This is a fun place to go for wonderful food and atmosphere. The staff is actually dressed in 50s style and the restaurant has a red and white theme. Look for the cool ramps over head with a train circling.
Want a great burger? This is the place. Served with all the fixins, and for virtually the same price as Farmer Boys, you will savor the crisp lettuce and tomato as well as the fat pattie! Get a float, or a great cup of coffee to make your meal complete.
Although not primarily known as a breakfast spot, this is a delicious break from the IHOP, Denny's scene. The price is about the same, the food is amazing and there are far less people...so far at least!
This is a wonderful restaurant. The portions are plentiful and the food is absolutely delicious. Order the tempura and bring a large appetite, because it is fantastic. Although you will get a lot of food, it's Japanese, so you won't leave feeling stuffed!
The sushi is great, and their California Roll is done correctly...not too much avocado.
Woomi on Los Alamos has got it right. Unlike other "sushi" restaurants in the area, Japanese music is on the sound system and the place is decorated to create an aura peace and tranquility.
The staff is extremely polite and actually come around to see if everything is ok!
Relax and enjoy.
Judging by the amount of kids lined up for tournaments, sport and game cards must be the very IN thing for kids in Murrieta! MOG hosts tournaments nearly every week and the excitement on the kids faces is fun to see.
The shop is extremely clean and organized and the owner has categorized each card neatly.
Unfortunately, the owner's hours are sporatic at best, and many times children are dropped off by parents, or walk over after school, only to wait unsupervised several hours in front of the store. Also, the owner doesn't seem to be very friendly or compassionate about the situation, which can be troubling. However, this aside, it seems to be a very wholesome atmosphere and a great way to get the kids off the computer and out from in front of the TV. It's a nice, clean hobby.
Visit Julian California and stay at the Julian Hotel. It's tea time right after 4 will tempt you to jump off the Atkins train! Homemade scones and buttery delectible pastries will entice you to have yet another cup of tea.
After tea, wander around Julian toward sundown, when most of the touristas have gone back to the metro areas. At dinner time, check out the wonderful patio dining at the restaurant up the street. Go on, have that 2nd glass of wine! You will enjoy a leisurely stroll back to the hotel. Once back, with your own pass key, hang out in the parlor and meet other lodgers. Play one or a few of many games available on the shelf, or just sit and relax with a nice cup of tea.
Then, off to bed. The rooms are a bit small, but then everything was smaller in the 1800s! They are decorated in Victorian era style, with no TV. It's a fantastic aura and will enable real conversation...how refreshing. The beds are comfy, and many of ther rooms have their own WC, although there is a nicely appointed mutual restroom on the 2nd floor.
When you wake, the aroma of freshly baked bread and breakfast wafts up to your room. Enter the diningroom and enjoy a fantastic breakfast of eggs florentine, melt in your mouth breads and homemade oatmeal! I kid you not, this is the best breakfast ever. No need to rush, enjoy the ambiance. There is a fantastic scrap book on the history of the Inn. Check it out and find out that it was originally operated by freed slaves.
All in all, the Julian Hotel is a wonderful treat. And...some say it's a little haunted!
The folks at St. Marthas have operated the pantry for years. They help distribute food and clothing to the poor throughout the area. When Katrina struck donations came in by the truckful. The volunteers at St. Martha's are very friendly and treat everyone with respect.
On the store end, you can find some amazing bargains! All proceeds go to the needy, unlike other groups. Everything is clean and in good repair. You can not go wrong buying kids clothing at St. Martha's. They will out-grow it before they out-wear it.
See for yourself, you will be glad you did.
I recently purchased a home and needed a few things fixed. I called Bercks because, frankly, it was one of the first I saw in the yellow pages..."B".
I was not disappointed. Greg was dispatched to my home. In a matter of minutes he had done all the work on my list, cleaned up the work areas to perfection, given me a VERY FAIR price AND at no charge, fixed my drippy tub faucet! That's what I call service.
Call for an estimate, you will be happy with the service and the price.
Dubois is a gem! A friend of mine knows all the best day spas in the Inland Empire. She has spent over a hundred dollars on an hours worth of massage. Don't do it. Go to Dubois and get an amazing massage for 65.00. Swedish with aromatherapy.
The minute you enter the salon you know it's going to be a great experience. You are ushered to a "relaxation" room with aroma therapy, soft lighting and lemoned water. Believe it or not, this is where you fill out paperwork! It's a nice place to wait your turn for services in serene comfort.
The staff at Dubois is friendly and capable. I personally recommend the micro-dermabrasion series, frequenly on special. It's gentle, but thorough and includes a fantastic facial!
The masseuses are great as well, although a little chatty. Still Dubois is not only a lovely place to treat yourself, but a good value.
Ok, I moved here from San Diego a year ago. After recently purchasing a home I needed to buy a refrigerator. Guess what? You have to go to Hemet! Sears in Temecula has no large appliance department. I found it incredible, that apparently Hemet has a call for fridges and stoves but not Temecula/Murrieta! Come on people, you can afford it, expand the store and save us some gas money!
When you want to buy a movie, this is the best place. Mike and Paul at M & M are discount fiends. You can BUY 3 recent release DVDs for like 18 dollars. Used, yes, excellent condition YES!
This place is well known with gamers as they buy and sell the latest video games. The staff is knowledgable and customer service lives at M & M.
Good stuff, great prices.
Valentino's is a fantastic restaurant! Escargot to die for, although I would have preferred them in a mushroom cap. But, still the pasta, veal and such are on a par with metro restaurants charging far more. The waitstaff is professional in manner and attire. This is a great date spot, but is also a neat family dinner venue.
PROS: Great atmosphere and food
CONS: Hard to locate!
