I am fully aware of the amazing food within a stone's throw of Santa Anita racetrack. But I somehow have racetrack friends who don't eat "ethnic" food. (Best not to ask.... consider them "projects").
So: where can I go after a day at the races, to get decent food at reasonable prices with a full bar in Arcadia? The Derby: not an option because of $$ that most of us have lost and a level of decorum when we're all kinda sweaty and smelling of thoroughbred and defeat.
Peppers, across the street, may be the worst Mexican restaurant in California. Rod's is an authentic 50s diner in all the wrong ways.
Surely there's a decent bar 'n' grill nearby? Or a pizza/pasta place where you can get a martini? If so, I haven't found it.
