RODEO
California, U.S.A.
A CATTLE TOWN
Welcome to Rodeo, California. This is a census-designated place in Contra Costa County, with a population of around 11,000 people. The non-incorporated town is situated on the vast shore of San Pablo Bay, and is named for the livestock rodeos that were common in the late 19th century. Between 1865 and 1867, brothers John and Patrick Tormey bough the land from the Ygnacio Martinez Rancho El Pinole estate, and subsequently became prominent ranchers and businessmen. Originally the idea was to turn Rodeo into a large meatpacking and canning center, but eventually the brothers began to build streets and homesteads; thus beginning what was to become the town of Rodeo. Today, Rodeo still has much left of its small-town and historic atmosphere, and residents proudly protect both their heritage and future. Rodeo boasts a total of fourteen service clubs and recreational groups, in addition to a homeowners association and several advisory committees. This waterfront community has plenty of local food spots, like D’s Giant Burgers, where Charan and Tony Dhillon have been serving the residents for over 27 years. Sit here and listen to the jukebox while looking at the movie star photos and enjoying traditional, home cooked meals with old-time regulars. The El Sol Restaurant has been open since 1982 and is a fine establishment serving where you can devour authentic Mexican dishes in a homely setting. The owners of the deli welcome guests like family, while continually striving for perfection. As far as schools, Rodeo has a number of terrific educational institutions, such as Rodeo Hills Elementary, Carquinez Middle School and John Swett High Scholl; the latter being a designated California Distinguished School.
