Restaurants in Visalia, CA

American cowboy lore knows Visalia as the home of fine and fancy saddles ridden by vaqueros in the days when much of central California was still ranch land. Visalia Stock Saddle Company, dating back to 1870, still makes custom saddles, but as California cowboy culture faded, they moved to Oregon. Still, whether or not you need a ten-thousand dollar saddle, the town of Visalia is worth a visit for shawarma fries and gyro pita wraps at Pita Kabob Downtown Gastropub, for Thai pizza pie at The Planing Mill, and for seasonal artisan donuts made by Component Coffee Lab.
