  • The Surfin' Cowboy

    The Surfin' Cowboy

    Surfin' Cowboy is a bar in Capistrano Beach. There's good tequila (though skip the ludicrously overpriced Casa Dragones at $50 a shot) and cocktails that were actually researched and don't rely on artificially flavored vodka. There's freshly... More on The Surfin' Cowboy »

  • Ostioneria Playas De Sinaloa

    Ostioneria Playas De Sinaloa

    Playas de Sinaloa is like most any other Sinaloa-style seafood restaurant-cheesy d├ęcor, light provided by neon beer signs, buxom waitresses in impossibly tight skirts and shirts that respectively rise too high and sink too low. But you're here... More on Ostioneria Playas De Sinaloa »

  • Zov's Cafe Bakery & Bar

    Zov's Cafe Bakery & Bar

    It may be in another one of those stultifyingly dull neighborhood centers, where everything looks like everything else, but leave it to James Beard Award-winner Zov Karamardian to shake up the Orwellian sameness with her brand of Middle... More on Zov's Cafe Bakery & Bar »

  • La Habra 300 Bowl

    La Habra 300 Bowl

    Owned by the Burch family of Burch Ford fame, La Habra 300 Bowl in La Habra is well-known for the rock-throwing athleticism of Glen Allison, who in 1981 bowled three consecutive 300 games. Tossing aesthetic grandeur to the wind, 300 Bowl is... More on La Habra 300 Bowl »

  • Commonwealth Lounge

    Commonwealth Lounge

    This downtown spot has successfully separated itself from the herd of local sud-slingers with unique aesthetic flourishes. Remarkably, the bar itself is table high, and patrons are seated in cushy, broad-backed chairs. The recessed liquor shelves... More on Commonwealth Lounge »

  • Bootleg Theater

    Bootleg Theater

    Based in a former 1930s warehouse, this brick-walled performance space hosts music, theater, dance and film events in a medium-size theater, which is adjoined by a more bare-bones bar, where indie-rock musicians are booked by the local promoters... More on Bootleg Theater »

  • Good Hurt

    Good Hurt

    In the past decade, Good Hurt has become West Los Angeles' longest-running live rock nightclub. Its fiery red interior creates an appropriately lurid mood for a wide range of music, from funk and indie rock to techno and reggae. The club's weekly... More on Good Hurt »

    Joe's Great American Bar & Grill

    Since it opened in 2005, Joe's really has been one of the San Fernando Valley's greatest bars, with live entertainment nightly and a large dance floor. The Burbank nightclub is renowned for booking top country-music performers, but rock, swing,... More on Joe's Great American Bar & Grill »

Food Trucks

  • Tacos El Chavito

    Tacos El Chavito

    Here is Orange County's best deal: two tasty tacos for a buck, with free, unlimited pineapple juice. Who cares that this taco truck is in the middle of Surf City's notorious Slater Slums-two tacos for a buck with free pineapple juice! More on Tacos El Chavito »

  • The Lime Truck

    The Lime Truck

    The Lime Truck's Daniel Shemtob and Jason Quinn know their repeat customers are not only open for something new, but they also expect it. Quinn is as apt to adopt a Filipino seasoning technique to make sugary-delicious tocino tacos one day as he... More on The Lime Truck »

  • Dogzilla Hot Dogs

    Dogzilla Hot Dogs

    Dogzilla is a food truck that sells hot dogs. The great thing about Dogzilla's Asian-inspired hot dog is that their structural integrity remain: the noodles stay in place, the wiener doesn't slip, the bun soaks up everything but doesn't turn into... More on Dogzilla Hot Dogs »

    McClain's Coffeehouse

    • Having twice the skill set in the back of the house means twice as much attention to detail. It also means double the personalities. Yet my time with Ben and Justin of Ways & Means taught me that collaboration and working towards a common goal (in this case, running an efficient kitchen) can only mean success. I interview them shortly before the afternoon management meeting, as they prepare for dinner service. Read our interview with Ben and Justin of Ways & Means, part one. And now, on to part two . . . Name one thing you like about... More on Ways & Means Oyster House »

    • Best friends. Significant others. Chefs de Cuisine. However you want to classify them, I've been interviewing pairs for On the Line as of late. I don't know if they're trending, but there's a positive energy that occurs when you have another person to collaborate with (Maybe it's because you share the stress?). Either way, our subjects for this week are creating a name for themselves at the edge of Old Town Orange. We bounce questions off both Benjamin Wallenbeck and Justin Odegard, the chefs de cuisine over at Ways & Means. How are... More on Ways & Means Oyster House »
