Don Quixote happens to be our favorite spot for delicious Mexican food in the Mount Hermon area. It's actually located in nearby Felton, just a short drive away. The live music is always a nice touch here, and the ambiance is just the way we like it, contemporary and casual. It's plenty romantic too, for those special dates. If you don't want to miss the game while you're out dining and drinking, don't worry because they've got TVs here for the sports fans. Great combination of sports bar, night club, restaurant, and more! Everything's great here, from the chips and salsa to the entrées! Stop by 6275 California 9 in Felton to find Don Quixote.

There's no finer place to enjoy some good conversation along with that tasty Italian food! They've got a nice beer selection here too, served icy cold just the way you like it. One of our favorite items here, and one of the surprises, is the Blue Moon Burger made with Italian Gorgonzola. The one that really crowns the menu is the Seafood Chappino. Fantastic!

Round Table Pizza
We have recommended Round Table Pizza so many times on these service area pages, and the reason for that is their family friendly atmosphere, their welcoming and accommodating service, and most of all, those excellent pizzas that you just can't get anywhere else.

Chopstix is just incredible. We really love this Chinese restaurant. It's cozy and comfortable, with very nice decor and a friendly waitstaff. But what really keeps us coming back for more is the wonderful food! The Chow Fun is our favorite, and it's great with either veggies or pork, and the garlic string beans are a nice pairing with just about anything on the menu. Their wonton soup is also noteworthy, and how about that Pho? You wouldn't expect to find that here, but there it is. The spring rolls are also worth a mention. We love the authentic decor too! 6249 California 9 in Felton, CA is where you'll find Chopstix.
We just had to recommend the Scotts Valley Jamba Juice location here, because it's one of the healthiest kinds of fast food that you will find. When you're in a hurry in the middle of the hard working day, there is nothing better than just stopping in for a great smoothie for lunch! They've got so many options here for the weight-conscious, for the gluten-free, for the lactose intolerant, and for those with food allergies.
