with my family, late-night craving runs, hangouts with friends after movies, etc. at this iconic restaurant in Southern California, and I am sure many of my fellow locals have them too.
