Clockers' Corner at the Santa Anita Racetrack is one of my favorite restaurants in the San Gabriel Valley. I like it so much I shouldn't even tell you about it. In fact, nevermind. It's awful. The setting is a dirty old racetrack with these big, green, lumpy mountains in the background. Plus palm trees! I mean, palm trees are not indigenous to southern California! And the food--well, the food might be tasty and fresh, but they don't charge much for it! What kind of place is that? And what kind of place makes you sit outside in the sunshine and watch magnificent horses work out while you relax and eat?
I'm telling you, don't go. They're only open from 7am-10am so forget it. It's too much trouble.
