"I actually have three places in California"
I actually have three: Sauced BBQ & Spirits on First Street in Livermore, CA - great BBQ and beer. I had the Smoky BBQ Brisket Melt. It was awesome. I would go back just for that sandwich. They also have Rednexican Nachos which were outstanding and a meal in their own right. Worth the trip. Running Rooster on San Benito Street in Hollister, CA Best burgers in Hollister. Also have pizzas, burgers, salads, salmon, steaks, etc. Blue cheese burger is my personal favorite. Country Rose on San Benito Street in Hollister, CA Best breakfast place in Hollister. Right across the street from Running Rooster. Open for breakfast and lunch. Great food, good service and fair prices.
