"Solid Though Predictable Chain Store Strip"

Fitzgerald Drive in Pinole has all of the chain restaurants and stores you could want outside of an actual mall (for that you have to cross over the freeway to the nearby Hilltop Mall). You won’t find Sears here, but you will find Best Buy, PetFood Express, Michaels and a good place to buy Bridal Dresses. You will also find an assortment of chain restaurants like Taco Bell, Burger King and a Panda Express.

The highlight for me is the In-N-Out Burger. Its location just off I-80 makes it a great stop if you are coming back into town from the Sacramento Area—it’s a good place to get a bite to eat and gas and keep on going. There is also a Motel 6, so it’s a cheap place to stay if you are visiting Alameda county and want to avoid staying in an urban area. Pinole, overall, is a solid working class neighborhood that is a lot like the shopping area on this street, its okay, but doesn’t really offer any terribly interesting surprises.
