Cheesecakes Unlimited opened in downtown Redding in 1991 and was an instant success. In fact, their loyal customer base kept growing so much they’ve had to move several times.
Though their cheesecake really is fabulous, Cheesecakes is perhaps best known for their amazing salads, something Best Of voters knows as top-notch.
With locally sourced vegetables and dressings made from scratch, it’s hard to miss with any of the salads. There are 11 on the menu, so choosing can be a challenge. The choices include tasty options like the Glazed Walnut Chicken with orange champagne vinaigrette and the Shrimp Pine nut with a garlic basil vinaigrette topped with blue cheese.
Cheesecakes Unlimited’s home in the old Pine Street School is as fun and fresh as its many delicious salads.
Billy Joel famously sang “A bottle of red, a bottle of white, It all depends upon your appetite.”

And they offer bottles for purchase in addition to their tasting rooms that are perfect for a fun night out with friends.
And if “In Vino Veritas” holds firm, then the truth is that Moseley’s is your North State vintner extraordinaire.
Whether you need to stoke those romantic reservations, keep them burning hot or are just looking to impress that special someone, Clearie’s is the clear choice for Best Of Voters.
But why? After all, there are plenty of nice restaurants in the North State. The answer lies in the details. Everything is scrutinized the menu, the staff, the décor, the ambiance– so that your night out can be focused solely on the two of you.
In addition to quality service, the food is top-notch and varied with something for everyone’s palate. Then there are the little things which subtly add to the ambiance and experience. Things like clean restrooms, full salt and pepper shakers, cloth on the tables and bussers who discretely whisk away dirty dishes, so you can relax and enjoy the company.
Tough day at work? Great day at work? Just want to have a beer with friends? Well, Woody’s is the place in all three cases. Let’s face it, bars are supposed to be fun and Woody’s fits that bill. A fun, casual atmosphere with a great bar to belly up to is only part of the lure.
The food menu is to die for – the Cobb salad is sinfully good – and the rotating menu of beers makes each time you head to Woody’s a chance to try something new … and celebrate just about anything.
The best part about Woody’s – other than everything – is that a rotating beer list means you can find something that fits perfectly. Or you can keep trying the awesome variety of suds ordered by the locally-owned brewery that’s a habitual Best Of winner.
From Shasta Haze (an IPA with hints of pineapple, guava, and another citrus) to Pray for Powder Porter (a smooth balance of rich, dark malts with a hint of bitterness) to the famous … infamous … Hopzerker, Woody’s has whatever you’re thirsting for.
