I know the big run is coming on Mother's Day weekend, so there may be readers who are wondering where to eat in Fortuna. Here's my advice: if you like Mexican food, don't miss Las Casuelas. It is excellent! Living in the Sacramento area, we have lots of great choices, but my favorite Mexican restaurant is Las Cas in Fortuna. Everything is excellent-- tacos, burritos, chips and guacamole!
Also, try the Eel River Brewing Company. They serve great American Cuisine-- huge, scrumptious burgers, excellent fries, onion rings, etc. Prime Rib is served on certain days and has always been delectable. The pub has a great selection of award winning brew, too!
