What to get: Willow Creek

Price: $10.25

Anna’s take: I ordered this meal May 5, and as much as I would’ve liked to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, all the Mexican restaurants I tried to visit were slammed with lines out the door and wrapped the building, so I went to the next-best place, MacKenzie River. I used to work as a server at the Carmel location, which has since closed, during my short stint in college. I love the Willow Creek sandwich, layered with smoked turkey, bacon, avocado, spinach, tomatoes, mayo and mozzarella cheese on fresh-baked bread. It is served with tortilla chips. Also, I always order Lodgepoles ($5.75), which is a slab of fresh-baked bread, cut into pieces, brushed with olive oil and garlic with mozzarella and served with marinara. They are delicious.
