Earlier today I read a Bay Area thread where everyone posted their top 5 favorite inexpensive restaurants in the South East Bay Area (http://www.chowhound.com/topics/401590) and thought it would be cool to do the same thing down here.
What are your top 5 favorite inexpensive restaurants in the Huntington Beach/Costa Mesa/Fountain Valley/Westiminster... area of Orange County? Things like hole in the wall authentic restaurants or places that have amazing deals at certain times of the day would be great for this list. One of my favorites is the Omelet House on 19th St in Costa Mesa which has 2 for 1 omelets before 8am on a weekday. Another is Taco Mesa (also on 19th St in Costa Mesa).
I cant wait to see what everyone's favorites are and give them a try. (Oh and if the restaurant is amazing and happens to be really inexpensive, maybe under $5, mention that on the side)
