Need recs for a large group

alwayshungrygal | Mar 28, 2012 04:37 PM

Hi SD Hounds, I need some recs for a group of 17 high school students (a jazz band) and 6 adults. We are staying at the Doubletree on Hotel Circle and need 2 breakfasts and one lunch. Saturday is the hard day, with little time for lunch (exact timing may change due to the performance actual start time):

10 am leave hotel for performance at San Ysidro HS on Airway Rd.
12:30 leave HS for hotel
1:30 leave hotel for Seaworld

9:30 am leave hotel for trip to Disneyland and then home that night

I'm driving in my car but everyone else will be on the bus. We'd like to avoid fast food if possible and budget is a concern, since the trip itself is a big expense. I can drive to pick up food if needed as long as I know where to go. My son (their teacher) thinks the lunch decision may end up being spur-of-the moment but I'd always rather be more informed than not.

Any thoughts on where the group can eat? One other factor is most of the students are male, only 4 girls. The adults are even, 3 men 3 women.

Thanks for any help you can provide!
