Avenal & Coalinga

Spent the week at these two locations.

First Avenal - tried out a previously mentioned place - Debbie's place. This is a small biuilding, sits maybe 15. Burgers and fries. But good burgers. Can order mini or regular size of any burger. Is on Skyline (the main road in Avenal) near the 33. Tried but could not locate Jerry's (??) - that was mentioned on a previous thread. Was told that it might be in the downtown area but was unsuccessful in findng it.

Also, Las Playitas - opposite side of street from Shell station in a stand alone building. Again small venue, maybe seats 20 maximum but decent Mexican food. Had the huevos rancheros and the salsa topping the eggs was good. I am told this is owned by the same family that has the original place in Hanford.

Coalinga - Phil and Donna's Country Deli 250 Van Ness (corner of Van Ness and Elm) 559-935-3325. Again, mostly burgers, but also wraps and sandwiches. Potato salad is very good.

I also tried a Chineese place in town (stand alone building) but would not recommend it. Can't think of the name but since town is so small you can't really miss it.
