Feast on These Stockton, California Downtown Restaurants

There's enough to see and do in downtown Stockton to fill a night out every day for months. The best part is the food, with dozens of restaurants offering fare from around the world.

Choice abounds when it comes to restaurant offerings in Downtown Stockton. Think of a type of cuisine, and there's a good chance you'll find something to help that hankering. We've gathered a small sampling of the options available on your next visit downtown.

Blazin Cajun

Blazin Cajun is another relative newcomer to downtown, recently celebrating its first anniversary. In that time they've racked up quite the local following with their authentic Louisiana flavors. Fans rave about their fresh shrimp. In fact, it's the go-to place for seafood for locals and people who live within driving distance when they need a fix. You can dine for less here with your Stockton Savings Pass.

Nash + Tender

While Nashville is known for country music, after eating at Nash + Tender you'll think that city should be known for chicken instead. Fortunately, Stockton benefits from the import, as their southern-inspired down-home menu offers various takes on chicken that are all amazing. They also offer a handy spice guide so people know what they're getting into. There are six levels, ranging from "country" which has no spice, all the way to "Stupid Hot" which is offered in-restaurant only after the guest signs a waiver. We all have that one friend who claims they can eat anything spicy, this could be a fun way to see if they're all talk or not.

The Downtowner

If you're in the mood for some comfort food, then make your way to The Downtowner. They've mastered the rare combination of creating soul-warming food that is also far healthier than those meals tend to be. Add in some local, fresh, and seasonal ingredients and you've got a delicious meal that won't make you feel guilty later. As we're heading into the winter months, drop by for their chili that is sure to warm you up.

Papa Urb's Grill

If you've never tried the wonder that is lumpia, then you need to get to Papa Urb's Grill immediately. They are the Filipino analog to Chinese egg rolls and are quite simply, amazing. Better yet is Papa Urb's take on this traditional dish. The restaurant is also loved for the pork belly sandwich and sisig fries. Enjoy a meal there and you'll be forgiven for thinking you've been magically teleported to the Philippines.
