Great Eats & Treats in Vacaville

If you’re visiting the Vacaville, CA area, you know it has a small town feel.  It is not far from the City of San Francisco yet it is not right around the corner.  It has great neighboring towns that do offer high tourism areas such as Napa, CA for wine tastings as visitors come in from around the world.  Here is a short list of a few of the good restaurants in Vacaville that draw in a decent local crowd and have good reviews online.

  1. 1. Rock and Brews

Newly opened restaurant in Vacaville is like a cross between the Hard Rock Cafe and BJ’s Restaurant.  It as a fun, casual, rock and roll vibe that is very relaxed.  The restaurant has food items ranging from authentic roast beef sandwiches to craft burgers and jalapeno poppers that are the biggest we’ve ever seen and great for sharing.  The tables are tall in some areas so if you have small children it could be a challenge, yet it is relatively family-friendly.  The location is not far from other nearby restaurants off of highway 80.  For a great meeting spot with friends and family, let Rock and Brews be your new go-to place.

  1. 2. Buddha Thai Bistro 

If you love Thai food, you have found your new second home.  Buddha Thai Bistro has amazing standard Thai dishes that will delight you and your family as well as a few menu items that are not as typical and worth trying.  Some of their menu items include a Citrus Fried Chicken with Rice, Cucumber salad, and for a treat afterward, the Mango Sticky Rice with sweet coconut milk is a great treat.

3. Fenton’s Creamery

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!  Fenton’s Creamery is the place to go for a sweet treat or and delicious meal beforehand.  With menu items listing items like a Crab Sandwich, Cobb Salad, or Patty Melt, they are sure to have something for everyone.  Afterward, they have so many options for an ice cream sundae, it will be tough to choose one.  For a very family-friendly atmosphere and a great way to bribe your kids to behave, Fenton’s Creamery is a hit.

  1. 4. Back Door Bistro & Wine Bar

One of the best places in town with the reviews on google and yelp to prove it.  Serving items on the menu such as; an Open Faced Salmon Sandwich, Fried Chicken Sandwich or Steak Salad you just can’t go wrong with any of them.  Being a fan of fish, the Salmon Sandwich is my go-to item.  Afterwards, they have a dessert comprised of an ice cream cookie sandwich with salted caramel flavor, if that is not up to the minute on food trends, I am not sure what is.  Enjoy anything and everything at this great restaurant and be sure to bring the family to enjoy the chef-inspired recipes you are sure to truly enjoy.
