Default Restaurant suggestions on East Carson?

Hi All!

I have some people in town and I wanted to take them to East Carson tonight for dinner. What restaurants do you suggest? We aren't looking for any specific type of food, just somewhere with a fun atmosphere that will be fun for my visitors!! Thanks!!!!

I can't say enough good things about Piper's Pub. Best pub food in the city I think. Be prepared for a food coma afterwards though! Dish Osteria is a great off-the-beaten path mediterranean Italian place. Very small, good wine selection, and the owner is an Italian guy that is extremely friendly. He'll always stop by your table. I hear great things about Cafe du Jour as well, but havent' been myself. The second two suggestions are a little higher end than Piper's.

I'll agree Piper's is good....though check their menu first as it's not everyone's taste. There's always Fatheads for a lively crowd.
Mallorca, Dish, Pittsburgh Steak Co., Cafe du Jour, for something a bit more formal;
Carson city saloon, Mullens, Marios or smokin joes if you want bar food that's better then the other choices.
I'd give Emilianos 2 big thumbs up if you like Mexican, lins asian fusion is good as well.

The above Took the words out of my mouth.. Pipers food is very good and always have some nice brews on tap.. Dish is great food, but def more expensive, worth it... Look at thier website

Fat Heads is great for sandwhiches and beer type venue; .. I personally like City Grill also.

Mallorca too me is not worth a trip , along with Pittsburgh Steak Co. , nothing too special IMHO

East Carson has an amazing variety of places. But if your key word is "fun", I'd probably go with Fat Head's.

Double Wide Grill is fun, too, but the food and service aren't stellar. I fifth the recommendations for Pipers', and will throw out Local as a suggestion, too.

Forgot about Local, it's fairly new & definitely worth checking out. I personally think the food at double wide is pretty bad & would skip it in favor of any of the above.

Nakama. They have a sushi bar and a hibachi area in the back where the chefs do thier fancy utensil flips and flame shows.

Fat Head's is also great –*I just always end up avoiding it due to the long wait. There's one place I totally forgot about - YO RITA! I haven't been there in about a year, but Kevin Sousa developed the menu while he was working on Salt of the Earth, and if it's still in good shape there then it's worth checking out for non-standard tacos. They have some crazy stuff on the menu.

No offense, but I think Nakama is one of the most overrated restaurants in the city. In fact, the food is flat out terrible. Definitely the worst sushi I've had in this city. It's completely full of south side club trash and is mostly just a singles scene for idiots.
