NEIGHBORHOOD EATERY

November 22, 1990|LANA HAYS

MORE EATERIES:

Tartuffles, 2145 W. Chapman Ave., Orange. Open daily, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. (714) 541-0053. Two words: cinnamon rolls. Hot out of the oven and smothered in butter. Plus full breakfast plates, an outdoor patio and great service. Need we say more?

Casa Franco, 24395 Alicia Parkway, Mission Viejo. Open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. (Note: sometimes closes between 2:30 and 4:30 p.m.). (714) 380-9693. A little family-owned Mexican restaurant where even the owners wait tables. Try the Nachos a la Franco, carne asada and chimiflautas, then, if you still have room, go for a slice of mud pie.

Zubie's Pizza, 1714 Placentia Ave., Costa Mesa. Open 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and Sunday 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. (No phone.) The pizzas here come in one size only -- large -- and one price only -- $6.50 plus tax. That's whether you order plain, the works or any range of toppings in between. Expect picnic tables, a varied crowd and lots of noise, but you want decorum or you want good cheap pizza?
