For those looking for sushi, the place best I have ever been to out of ANY city is Matsu Sushi on Contra Costa Blvd. Good prices, great food.
Looking more for a more broad menu with plenty of TVs playing sports? I recommend Jack's in Downtown Pleasant Hill. Took over the previous location of Left Bank that everyone else seems to be talking about. I personally like Jack's better, but hard to compare.
I think one of the best kept secrets of Pleasant Hill is Escape from Fisherman's Wharf also located on Contra Costa Blvd. Family owned for as long as I can remember, they offer anything that you would want from Fisherman's Wharf in SF without the commute! Their sandwiches and salads are some of the best I've had. There is nothing bad on the menu. Cash only though!
I also recommend Daimo Sushi (in the Country Square Plaza) for Sushi. Good portions, reasonable price, great service.
Few others I like are located in Concord, but a quick ride from Pleasant Hill.
