Irvine favorites still going strong 2+ decades later
« on: August 04, 2022, 04:34:40 PM »
It's not just Greek but also middle eastern food - with Cafe Matinee in LF now closed this is the best in the area. Used to go here for lunch in the 90s all the time.

I was goign to mention Las Fajitas near Woodbridge HS but looks like it closed down...terrible shame

I’ll have to check that place out!
Le Diplomat and Ray’s Pizza are still doing great.

Northwood Pizza!!

Lamppost Pizza!!

Olive Garden? Mimi’s? Trying to think of a non-chain. How long has Hen House been around?

Taiko used to be good. Quality has gone down badly last 10 years. No more lunch line like before.

Dont forget A&J next door. It’s been there as long as Taiko.
