When Jim Knudson bit into his first taco during dinner at a friend's house in 1949, he knew he had tasted something special. He added the item—which many diners were pronouncing "tay-co"—to the menu at his restaurant in Grass Valley, California. Determined to introduce the food to as many people as possible, Jim and his wife, Margaret, converted a 16-foot trailer into a kitchen on wheels. They adopted the nickname Jim had earned from one of his longtime customers and drove up to Lake Tahoe, where Jimboy's Tacos found its first permanent home.

Locals, tourists, and even members of the Rat Pack flocked to the tiny taco stand for the uniquely seasoned, parmesan-dusted ground-beef taco, the anchor of a growing menu. The family eventually relocated to Roseville, California, where they set up a small taco stand and began branching out to other locations in and around Sacramento.

Today, Jim Knudson’s daughter Karen, the current president of the company, carries on the legacy of taco obsession at more than 40 locations in northern California and Nevada. Guests who arrive early for breakfast might glimpse the cooks slowly simmering beans, mashing avocados into guacamole, and preparing their signature ground beef with trans-fat-free oil. In addition to classic corn-tortilla tacos, the menu holds the mega-size flour-tortilla El Gordo, golden-fried taquitos, and even a taco burger that fuses Mexican and American culinary traditions.

Visitors wrap empty hands and hungry mouths around Togo’s freshly crafted selections that stock a menu of sandwiches, wraps, and salads. Since 1971, Togo’s has been pairing meats, veggies, and cheeses with freshly baked artisan bread to create such handheld meals as The Clubhouse, with apple-wood-smoked bacon, turkey, and cheddar cheese, and Uncle Tony’s Italian, which cloaks salami, capicola, and ham in parmesan bread ($5.99 each).

Cheesesteak historians trace the sandwich's ancestry back to Pat Oliveri, a Philadelphian who combined sliced beef and onions over a Italian roll; once someone made the ingenious decision to add cheese, the classic combination was born. Today, Cheese Steak Restaurant's sandwich-smiths continue that noble tradition with more than 30 cheesesteak varieties.

Take your pick of either the classic, a chicken version, or a hoagie-style cheesesteak (topped with lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise), and you have the option to pile it with grilled onions, hot cherry peppers, or sweet bell peppers. Other varieties feature added ingredients such as roasted cloves or garlic, mushrooms, or teriyaki sauce. There's also a veggie-only option, and diners can order twister fries, steak fries, fried mushrooms, and zucchini sticks to as a side dish or in case they need edible confetti for a chef's birthday party.

The screens, which are the size of half a football field, boast a curve that encompasses vision to the periphery, filling sightlines more dramatically than reading glasses doodled with a Sharpie.

Spicy food is a great way to separate the men from the boys, the women from the girls, and the girls from the boys if they get too rowdy at coed canoe camp. Thai Fusion lets customers specify their dishes as mild, medium, hot, or Thai hot, for optimal sinus-clearing fulfillment. The menu at this family-owned-and-operated neighborhood hot spot features fresh, authentic Thai ingredients, and ably blocks light from your eyes when it's especially sunny. Start with an order of fresh spring rolls ($5.95) or savory satay chicken ($6.95), or practice your pronunciation of classic Thai salads to have them promptly appear before you in the hands of a friendly staff member ($7.45–$12.95). House specialties ($10.95–$15.95) feature such sweet and spicy fare as Nam Tok, a medium-rare beef marinated in Thai herbs and served in Thai hot and sour barbecue sauce ($10.95), and shrimp spiced and sweetened with chili jam, mango, bell peppers, onions, and cashews ($15.95). The restaurant's traditional and creative varieties of fried rice ($8.95–$12.95), stir fries ($8.95–$12.95), curries ($8.95–$12.95), and noodle dishes ($9.95–$12.95) round out the menu with options for carboholics and vegetarians alike.
