Lompoc and Yuma? Strange bedfellows...
By "shut down", I presume for the off season, not "for good"?

Ed (from Yuma)

No, Frank's relocated, and The Farmhouse closed for good. The latter is missed by yours truly. The food was innovative and tasty.But that location has not had a truly successful restaurant since I lived in Yuma, which is too bad because I liked Mi Playita and loved Viejo Loco.


D@mn that looks yummy.


This looks like a place we'd go to on a regular basis. How nice to have good food in a nice environment.


One of these days (when I'm on vacation and the weather is 40 degrees cooler, haha), we'll have to make the drive out to Yuma to try out the places you've recommended.

As for Lompoc, I recommend Samantha's Filipino & American Diner. The city also has cool murals scattered throughout.

Another update - I just read in the local paper that Frank's is closed for good at the new location also.

Yeh, Cathy, it is a good local place. And some of the food tastes and looks great, billy.

Yuma does have some good places to eat, cc, but it's not an eaters' Mecca. If you can make it to the area on December 19, 2015, and don't mind crowds, the Tamale Festival in nearby Somerton is unique. Last year over 40 vendors and 30,000 visitors. Best tamales I've ever eaten. Probably the area's premier culinary event.


Thanks for the info Ed!
