Calhoun's Texas BBQ

Reviewed By Garcarcha - Los Angeles

After eating at Calhoun’s, I now wish I lived in Murrieta! I can’t say enough about how good this BBQ is. The meat is tender, juicy, and cooked to perfection. These folks have mastered BBQ. If you go there looking for a fancy restaurant or a lot of tables you’ll be disappointed. If you go looking for great BBQ, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

I ate there almost two months ago and I’m still thinking about it!

Trattoria Toscana

Trattoria Toscana is a quaint, boutique Italian restaurant that creates an authentic Tuscan-Sardinian-Italian cultural experience, rich in the appreciation of high-quality food and wine. Trattoria Toscana caters to those who savor authentic, home-made Italian meals that bring out the flavors of each ingredient. Chef Pietro, born in Sardinia, carefully selects fresh, local ingredients to create daily specials as well as imports from Italy to create high quality, homemade Tuscan and Sardinian meals. Here at Trattoria Toscana, Chef Pietro draws on his Italian and Sardinian roots to bring the community a true Italian experience, transporting his guests to Italy for a delicious, enjoyable meal. He believes that the best flavors come from fresh food, using the highest quality ingredients, prepared daily, just as they do in Italy. Chef Pietro prepares his dishes with care and passion, attending to every detail. He makes the pasta and bread from scratch each day. He rolls housemade tortelloni and ravioli by hand. His gnocchi is made in house with potatoes and imported pecorino cheese, using his mother's recipe. You can find the staples of Italian cuisine, olive oil and tomatoes, in many of his dishes. He chooses to use high quality, extra virgin olive and truffle oils from Italy to ensure that his dishes have the authentic flavors of Italy. He sun dries tomatoes by hand using fresh, organic tomatoes to accentuate the flavors of his dishes, such as our popular Pappardelle con Funghi. Chef Pietro refrains from preparing his dishes far in advance, in order to preserve the tradition of preparing his dishes on the spot. This technique requires time for preparation and provides our guests with a leisurely dining experience, a time to relax and enjoy the company of others, sipping a lovely glass of wine, upholding Italian dining tradition. Cuisine is a passion and a past time in Italy, a time to revel in delightful flavors using just the right ingredients, and investing the time in its preparation every day. The interior décor, inspired by Chef Pietro's Sardinian and Tuscan roots and woodworking background, creates a quaint, authentic Italian dining experience. Pietro's own sculpted functional artwork made from recycled wood, his hand-crafted wine bar tiled with stone, and exquisitely crafted Italian window frames filled with Tuscan hillside paintings transport you to a hilltop in Tuscany where you can enjoy tantalizing food, wine and a true Italian experience at the table. Come taste the joy of Italian dining here in Temecula!

Easy to miss this store front restaurant. Fairly small but were seated quickly and ordered wine and the tri-colour bruschetta,which was excellent. I had the gnocchi Gorgonzola and my wife had a chicken pasta dish, both were very good.

The service was interesting, started with a waitress and ended with a rather officious waiter who spent quite a bit of time at the bar with the owner. He also reorganized some tables, I am not sure Iwould want to be there when they are busy!

The Habit

new location in Murrieta - if you google it you'll find local news articles

Reviewed By Alexandra T - Murrieta, California

Compared to other fast food chains, the Habit is better. The service is quick, there is a system in place for ordering and getting your food. You are given a buzzer that flashes when your meal is ready. One person puts the order together while another actually presents it to you. And all the while you can see the cooks making the food in the kitchen. It's an efficient system. The burgers are okay, fresh but nothing special.
