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.
