Whether you are in Temecula for a vacation, visiting friends, or work, look no further than 1909, a unique restaurant and gastropub located in the heart of Old Town Temecula. As you drive through Old Town, one of the things that draws you to this restaurant is the large patio seating area that is always filled with people, tons of laughter and good times. After reading and hearing about all of the amazing reviews 1909 has from locals and out-of-towners, this restaurant is one to experience for yourself!
1909 is a tribute to the Machado building, the location where the restaurant and bar now lives. Well before the 1909 burger was created, the structure was home to a trading post, livery, auto shop and most notably a bar. During the 70’s, the Longbranch Saloon was known as the roughest place in town to get a drink. Locals often stop in and tell stories of brawls and shootings. In fact, several bullet holes are still in the ceiling. It is no wonder that 1909 continues to draw the crowds.
With handcrafted scratch-made food and cocktails, 1909 delivers a unique experience for everyone! The Cedar Smoked Old Fashioned is a crowd favorite and a show in itself. Don’t want to order off of the cocktail menu? Their mixologists can create one-of-a-kind cocktails based off of your palette. It is truly an amazing experience. Pair that with craft food dishes and you are set!
Adding to the many offerings that 1909 has is the brunch menu offered 7 days a week, complete with bottomless mimosas and a tableside bloodymary cart. For those who want to try something more unique, order the Carnivore bloodymary complete with chicken wings, bacon and a meat straw. Yes, a meat straw!
Dine with your kids during the day, or come in for a fun evening and late night menu offerings. And if you happen to have your four-legged children with you, 1909 even has a dog menu that dogs can enjoy.
