A Necessary Stop in Santa Monica
An obligatory place to eat while you're visiting any major city in the USA, although don't let this restaurant's "Chain" status fool you. The food is consistently delicious, the service some of the friendliest I have ever experienced, and the atmosphere, while a little on the tacky side, will definitely make you smile. I have been to Bubba Gump twice in Santa Monica and once in Maui and I always order the same thing - Shrimper's Heaven - which is basically 4 different types of shrimp, french fries, and different dipping sauces. It is a giant deep fried mess and it is in no way good for you, but nobody can deny that it is simply delicious.
