Taco Tuesday bargain in North OC
Actually, the best Taco Tuesday bargain is not a taco but a good ol' American burger! Where? At Bar Louie inside the Anaheim GardenWalk. For $1.00, you get a full-sized 1/2 pound burger on a fairly good crispy bun with shredded lettuce! What's the catch? Firstly, it begins at 7 PM and ends around 1:45 AM when they close the kitchen. Secondly, you have to buy a drink. You can buy a refilllable soft drink or lemonade for $2.49 or go for alcohol at their special prices. Thirdly, all of the toppings are extra. Dressings such as their excellent toasted onion ranch or blue cheese) run 25 cents each, cheeses are 50 cents and other toppings run 50 cents to $1.00 for stuff like guacamole. Still, if you don't go crazy, you can get two burgers, two toppings, and a drink for $5.50! The only other caveat is that on my first two trips there, the burgers were cooked medium well, thus somewhat dry and charred. The last time I went, I wrote Medium on the order menu, and although it clearly states "all burgers are cooked Medium Well", it seems that the chef didn't char my burger and it was cooked a perfect shade of medium, along with the attendant juiciness! Next Tuesday, I'll list some taco bargains on Taco Tuesday!
