We all know that when it comes to late night dining, it’s a huge challenge.
But with more options available, it doesn’t hurt to make some adjustments on your menu.
Here are some of the best tips to help you eat a little better on the road.
Buy more local produce and meats This season, the big brands like Red Lobster, Olive Garden, and Chili’s are all having an expanded menu this year.
But what you can really do is try and buy local.
Here’s how to make sure you’re getting the best value for your money.
You can pick up some of these locally grown items from places like Costco, Whole Foods, and other local grocery stores.
If you’re looking for meat, try and find a local butcher who cuts their meat locally.
Shop more locally You can also shop locally by looking for local brands.
Many of the items on the big chains like Walmart, Target, and Costco are made in the U.S. You’ll also find a lot of great local foods at small local shops like farmers markets and farmers markets.
If your grocery store is close to home, then you’ll have plenty of local options.
Try out new local dishes If you can’t find anything local, there are some great options you can try.
Here’re a few that I’m sure you’ll love: Black Angus steak with roasted garlic and blue cheese sauce at L.A.’s Black Angus Steakhouse.

This one is a great deal if you’re on a budget.
Try more local drinks At home, this means having more of a local take on a drink.
Some of my favorites include: Pisco-infused soda at The Old Mill in Pasadena.

Mint at La Luna.
