The Hophead Public House in Scotts Valley, CA
Guy, you have to try the "Great Balls of Fire" appetizer @ the Hop Head Public House, located near Santa Cruz, CA...not too far from your home town. The pulled-pork fries are even more amazing! The owner Jay is doing it right having everything made fresh in-house, with amazing local brews on tap to wash everything down. If you make the journey, I can recommend other spots, such as Hwy 1 pizza and the Assembly, among many more. I know you featured the Santa Cruz diner and Aldo's before, but it's time to make another trip to Santa Cruz and feature some of our newest and best DDD's!!! Kind and best regards!
