Moved from SF to Pleasanton...Please help.

Fussy Foodie | Jun 7, 2007 04:43 PM

We just moved from SF to Pleasanton and the lack of food options are killing us. Balazo can provide a decent burrito fix. Red smoke grill and Back forty in San Ramon allow me to get my BBQ on. Gimanelli's deli makes solid sandwiches. Blue Agave club has an awesome patio and pretty good, although expensive, mexican food.

Where can we get:

-A good burger (best so far is at Val's in Hayward but it's a trek to Hayward)

-pizza and/or calzone (the best so far is Amici's, and I have no interest in dealing with the crowds at Zachary's in San Ramon)

-dim sum (the one by stoneridge mall is decent but I'm sure there's better out here)

-chinese (non dim-sum)


-Mediteranean (gyro, shwarma, falafel, fresh hummos)

I'm also up for other options in the BBQ, Burrito/Mexican and Deli categories or any category not mentioned.

I'm really looking for places that are within 5-7 miles of pleasanton (castro valley, livermore, san ramon). Places open later than 9:00pm on weekdays would be a bonus, although that may be asking too much for Pleasanton.
