Orchard's Fresh Foods

Okay, not technically Orange County, but with a deal like this it's too good to pass up.

Orchard's Fresh Foods is an odd combination of higher end mom and pop grocery store, specializing in Boar's Head meat, along with some of the best cuts of meats available. The other part of Orchard's Fresh Foods in a nursery.

On Tuesday's they have all you can eat barbecue for $6.99. The pulled pork is tender, juicy and full of flavor. The chopped beef is also very tender. Both have enough fat to give it some added extra flavor. Their barbecue sauce is nice and spicy with just a hint of sweetness.

The only drawback is that they start serving the barbecue at 11:00 AM and keep serving it until it runs out. The ribs are obviously the first thing to go, and by the time I got there, they had run out. To get the best of everything, you need to hit this place up at lunch time.

They also have a wide variety of sodas from small manufacturers. I hear they also make their own root beer, but I didn't get a chance to try it.

Call ahead, as the specials seem to come and go rather quickly. A few weeks ago, they had the all you could eat barbecue Tuesday through Thursday.

I would have to say that this place is the best kept secret in so. california. By far the best meats around. They have real prime beef way cheaper than a Bristol Farms or Gelsons and it's all natural.The Boars Head deli selection is huge.The classic soda selection is unreal and the BBQ is excellent, especially the home made sauce. I agree that the BBQ ribs go fast. I mentioned this and was told the supply would increase as demand continues to grow and also another smoker is on the way.

A GREAT PLACE 1 BLOCK FROM O.C. BORDER. MEATS ARE THE BEST.A REAL BUTCHER SHOP WITH REAL BUTCHERS. STAFF IS INCREDIBLY FRIENDLY AND HELPFULL. I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THE PREVIOUS COMMENTS.

I have to agree, this is a wonderful little 'secret' place to shop and eat. The meat is so good, the staff is helpful and very pleasant. I am so glad I "discovered" Orchard's!

Hubby and I just got back from dinner there and I had the best cheese burger I have had in a while. It cost $4.25 - un-real. the Tuesday BBQ is $12.00 now, but still one of the best values for your dollar in these recessionary times.

they have limited fresh produce and do not sell dairy products any longer (hey, it's a meat market). They have a great sellection of classic soda and an expanded classic candy selection. The bottled soda is made with REAL SUGAR!

This is a great place to patronize.
