I love this place. Nestled inside Embassy Suites, this is a great place to have a secluded, romantic dinner or to unwind with a drink from the bar. Locals and a lively lounge singer add to the character of this restaurant. Food is good and reasonably priced - most plates are under $10. Parking is ample, but you may have to walk a bit if hotel occupancy is high.
Menu features a large array of breakfast, lunch and dinner items. Most plates are under $10. Parking is ample, but can be tricky when the hotel next door is at full capacity, since the parking lot is shared.
Building is amazing, glad to have this business in town. Great entertainment schedule featuring a mix of live bands, old school artists and djs. Good food, but not too much variety. Prices are generally under $15 a plate. Down sides: crowd can be sketchy some nights and pay attention to parking signs! My cousin's car was towed when he parked at the shopping center across the street.
This place has great tasting food at reasonable prices. I usually order the chicken teriyaki bowl and fries. The chicken is cut into smooth, bite-sized portions. No chewy or undercooked pieces here. Combos come in at under $6. Parking is limited. The tiny dining room can get overcrowded during lunch time, when students and staff from nearby Santa Ana College stop in.
I was really eager to eat here, since I've seen it a million times but I'd never stopped. I ordered a chicken dish, which was okay, but not great. Price was too high for quality of food. Staff was sort of rude. Decor was awesome, felt like I was in LA or NYC.
Dragon Bowl gives good, greasy Chinese food at a reasonable price. A three-item combo comes in at under $5. I usually order the orange chicken, which is heaped into a styrofoam container in large quantities. The dining room leaves something to be desired, but there is a drive thru, which is convenient for quick trips.
Eating at El Curtido was a new experience for me, as I'd never eaten El Salvadorean cuisine before. I had the pupusas and rice, which were filling. The pricing was good - most plates were under $10. The dining room can get crowded during lunch and dinner with locals and employees from nearby county buildings. Finding parking was tough - I had to park blocks away and walk in.
I've been eating at Duke's for as long as I can remember. The burgers are good sized and well priced. Combos - featuring a burger, fries and a drink - come in under $6. They also have a variety of sandwiches, Mexican dishes and breakfast foods. Their fried zucchini is plentiful. Parking is ample. The only draw back? The strip club next door is visible from every angle of the eatery. Although that may be a plus, if you're into that sort of thing.
The menu has something for everyone, ranging from traditional breakfast items like waffles and pancakes, to hearty dinners, like meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Prices are reasonable, with most meals costing under $10. This particular location has ample parking and a good sized dining room. However, the parking lot can get crowded when traffic jams at the In N Out next door.
I'm always looking for new restaurants to try, so when I heard that there was a new, high-end establishment in town, I jumped at the chance to eat there. When we arrived, I noticed that parking was scarce. Me and my husband ended up parking at a pay-lot next door. As we approached the door, an employee in a tuxedo opened it for us and directed us into the elevator and upstairs. When we walked into the restaurant, I found it hard to believe that I was in downtown Santa Ana. The ambiance was great - dim lighting and a live jazz band created a laid-back, but classy environment.The food was awesome - I had a tomatoe salad and stuffed chicken. The bill topped $100, but it was well worth it.
