My first suggestion is always Subway.
Great Price, Great Taste, and well above average Healthiness from what else is available.

Per usual I also suggest taking Vitamins to con.

if your looking for "fast food" there are several places nearby:
McDonalds, Jack in the Box, Pizza my heart, Ben & Jerry's,  Johnny Rockets Etc etc.

There are restaurants all over the place like:
Original Joes, Iguanas, Sonoma Chicken Coop

Even Vegan/Vegetarian options:
Vegetarian House, Good Karma

and there's a new Safeway (grocery store) in downtown now as well.
even our Fanime Guide will show some local eatery's in the local area.

If your looking for cheap fast food you have McDonald and SUbway close. If your looking to really save a buck and you have a refrigerator in your room there is a Safeway close by you can get thinks like bread, lunch meat, cheese, cereal milk, and the like at. only warning on safeway they can be little on the expensive side for soft-drinks but still way cheaper then fountain drinks at a fast food store or the $3-$4 drinks at the convention center.

In you guys opinions, what do you think is better,

La Vics or Iguanas?

IMO both are pretty good, but the orange Sauce sets La Vics apart.

EDIT:
I'm hearing La Vics got closed. Any truth to this?

^ there's either Chinese Gourmet Express right next to Johnny Rockets, which is like a food court Chinese food place, E&O Trading Company, a pricey Asian fusion restaurant, or PF Chang's.

It's really hard to go wrong downtown it really depends on what you are in the mood for or your budget. Personally I love Iguana's burritos and quesadillas. Their fish burrito is a personal favorite of mine.

There was this pizza place around fanime, but I forgot what it was called. It's wasn't Pizza My Heart. It was yummy pizza with thick cheese and sausage in the center. Though the one place i always go to would have to be this very small bubble tea cafe down the street. It's hard to miss, because the business is basically set up in a two-story house. The Katsu Chicken bento they had was delicious and satisfying. Great prices too.

Oh yeah, thanks for that. It left a great impression on my friends and I. We're making it a tradition to order from House of Pizza on the third day of Fanime every year. XD

I don't know about the best, but me and my friends are going to try a BBQ/Steakhouse place we saw on Man Vs. Food. I forget the name, but its prob on their website somewhere, it looked good.

Last time I was their, I had sushi, but I don't exactly remember where, we walked north of the Fairmont and kind of found it.
