]My favorite place for dinner in Salida, the Fritz occupies a pleasant historic room with a bar, original art, and an even better dog-friendly, heated patio. The ever-changing menu includes creative sandwiches like chicken and brie and prosciutto and pear; small plates such as scrumptious bacon-wrapped dates and provolone-parmesan mac and cheese with bacon; and pasta and chicken entrees. The Steak Fritz is a specialty, with grilled onions, fries, and hollandaise. The full-service bar serves a number of local beers as well as tall-boy PBRs.
