Neptune’s Net: Malibu, CA

img_3585

Ahhhh. Neptune’s Net. You’ve probably heard about it if you’ve been in the motorcycle world for more than five minutes. Located right along the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, it’s an ideal biker destination for lunch and scenic views along the coast.

What’s even better? Neptune’s backs up to some insane, twisty, canyon roads in the Santa Monica Mountains. Pro tip: Take the scenic route to the ‘net. It’s worth the extra couple of hours if you enjoy hairpins and switchback mountain roads.

Motorcycles are abundant out front and line the streets on the weekends when the restaurant is busy. Inside, or on the patio (since that’s a much more accurate description) you’ll find tables to handle most group sizes. It’s first come, first serve. So, if you’ve got a big group rolling in, learn to socialize and ask to share with some folks sitting at one of the picnic tables.

Prices, in my opinion, are a little on the steep side for what you get. I paid about $21 bucks for a “world famous” Neptune’s Clam Chowder Bread bowl and a Fried Calamari basket, which was filled mores with French fries than fried baby octopi. However, would I eat it again? Hell yeah! I can definitely get behind the “world famous” label on the chowder.

There’s plenty of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink options available in the coolers along the back wall when you walk in to the restaurant to order your food.

Before you jump back on your bike, be sure to walk across the street and enjoy the ocean views. You’ll usually be able to find some surf rats waiting on a solid set of waves, and if you’re lucky, a comfy couch to sit on while you watch.

GD Bros Burgers: Signal Hill, CA

GD BROS BURGERS
1798 E. Willow St. Signal Hill, CA 90755

Hours: 11am-9pm 7 days a week

Price: $$

What started out as a food truck is now a brick and mortar food joint, with two locations: Santa Ana and Signal Hill. A burger spot is a burger spot, although I would definitely place this one a grade above California’s beloved In-N-Out burger chain.

I took a stab at the Bojangoals: a fried chicken sandwich with Sriracha honey and coleslaw, with a fried egg and pepper jack cheese added. The menu is a-la-carte, so if you want some fries, you’ll be adding it to your order. Pro tip: get the parmesan truffle fries.

Be sure to ask about their milkshakes! Flavors are constantly rotating. We tried out the Oreo and Red Velvet shakes. Both were bomb.
