I'm going to be in Oxnard from the 12th through the 14th -- driving in on Friday, out on Sunday -- mostly to visit the Channel Islands National Park, but also to just explore the area. While I'll be combing the LA area board here, if there are any pointers people have to cool places, I'd be interested in hearing about them. I'll be alone, so places that are good for solo diners are appreciated, and moderately priced (anywhere from "great bargain" on up to the $20-25 range, although if there's some amazing must see expensive show-stopper place around that area, let me know!).
I tend to gravitate toward Mexican and "gourmet brewpub" type places, but I'm reasonably open-minded. I live in the SF Bay Area (San Jose), so I'm curious about the oft-mentioned difference between NorCal and SoCal Mexican styles, too.
Thanks in advance!
