While it may be tempting to indulge in theme park fare while visiting Anaheim, there is a world of culinary delights waiting to be explored beyond the gates. Disneyland’s on-site restaurants offer a diverse array of cuisines, but to truly experience the city’s food scene, a visit to the Anaheim Packing District is a must. This food hall boasts over 20 artisan eateries and a farmers market, providing a veritable smorgasbord of local eats. On weekends, visitors can enjoy live music and even a speakeasy bar. The Anaheim Brewery, a beloved spot for locals and tourists alike, also shares space with the Packing District. For fans of Umami Burger, the upscale burger joint has an outpost adjacent to Farmers Park. And for those seeking a unique burger experience, Slater’s 50/50 serves up patties made with 50 percent ground beef and 50 percent ground bacon. Don’t miss the chance to savor Anaheim’s diverse culinary offerings beyond the theme parks.

For those seeking a refined dining experience, THE RANCH Restaurant & Saloon comes highly recommended by locals. This establishment offers a delectable selection of steak and seafood, paired with farm-fresh seasonal sides. Another steakhouse favorite renowned for both its cuisine and service is the Anaheim White House Restaurant. However, if meat isn’t your thing, The Healthy Junk is a must-visit for vegetarians. Their menu boasts classic comfort dishes like burgers, pizza, fries, and chicken wings, all available with vegan and gluten-free options.
