Top Five Beach-Blanket Bites

1. If you can refrain from eating them the second you get in the car, the trek to the beach is just about perfect to give the Corn Pups from The Doghouse a chance to cool. 730 Milpas St., 962-3808.

2. Class things up with a selection of meats, salads, breads, and cheeses from Metropulos and pretend you’re on the Mediterranean. 216 E. Yanonali St., 889-2300.

3. Almost better than the grilled chicken sandwich with red peppers and fresh basil is the fact that Panino is only three minutes from Butterfly Beach. 1024 Coast Village Rd., 565-0137.

4 . Super Cuca’s nachos, with steak or chicken, are perfect fuel for a long day at the beach, and the Styrofoam acts as a handy sand shield. 626 W. Micheltorena St., 962-4028.

5. Why mess with the classics? Nothing tops onion rings, a milkshake, and a cheeseburger from Hamburger Habit. 216 S. Milpas St., 962-7472.
