Revolucion 1910 296 Lincoln Center (209) 955-0100, Full bar. Lunch, dinner, and Sunday Brunch. $-$$.

Javier Del Castillo started a revolution, or rather Revolucion 1910, his authentic Mexican restaurant that has quickly become a local favorite. Using fresh ingredients and only serving entrees that originated in Mexico, patrons will find a menu full of small plate entrees designed to bring out the best of authentic Mexican flavor.The corn tortillas are all homemade, as are the sauces and vinaigrettes made to fit each entree. Chili peppers are used in most dishes for their flavor rather than spice, in inventive entrees such as tacos al pastor or chile relleno con huitlacoche and Mexican oaxaca cheese. Be sure to try the tres leches cake for dessert, with margaritas made from only the highest quality tequilas from agave nectar, and lime juice squeezed fresh for each drink. Sass Bar & Grill 110 N. El Dorado St., (209) 808-4058 Full Bar. Open for lunch and dinner. $$

The warm and contemporary décor in Sass is inviting and excites the senses with its unique accents and attention to detail. The excitement is only multiplied when you see their eclectic menu, with cuisine inspired by flavors from around the world and local ingredients that showcase the wonderfully fresh produce available in San Joaquin. Enhance your meal by their selection of local wines, or a chilled cocktail from their bar. And in the warmer months, don’t miss the opportunity to dine on their romantically lit sky terrace while enjoying the Delta breeze as you overlook Stockton’s waterfront. Sharing so many impressive elements, Sass is a special place to dine with family and friends year round. Shirasoni Japanese Restaurant 3249 West Hammer Lane, (209) 473-2525, Beer and wine. Open for lunch and dinner. $$

Shirasoni is a triple threat, operating as a steakhouse, sushi bar, and teppanyaki restaurant all in one. Hungry guests can choose to sit at the sushi bar

or in their large dining room where talented chefs prepare your dish while putting on an authentic teppanyaki dinner show. Watch as professionals perform tricks, flipping their utensils and chopping your sizzling veggies right in front of your eyes. Enjoy a juicy steak or try one of their more traditional Japanese dishes. If you’re just stopping for a quick bite, have a seat at their intimate sushi bar for a taste of their fresh sushi or sashimi. Try one of their unique creations, like their Firecracker Roll, for a spicy surprise. Stockton Joe’s 236 Lincoln Center, (209) 951-2980, Full bar. Open for lunch and dinner. $$-$$$

10447 E. Waterloo Rd., (209) 931-4019, Full bar. Open for lunch and dinner. $-$$

At this fun restaurant, they really know how to mix it up on the grill. One of their signature

dishes is the savory barbecued ribs, served as an appetizer or an entrée. The ribs, which are best paired with Bette’s world-famous pesto, are tender to the point of melting away in your mouth. It is likely visitors will find this restaurant bustling when they visit, so during peak hours, be prepared for a lengthy wait. If that doesn’t suit you, they also offer their entire menu for take-out orders, and they even offer catering. Yasoo Yani

326 E. Main St., (209) 464-3108 Full bar. Open for lunch and dinner. $-$$

This downtown restaurant, open since 1975, is a classic eatery where the food is as eclectic as the diners. Mothers with their toddlers settle in next to prominent businessmen in ties for everything from a sturdy American burger to Greek souvlaki. Don’t be intimidated by the Greek side of the menu or the local luminaries—souvlaki is simply the Grecian version of shish kebab, served on pita bread, and at Yasoo Yani, everyone gets the same fine family service. Don’t even get us started on the honey-drenched baklava for dessert.
