When you are in Los Alamitos, make sure and stop by the Starting Gate. I have always received fast service, the food is great, they have cheap drinks, and it's fun inside. And for those of us who enjoy cute bartenders, Emily rocks!!!

My West Coast Swing dance club meets here once a month, as well as on New Year's Day, and we are always treated well and offered decent food and cocktails for reasonable prices. Management is attentive to our needs (DJ music and dance floor) and the wait staff is friendly offering great service to our large group.

Lively karaoke and good live music on a Saturday night, even if they didn't let me and my buddy in after midnight. We didn't really have any business being in there by that time. Nice bouncer.
