I work near the 55 Freeway and the 5. I have been recruited to bring tamales to a lunch at my parents house this Weds in East Orange. Any suggestions would be really appreciated. I am sure there are so many great Mexican places in Santa Ana or Orange that I haven't tried. I must pass by ten hole in the wall joints just driving down East Chapman.
I usually get my Mexican fix in West Costa Mesa.
I have been to El Gallo Grillo and I do like it but feel the meat or masa ratio is less than desirable.
