Brewery | Tustin, North Orange County

This place has the best late night happy hour prices and the food quality is amazing. Had the sliders, pizza and chicken lettuce wraps and all three are the same size as regular prices and delicious. Sliders are better than Cheesecake Factory and those used to be our favorite! Lettuce wraps are better than Cpk and they are super filling. The pizza has a really flavorful crust that leaves you wanting more. Delicious, affordable and great service. We will be back!! More

Seafood | Newport Beach, South Orange County

Great food and service inside. However, the valet was rude and unprofessional. He gave my husband his keys to get his own car and did not open the door for the passengers on of which was 94 years old. Copper was tipped but he shouldn’t have been. He was not an asset to Roy’s tonight and I’m very disappointed. More

Sol Agave - Mission ViejoSol Agave - Mission Viejo
$$$$
Mexican | Mission Viejo / Rancho Santa Margarita, South Orange County

Long before what has become the "best mexican restaurant in SJC" our dream began in 2015 inside a 17ft. food truck with a burning desire of changing the way guest perceived food truck food to be..

Chef Manny and I have always believed that mexican food doesn't have to be greasy and fatty or simply tacos and burritos so we head out in our journey that has now become our destiny...

after three short years we look back and are amazed on how far we have travelled in such a short period..

when they ask us what is the secret.. our response is always the same. GOD has truly blessed us! we wouldn't be here with out his guidance and our friends and families prayers.. More

Discover Orange County

Located in the sunny state of California, Orange County is known for its many tourist attractions. Considering that Orange County consists of 34 cities and is more populous than 21 U.S. states, you can bet the attractions include not only the best surfing beaches, the Balboa ferry, and sites like Knott’s Berry Farm and Disneyland but also a huge selection of restaurants. The warm climate enhances the growth of fresh, organic vegetables and fruits, which can be found in many restaurants. Although iconic California foods like Rocky Road ice cream and sourdough bread may have originated in other CA cities, they’re also popular in Orange County. Fast food places, drive-ins, and Korean barbecues are popular in this area, too. Smoothies in the summer, however, take the cake.
