my wife told me about a new bar in Santa Ana called Porky´s bar. It was 7:15 p.m. Friday , a good reason for a beer and a burger. The recommendation was correct they have a huge menu of burgers (hard to choose one) all the options looks delicious but I had to decide for a burger with jalapeño and... More

All in all it was a good dining experience. And, I would definitely return. We were promptly seated and our order taken. Our server was gracious and competent. The server spoke very good English. When I refer to slow service I am only referring to the time from order until the food arrived. The server service was excellent.Twenty-eight minutes later... More

You can have a couple of beverages and food for almost nothing while watching your favourite sports.

We were looking for a fun night with big burgers, and we were not disappointed! So many interesting choices and combinations! It's definitely a nice pub / bar atmosphere.

Been there twice, both times service has been terrible and tonight they did not have the beer I wanted, and after 15-20 minutes of ordering my food I was told they did not have my choice either.

It's a little place in Santa Ana. Nothing fancy, more like a pub. The burgers were excellent. We ordered a 1 pound jalapeño burger which was huge and a western burger. They were both delicious. The table in front of us ordered a 1 kilo burger and was humongous! But they shared it between 4 people. The service was good,... More

I am a local reg on this place, going to drink and eat there twice a week apprx. Yesterday I invited 3 friends to share what was until yesterday a great place to eat/drink/chat...

We stayed overnight in Santa Ana before a flight out of SJO on 7/23. We needed to get dinner for the four of us so we looked at the top rated restaurants on trip advisor and picked Porky's since burgers sounded good at the time and was only 2 km away. Not speaking much Spanish had not been a problem... More
