Sarducci's Capistrano Depot: At The Depot
Sarducci's was the first restaurant I saw getting off the train. Now this is the place I'd choose for the evening meal. It was lovely and the fountain in the patio gave it the feel of a desert oasis that would be a wonderful bonus on a hot summer evening. They offer a Mystery Dinner Theater, "Murder by the Mission" and I'd like to check that out too.
However, my darliing grand daughter chose another place so I didn't have the opportunity of checking this one out. I'm mentioning it here to give you the chance I didn't have of knowing about it ahead of arriving.
Favorite Dish: Can't suggest a dish at the moment, but when I have the chance to eat here, I'll let you know what I think.
If you have eaten here feel free to let me know what you think of the food and service.

Sarducci's Capistrano Depot: Historic Train Depot Is Now A Restaurant
On a lovely spring day in San Juan Capistrano we sat outside on the patio of this converted train depot. Some of the trees on the property are over 100 years old.
Sarducci's has left some of the "flavor" of the train depot incorporating it into their decor. On the walls throughout the restaurant are works of arts made by local artisans.
Sarducci's is right next to the train tracks and is convenient for a quick bite prior to catching a train.
Favorite Dish: I had the chicken fingers which were generous portions of chicken breasts with horseradish and marinara for dipping. The peach ice tea has a very nice flavor.
The Greek Gyros was also tasty but unfortunately I could not eat the pasta salad as it was ladened with mushrooms and I am allergic to mushrooms. Too bad because it looked good.

Sarducci's Capistrano Depot: All aboard for lunch!
Sarducci's is an old train depot that has been converted into a restaurant. The inside still has rooms that were part of the train station. You can eat in the ticket room if you wish! We ate outside on the courtyard patio near the fountain. There were birds taking a bath in the fountain while we were there eating and most of the diners enjoyed the splashes they received from their feathered friends.
Favorite Dish: Their french fries are great! We split a sandwich because it was so generous. We thought the meal there was excellent. Our servers were friendly and we discovered that one of the servers had lived in our hometown for a while when he was young.
It also seemed like a good "people watching" place.
