Papa Z's - Things to Do in Orange County 41

Papa Z's

This is one of my favorite restaurant/diner around town! If you're looking for an old fashioned local American Diner, look no further.

At Papa Z's you can find everything from great diner food to classic burgers at great prices with some of the most friendly staffs serving it to you. The diner is only open for breakfast and lunch - from 7AM to 3PM - but it sure is a joint that locals love!

The prices here are very cheap for all the food that they'll feed you with. Papa Z's will load your burger with a ton of fries, onion rings, or fried zucchinis, with plenty of ranch dressing to enjoy it all. Awesome!

I usually go with the Bacon Cheeseburger combo or the Avocado Bacon Cheeseburger when I get here. I like to get it "to go" so that I can go home, crack open a bottle of beer, and enjoy a great meal at home. They also have Today's Special that run from $5-$7 a meal.

Like any diner joint, once you order, they'll give you a number plate that you bring over to your table. You can then chat around with your buddies or other fellow diners at this always busy joint. Since they do cook everything fresh, it may take a little bit more than fast food, but it sure is worth the wait!

When my food came, the Bacon Cheeseburger came nice and juicy with plenty of lettuce, tomato, and onions. And my onion rings were nice and crispy. Perfect! The fried zucchinis here are also one of my favorites around town. They'll give you a ranch dressing to go with it, and you can enjoy a nice hot batch of them once it comes to your table.

I've never personally had breakfast here, but its always packed with locals enjoying their meals. Weekends are especially packed with people here for breakfast.

If you do decide to come here on a weekend, you can roll on down to the Huntington Beach Pier to enjoy some sun after a nice old fashioned diner food. Can't miss this awesome diner! Hope you can check it out soon too!

Me too! It's either Papa Z's or George's Burger on Euclid/Talbert, when it comes to favorite burgers in Orange County. I wish Papa Z's would be open for dinner too.
