Cactus, The Mexican Restaurant
18961 N. Lower. Sacramento Rd.
Woodbridge, Ca.

Occupying a circa-1874 building, this terrific restaurant brings a bit of history to the dining experience. Cactus's creative menu offers a counterpoint - contemporary cuisine that both honors tradition and updates it. Sizzling, spicy fajitas are a perennial favorite, and tamales are eminently satisfying, well-filled and hearty. Even enchiladas boast fillings of shrimp, crab, and avocado, reflecting Stockton's proximity to the sea. If decisions come hard, consider a combination plate, and don't forget to indulge in the homemade chips and salsa.

Kiley's Diner Theatre
1030 S. Hutchins St. - 209-366-2100 - Dinner Theatre - Do you want to get out on the town and do it all: dinner, desert and live theatre? All three come wrapped as one at Kiley's Dinner Theatre, a virtual institution for weekend entertainment. On Friday and Saturday nights, enjoy musical groups, theatre or comedy while chowing down on some great grub. If you don't live nearby, it's worth the pilgrimage for this action-packed hot spot, ideal for couples with a desire to rekindle their romance or those looking for a fun night out. / Former Helwig's Corner. Herb Helwig had the Helwig's restaurant from 1962-1973 (and it was a German Smorgy), and his daughter Phyllis (Lehr) ran a beauty parlor in one of the suites on the right. It was the Three Bears restaurant after that and then Mountain Mike's Pizza.
La Luna Cafe & Bar / Former Porfie's Mexican Restaurant / El Charro Cafe
910 S. Cherokee
(Porfie's comments Mexican - Nothing beats a Porfi's melon margarita on a hot day, or any day, for that matter and whether you're the type who likes it on-the-rocks or blended makes no difference,  Here you'll find standard south of the border fare like beefy tacos and enchiladas (pile on the salsa for flavor that packs a mighty big punch). Do keep in mind that regulars and there are lots of them go ga-ga for house specialties.)

Strings Italian
2314 W. Kettleman Ln 209-369-6400

Italian - First impressions can be deceiving, as is the case with Strings Cafe. The modest location (nestled in the Walmart shopping center) doesn't do it' flawless  reputation justice. You have to stop in, if only to taste the salad-which is really quite interesting-sprinkled with savory croutons, raisins and a dressing that pulls it all together with memorable panache. You thought you were stopping a salad? Not a chance. You've been reeled in like the rest of us. Move on to the the lasagna which is superb, or any of the seafood dishes which are surprisingly fresh and flavorful.
