When you go:
Things we love the most about a drive trip to Temecula include the rural roads into the city. Places such as Fallbrook offer a great road stop, but save yourself for the Bob's Big Boy burger & malt in Temecula.
Dining is pure pleasure and there are many outstanding & award-winning chefs whose menus you may want to sample. One amazing Italian chef at Temecula Creek Inn's Temet Grill is Sal Giuliano, Executive Chef. He's traveled the globe and always is on the cutting edge of great menus and dishes served to hotel guests, locals and visitors staying at other hotels. Be sure to try one of his dinner menus or popular Sunday Brunch.
Another place you should try if you seek an unbelievable quality steak is Pechanga's Pechanga Resort--Pechanga has its on cattle ranch supplying a quality source of beef for the casino's restaurants.
These are just a few places you may want to try but there are countless great dinner and wine pairing events and menus offered at South Coast Winery and many other unique dining venues set among vineyards, overlooking golf course greens, and next to the casino action.
