I'm from the East and have been looking at houses in this area (good weather, houses not too expensive, not a lot of traffic. . . etc). I've made a number of overnight trips there, as well as renting a house for a week to get more time to explore the area. I think I've eaten in all the restaurants in downtown Fallbrook and haven't found anything special, where I'd particularly like to take a visitor, for example. I haven't explored Temecula other than on paper but that looks a little more interesting. But I don't want to have to make a 30-50 minute drive just to eat out.
Any favorites among the Chowhounds? Or is there a more focused foodie forum where I should be looking/asking?
