One other place that we seem to end up every once in a while is Alberto's. It is a total hole in the wall mexican place I think open 24 hours down the street. It is delicious! Their carne asada nachos are YUM.

Los Sanchez - Mexican counter service place on Garden Grove Blvd, 3 miles south of DLR via West Street aka Disneyland Drive. Always hopping, authentic stuff.

Original Pancake House - On Lincoln Ave east of Harbor Blvd a couple of miles. Rated best breakfast in OC by the Orange County Register. Opens 6am daily.

I tried Mimi's last trip and enjoyed it. I don't rent a car and am unsure about public transportation, so I am limited to walking distance or taxi.

We've had the opposite experience. Eaten twice at BG and we thought both times just awful whereas we've eaten at CF several times...cheesecake great, food ok to good.

There are a lot of little places around that are not part of any chain. My favorite near the park is a place called Carolina's.

http://www.carolinasitalianrestaurant.com/

Fun little place with very good food. It is on Chapman, just a few miles from the park.

The best fish place around with excellent chowder is at least a 20 minute drive. Service is outstanding and the wait staff is very humble and efficient. It is called "The Original Fish Company" and it is in Los Alamitos. Just drive down Katella to Los Alamitos Blvd, make a left and it's on the right. But again, 20 minute drive each way. The atmosphere is a bit more formal, although jeans are still welcome.

http://www.originalfishcompany.com/

I've been to Joe's Crab Shack a few times and do really enjoy the food and the experience. Very fun place. Totally different than the Fish Company. Very casual and eclectic. We usually go to the one in Long Beach but the Garden Grove location is closer.

http://www.joescrabshack.com/

Another local favorite is BJ's

They have an excellent menu and great food. Plus they have some local brews for those who like to sample different types of handcrafted beer. The Pizza is outstanding and is where they made their name in the early days.

http://www.bjsbrewhouse.com/

I also recommend Knott's chicken dinner restaurant. Very good "down home" cooking.

Thumbs up Let's hear it for Shakey's!!

My wife and I grew up outside Washington, and Shakey's was far-and-away her favorite pizza joint. Nothing else came close.

Now, 30 years later, the only place you can find what's left of the chain is in California.

As I started drawing up plans for our first Disneyland trip in about 10 years, I asked her if there was any place special she wanted to eat.

Without missing a beat: "Shakey's! Find one in Anaheim! Please!!"

Looking forward to it -- and so much more -- when we visit next month.

Some people like what they're familiar with and/or they like the memories associated with it. I, personally, don't care for chain restraunts and try to avoid them on vacation when I can. Like Buca Di Beppo, I like it, but we have that home, I can get it any time. I want my vacation meals (the ones we eat out, the sandwiches we make in the room are usually just like the ones we make at home, lol) to be special, different, even if I run the risk of a less than perfect meal.
