This message is admittedly plagiarized almost word for word from a message for someone who lives in L.A. We live in Irvine, and the same message applies to us.
We eat out frequently and have yet to find many restaurants that fit the need for a tasty, all around menu that is reasonably priced. We are not looking for ethnic here - nor are we looking for a diner or coffee shop. Maybe a place with fresh, delicious food and a varied menu that is consistently good and has entrees under $20. We live in Irvine, but Costa Mesa, Newport, Laguna, Lake Forest, or nearby Santa Ana would all be fine. Any and all suggestions welcomes!
