Get Ready to Chow Down, Turlock!

Turlock Restaurant Week will offer deals and specials at 21 area eateries. The first-time event, which starts Friday and runs through Jan. 28, is meant to spur business during the typically slow post-holiday season and showcase Turlock’s diverse array of establishments.

Ali Cox & Company is producing the event and her Hey! Turlock event calendar venture is sponsoring. Each participating restaurant has donated two $25 gift cards, which will be given away through Hey! Turlock promotions. Diners don’t need to buy tickets and there are no entrance fees, just go to one of the participating restaurants and ask about the specials.

Some restaurants are offering discounts on popular items, others are creating special tasting menus for the 10-day event. Cox said she hopes Turlock Restaurant Week becomes an annual affair.

The participating restaurants are: Agave Azul, Angelini’s Italian Restaurant, Bistro 234, Center Street Grill, El Charro, Crust & Crumb, Dust Bowl Brewing Co. Downtown Taproom, The Grand Cru, JAMS209 Sports Bar & Grill, La Morenita, Latif’s Restaurant, Lisa’s Cookie Jar, Main Street Footers, Memo’s Cocina & Tequila Bar, Mundo’s Latin Grill, Olde Tyme Pastries, Red Brick Bar & Grill, Tesoro Fine Mexican Restaurant, Toscana’s Ristorante, The Tri-Tipery and The Udder Place.
