Gypsy Den: Our New Favorite?

We like to go out in the evenings.  To be more precise, we like to go to nice bar/restaurants in our area that have outdoor seating so that we can sit and watch the sunset while sipping wine or martinis, and then have dinner.  Sometimes we like more of the former, as opposed to the…

Genki Sushi in MainPlace Mall – Review

Conveyor belt Sushi – what’s not to love?! Located at MainPlace mall, 2800 Main Street, Santa Ana, CA 92705, it is convenient to much of Orange County. Parking is limited, so get there early for lunch. Opens at 11:30 a.m. and closes at 10:00 p.m. We’ve been eating at this quaint little Sushi restaurant for…

Cafe China Super Buffet

China Cafe is a nice, middle-of-the-road buffet restaurant with a fair selection of foods. Located at 17631 17th St, Tustin, it is easy enough to get to and is located close to the corner of 17th and Tustin Avenue.  They mostly use decent ingredients, with an exception. We have been here quite a few times when…

Proof Bar in Santa Ana

Went there early (8:00) on Friday night. The bar was almost empty, so we thought that since the bartender was not busy, we would be waited on fairly quickly. We sat there for about five minutes before I had to ask her to take our drink order. I asked her about the Scotches they serve,…

Red Lobster Restaurant

It  had been years since I had eaten at a Red Lobster, so when we were looking for someplace to eat lunch and passed one, I really wanted to give it a try. I remembered how great the rolls were, and the rest of their menu was also great. The place was still great, but…

The Habit Burger Grill

Nice people working there.  REALLY small place – not much in the way of seating.  Clean, but… Burgers were a bit bland and small.  For the price, I would have MUCH rather gone to In-N-Out.  Best part were the fries, but that wasn’t enough to make me want to return.  Even if I were really…

Hector’s on Broadway in Santa Ana

I wanted to really like this place, I did. The decor is nice, the waitstaff seemed nice. The salsa and Margaritas were great. The problem is probably time we got there. We went here around seven on a weekday evening. Our plan was to have Margaritas as a celebration to having a successful day. We…

La Rinconada Restaurant in Santa Ana

Understand that this review is based only on the beef nachos. The service and the staff are wonderful, and we hope that when we go back and try other dishes, we will find out this restaurant is as wonderful as we suspect it is. That said, the beef nachos were nothing to write home about.…

Restaurante Las Cazuelas Review

Unassuming and a bit hidden from the main streets of Santa Ana, this quaint little mom and pop restaurant is a gem that should be tried. From the outside picture you can see that Restaurante Las Cazuelas is located at the corner of the building at 312 N Bush St, Santa Ana, CA 92701. Be aware…
