In N Out is Southern California at it's lowest price best. The burger is one to try or go back to if you haven't had in a while.

Best Mexican food around and especially in Orange County. Laguna is the luxury beach area. Lots of art galleries and stuff to see and do. But Las Brisas and their patio rivals no one. Margaritas awesome. Chips and guac super fresh.

If you are at South Coast Plaza and just want a meal and a glass of wine without checking how many stars they have, then this standard is not that bad. Many items on the menu are double ordered -- meaning you get on at the restaurant and a whole new one to take home! 2 for 1! Only in America!

Not the greatest Mexican in So Cal, but definitely the closest. Service can be lacking, but give it time. You'll get the margarita sooner or later. :) Nice folks run the place.

Our Pasadena stop for Mexican. Again, keep going south to Las Brisas or try something on the west side for upscale. But El Portal tries to make a good meal and margarita and they are consistent.

Probably the best mall in Southern California. Sure, there are outdoor venues like Americana and The Grove, but this mall is the old standard but kept up to 21st century standards. Luxury and basics all in one giant mall. Check out some of our dinner suggestions in Laguna and Newport to make this a nice day trip.
