Is there a GREAT Bloody Mary Mix ??? has Clamato (Cesar and Picante). Not cheap with how much you have to buy and shipping costs though.

Orinda/Moraga/Lafayette or Walnut Creek Pizza? Is there anything good here?

Rocco's Ristorante/Pizzeria 2909 Ygnacio Valley Road, Walnut Creek. Excellent Pizza and Pasta. Go on Sunday 11-4 PM and a three item large is $12.75 and pitchers of beer are 1/2 off. Monday's after five same deal. The pizza is worth it without the discounts. Free Garlic and or Basil upon request.

Also legendary is Pink's Pizza Parlor in Walnut Creek. Get it while you can they're closing on August 31, 2008.

Concord, CA chow hole

JJ North's Grand Buffet in Concord. All you can eat/drink. Includes soft drinks, milk, tea, coffee, salad bar, several entrees w/carving station (entrees vary each evening) and large selection of deserts. Costs about $10.00 per adult and children pay on a sliding age scale when under twelve years (very reasonable). Under 2 years old is free.

My kids think this is the greatest place on earth. They have fun making and creating their own floats, sundae's, pie ala mode. They went crazy when I should them how to make an old fashioned chocolate soda.

Best al pastor: Redwood City to mountain view

Taqueria Mar Y Tierra 1475 Broadway Redwood City is the best Al pastor I've ever tasted. The rest of the menu is excellent as well. Authentic Mexican food. Also has excellent seafood menu. Can't go wrong here....Doesn't matter if you try the Al pastor super burrito, tacos, tostadas, tortas, quesadillas, or nachos it's all good.

Best Burger in Bay Area?

East Bay and Peninsula are my stomping grounds. Has anyone tried the Claim Jumper(in Concord)? The widowmaker burger is awesome. Val's, Ricky's and Ernie's (all in Hayward) rank up there as well as Francesco's in Oakland.

Peninsula favorites are the Canyon Inn (Redwood City) Dutch Goose & Oasis (Menlo Park)and Kirk's (Palo Alto).
