    I should hit it up next time I visit. Hawaii had one when I was growing up, it was good but I got sick from it once.

    Farrell's was a great place as a kid, I just heard they opened up one in Hawaii again.

    I really wanted a carne asada burrito from Carmels today.
    Used to be on the corner of El Toro and Rockfield in Lake Forest.
    It was replaced by a Chronic Tacos...what a shame.


    I hear rumor that the employees opened a place called El Progresso in Lake Forest off Raymond and El Toro, and "copied" the Carmels menu. Haven't tried it yet! Anyone here know of it? I know there are quite a few of you LGK peoples in the Saddleback Valley area.

    At Carmels, my standard order was a carne asada burrito and 2 taquitos. The burritos were huge. Some people don't care for refried beans in their asada burritos, but the beans and the steak were so good together. I would have to compare the new place to that order to get a good idea if it's the same.

    I miss Papa's, from various locations in Long Beach, then Los Alamitos.

    Best tri-tip ever, slow roasted with absolutely no sauce. Homemade beer-based salsa, and a no frills down home attitude.

    That place had the worst luck ever - grew out of its first place, leased a new building with severe plumbing problems, moved into the kitchen of a bar near the race track in Los Alamitos while the new building was being built, then the entire strip mall of their new location burned down.

    Howard Johnsons in Buena Park. Would go there as a kid and they would have all you can eat fried clams on Friday night.
