All You Can Eat

A Chico News & Review Dining Guide

Maybe you’ve been dying to try a particular restaurant but you can’t remember where it’s located, or perhaps you just can’t keep up with the comings and goings of Chico eateries. Whatever you’re craving, let All You Can Eat be your guide. Twice a year, the CN&R puts out this comprehensive listing of Chico restaurants. Check it out. Feel like sushi? We know all the places. How about a nice glass of pinot noir? Sure, we can tell you where to go. From the area’s fine dining to pub grub, you’ll find it all in these pages.

On a budget? No problem. With our handy dining symbols you’ll see how much money you’re likely to spend and whether credit cards are accepted. And just so you don’t get confused, we’ve put a box next to every listing. Each time you try a new eatery, give it a check mark. Get out there and try new places!

In Chico, plenty of restaurants rely on fresh, healthful produce and other specialty foods that come from farmers and businesspeople living right in our back yard. As you’ll see in our feature stories, buying locally is good for the palate and the environment. Get a glimpse into the Saturday farmers market, a tradition for locals and local restaurateurs alike. And take a peek at some eco-friendly behind-the-scenes measures revealed by the folks at Sierra Nevada Brewery’s Taproom and Restaurant.

Whether you’re eating out on the town or cooking delicious local food at home, bon appetit!
