If fast food isn’t your style and you want to actually sit down in a relaxed atmosphere, enjoy your food, and maybe take in a margarita or two, we can’t recommend La Costa Mexican restaurant highly enough. Not only does the restaurant have full service (and absolutely delicious) lunch and dinner menus, but the drink selection is out of this world. There is also an affordable, kid friendly menu just for the little ones. Plus, fun events for both the big and small go on regularly, so you never know just what you might find when you dine. Whatever it is, you will have a great time enjoying the food and fun only La Costa can provide.

There is also Dino’s Gyros nearby, offering authentic Greek favorites at an incredibly affordable price. You and your party can go in and enjoy beef, lamb or chicken gyros, Greek salads, falafel, cucumber sauce, hummus platters, freshly made pita bread, and any other Greek dish you could possibly want. Keep in mind, too, that most Greek dishes are perfect when you’re on the go, as you can simply hold them in your hand and eat as you stroll. This makes Dino’s a perfect spot for those who are hungry but who still want to take in the city while taking in a bite.

For those who prefer a little Asian flair with their food, K’s Teriyaki is a great choice. Whether you prefer classic teriyaki dishes, served with your choice of delicious fried rice or tender soba noodles, vegetable or meat tempura, authentic Japanese sushi, or a steaming bowl of Udon, it is all available here. If you do stop in, just make sure that you try the white sauce. It is, for sure, one of the main reasons people visit this establishment, and it is so popular, you can buy it by the quart to use at home.

Another favorite for Asian food lovers to check out is Sushi Maki. If you want to skip out on the “fake” Asian offered by most restaurants, like sesame chicken or boring beef and broccoli, and instead want to go for the real deal- delicious and fully authentic sushi rolls- this is your spot. The fish is always fresh and tasty and, believe it or not, the price won’t break the bank. Your sushi roll is guaranteed to be large enough to keep you satisfied, but at the same time, tasty enough to leave you wishing for more!

The restaurant also has an impressive drinks menu, and the laid back, charmingly decorated atmosphere is worth a visit in itself. When you combine that with yummy food, it will be hard to get you out the door when your vehicle is ready to be picked up.

There are daily drink and happy hour specials, an extensive cocktail list, and some delectable wines.

The best news of all is that each of these yummy restaurants is within easy walking distance of where your vehicle is being serviced or repaired. So, you won’t have to spring for a cab or take public transportation unless you really want to. Of course, there is always the chance that you will leave the eatery of your choice so full and satisfied that you won’t feel like making the trek back, so be prepared for that. Waiting around on their car is never anyone’s top choice, but if you come hungry, you won’t mind the wait at all. In fact, you might just be left wondering how long it will be before your car needs to be serviced again.
