We read about G Burger in OC Weekly, and were wowed by the photos on Yelp, so we decided it was worth the drive out to La Habra to give it a try. 

Everything is very fresh and cooked to order. The service we received was superb. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. The prices are very reasonable compared to other gourmet custom "build your own burger" places ( such as The Counter ). And they don't nickel and dime you for extra sauces and such.

We started off with an order of G Animal Style Fries ( French Fries with Bacon, Grilled Onions, Cheese and 1000 Island Dressing ) and an order of Fried Zucchini. We got two extra dipping sauces ( Blue Cheese and Ranch, I believe ). Both sides were delicious, and we had no trouble finishing everything.

Then came the Burgers. The ladies both ordered Bacon Cheeseburgers with Swiss Cheese, Mushrooms and Avocado. I had a Double Bacon Cheeseburger with Pepper Jack Cheese, Fried Egg, Mushrooms and Avocado. The burgers were delivered to our table, fresh, hot and delicious. We all feel that G Burger is "as advertised" on their website, and hope one will open up closer to home. In the meantime, it is worth the drive to La Habra.

Today's G Burger dinner gets three thumbs up from the 3 Tubby Tummys.

Manuel's Original El Tepeyac Cafe is a landmark in Los Angeles, known for their legendary burritos. Sweetie Pie was reminded of it when she saw a report on TV for Cinco de Mayo. So we decided to drive over to Boyle Heights to see for ourselves. We got there early for lunch, to avoid a wait, and were seated right away. The staff was friendly and the service very good.

I ordered the signature Manuel's Special Chile Verde Burrito. It was "as advertised"- huge beyond belief and very good, with lots of tender meat and a great sauce. I couldn't come close to finishing it. The ladies split the Steak Picado Burrito. With extra meat sauce, it looked as big as my order. Sweetie Pie asked for no beans, but got beans in the burrito anyway. Still, it was quite good, and I had burrito leftovers for two days.

We also ordered Guacamole, which was a little bland, but we kicked it up a notch with their great red salsa. Sweetie Pie ordered Taquitos, which were disappointing and dry. Her mother ordered a Red Chile Chicken Enchilada, which was fantastic, and a Carne Asada Taco, also delicious.

Today's El Tepeyac lunch gets two and a half thumbs up from the 3 Tubby Tummys.
