    Slater’s 50/50

    I love a good burger. It’s probably the only thing I ever crave. So when I discovered Slater’s 50/50 – I fell in love. Slater’s 50/50 Like other burger joints out there, they offer custom burgers. But to be honest, their “burgers designed” are so delicious, I’ve never felt the need to create my own.

  • Avila’s El Ranchito Mexican Restaurant

    I’ve already posted about my love for Avila’s El Ranchito Mexican Restaurant. Everything we order is delicious, & you have to be careful – their warm tortilla chips & salsa can definitely fill you up. On a recent trip we discovered their “appetizer special”… a combination of “bite sized, tacos, taquitos & chingolingas“. Yum! Yum! [...]

  • Pat & Oscar’s

    If you’ve never been to Pat & Oscar’s, it is definitely a “family place”. The menu has everything from pizza & pasta, to salad, chicken, ribs, & my personal favorite part of the meal… bread sticks. They even have complete “meals” available for one, two or four. The food is pretty tasty (especially those bread [...]

  • Rainforest Cafe

    Rainforest Cafe is one of those places that I’m always forgetting about. We’ve probably been there a dozen times, & every time I go I think to myself, “I’ve really got to remember this place.” It’s not that the food is excellent (although it’s really not that bad, and their menu is HUGE, so there [...]

     
     
  • The Beach Pit BBQ

    One of our favorite new-to-me restaurants is The Beach Pit BBQ. As their web-site describes it they are “Southern Smoke, California Style”. It’s a half-service restaurant, which I always love, because you can get good, restaurant quality food, with fast-food convenience. They have 2 & 1/2 locations to serve you (Costa Mesa, Tustin Garage & [...]
