    Favorite near-Disneyland dining (breakfast, lunch and dinner)

    I am planning my yearly trip to DL (from NJ) and I have been thinking about food.

    What are your favorite places to eat outside of the parks and DD (within a short drive)?

    Here are mine:

    Breakfast: IHOP.... pancakes rock!
    Lunch: El Pollo Loco... we don't have 'em here
    Dinner: Tony Roma's.. again, not in NJ


    BTW, I found this site:

    http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/...211&forum=6&15

    which has great photos of the old Sambo's restuarant in Anaheim. There is still a Sambos in Santa Barabra. Maybe I will stop there when I am up north.

    I'd like to know what others think too. I want to invite some friends for a birthday breakfast for myself on the 28th of this month and the only time I can get at the resort is 7:30. Not going to be a big turn out for that!

    Just so you know, after church my parents and I often go to the Back Bay Cafe which is located inside the Newport Dunes Resort in Newport Beach. They have a nice brunch and is in a beautiful setting on the Upper Newport Bay. It's a bit of a drive, about 20 minutes from Disneyland, but it is a nice setting.

    I've only eaten at Mimi's. Yummmmmm.
    But there's a Dave and Buster's nearby, which I totally recommend.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Dave and Buster's? Really? I have heard really good things about the Dave and Buster's in Washington DC.

    That might be worth doing! They have video games, right??

    There is a great little place on Ball & State College called Willy's. Better check to see if they are open for breakfast on Sundays. If you like Cafes there is a Busy Apron on Lincoln and Anaheim that has good breakfasts.

    Thanks Chad! Those are some different ideas other than the IHOP on Harbor or wherever it is...

    I'll look into it!

    Yes, it's at that mall there, I think on Chapman?
    They have games (and you can collect tickets for cheesy prizes), DELICIOUS food and outstanding drinks! It's one of my fave places to eat! They always have specials going on, too. Check the Web site. Haven't been to this one, but all the others I've been to have been excellent!
