Where do you chow down post-ride most often?

Okay, so lots of talk in the different threads about places you like to go after a ride, either fast food (grab what you can) or sit-down and chow. So, I thought I'd start a poll (out of curiosity). If you mark "other" in the poll, please tell your favorite spot. This can be a place you love after a particular ride/route/organized ride or a good standby on any ride you do. Even after you vote, feel free to give names to all of your favorites, especially if they are family-owned joints or they serve excellent margaritas.

Hugo's in the valley. Usually the black bean quinoa burger. But everything there is good, if pricey.

I love that place too, but now since they opened Hugo's Tacos, I sometimes head there. I love their different salsas.

Speaking of... I had some amazing salsa at Senor Fred's recently. Very fresh, and the perfect combination of spicy with a hint of sweet (pineapple maybe?).

Senor Fred's is in my neighborhood and I wish they had been yummy, but my experience was not a good one. Perhaps they have improved. Casa Vega is a good spot but not for post-ride.

You're missing some really important places...

Like Del Taco or Rubio's Fish Tacos

and local hangouts like John's or The Hat... nothing like either a patty melt or a pastrami sandwich after a hard MTB ride!!!!

Yes, well, this would be the purpose of my thread, to be informed... But I was thinking the standard-by-the-freeway type places with the poll. Oops...just corrected this as I realized I hadn't voted.

Post-ride eats for me are generally Cuca's (Local, Redlands, burrito stand.), or Chipotle.

As you can see, Denny's, IHOP, Tommy's and Taco Bell aren't high on anyone's list.

Try it again this way...

Del Taco
In-N-Out
Carl's Jr.
Burger King
Jack In The Box
Other

and see what happens... OK In-N-Out will still win hands down so maybe conceed that and leave off In-N-Out maybe add Rubio's, McDonald's or Arby's

Eating fast food is a last resort for me. I prefer the smaller restaurants so that I can experience flavor and service (I like food to be served to me after a ride cause I'm lazy) and my current favorite is...

The sushi place across the street from my place, Mugen's. The chef is pretty funny and since I go there all the time I get good eats dropped off for me to try and the sake is always being poured!

I think we can all say home is the best place but then the second choice would be some kind of comfort food like french fries and burgers or tacos (including lengua). "After a ride" would be mid morning or noonish and my favorite sandwich place would be De Simone in Huntington Beach. On Edinger and Springdale in the same center as Home Expo and Smart and Final. Not a chain, every morning they roast their own turkeys.

Most of my rides end at home and I've got a hard time chowing down and negating the entire workout...but, I'm a Rubios man, through and through.

It's quite the faux pas to go to a nice place when you've got a century of sweat, snot, spit, salt, grit, grease, oil, Texas Toothpaste, eye goo, and other road miscellani all over you.
