There are many standard chains throughout Pasadena serving everything from salads to steaks, but there are a few that you may have overlooked. Check out some of the old standbys and newer chains that have arrived in Pasadena.
Rocco’s Tavern has long hours so that you can stop in anytime, from 11am to 2am. I always like having a late-night option for coming home at a random time after a concert or flight and Rocco’s is a little more elaborate than swinging through a drive-thru without going all out fancy. Rocco’s has a long late night happy hour each night as well as happy hours on weekends and weekdays. The menu is reminiscent of a New York Italian American eatery, so you can get a pizza, a sandwich or pasta along with a cocktail.
Gyu-Kaku has endless options for Japanese cuisine and also some really great happy hour deals on food and beer if you happen to be saving up for something special, like a house or vacation. There’s more to the Japanese BBQ menu than just a mass array of all you can eat options, there are also $10 deals that include a beer, appetizer and rice or noodle bowl. And there are coursed out options that include s’mores for dessert. If you haven’t been in a while, or if you find yourself needing a restaurant open on holidays, then Gyu-Kaku fits the bill.
Juicy Wingz is new to Pasadena, but has been filling up bellies in Burbank and Hollywood for a while. The menu at Juicy Wingz allows you to test your tolerance for spice with crazy spicy options as well as more neutral selections and even a chicken and waffles option. In short, wings of every flavor. If you’re not feeling wings, there are also boneless options as well as burgers and wraps and a stunning array of fried sides and appetizers. And the family owned and operated restaurant uses local, GMO-free products and better than usual hormone-free chicken.
Because sometimes, you just need to know what to expect from your food.
