Mike Original (Building 1919): "Awesome food and decor!" Santa Ana Restaurant Tip by Yaqui

Santa Ana Restaurants: 7 reviews and 11 photos

This is a really nice restaurant. The outside patio and the antique cars caught my hubby’s eye. He said lets eat here and I am always up for adventures. As you enter, you will enter an area that looks like a ballroom with a very unique bar. Lots’ to look at and see here, so you have to walk around and look at the antique cars in front and the wall size murals in the ballrooms. The young hostess said the building use to be a car dealership and was built around 1919. That would explain the garage door on the side of the street and just the sheer size of the place. The exposed the original brick on many of walls, so that is really neat. Lots of old charm here and the food and service is excellent here too. As I mentioned before the patio is very inviting with lots of seating too. TVs’ everywhere so you don’t miss a game that is going on. We really enjoyed our time here, so it might be worth checking out this place the next time your in Santa Ana. Almost forgot, they have bands here regularly, so you may want to call in advance to know who is playing.
