California– We waited two hours for a table at a Chart House restaurant one Christmas. This year we’re checking out what’s open ahead of time and maybe will make reservations. Here is what we’ve learned so far:
- El Torito Mexican restaurants are open. Check individual locations to confirm.
- Bucca di Beppo is open
- Temecula – Temet Grill
- Long Beach – Queen Mary Buffet
- Nearly every hotel with a full service restaurant on site will have their dining room open for the holidays to feed their guests.
- Disneyland restaurants are open, as is the theme park from 8 a.m. to midnight on Dec. 25.
Here are some restaurants we’ll be calling to see if they are open, and then report back.
