Fresh cooked food even the vegetables. Great fried fish dinner and good fresh salad bar. Good double fisted chicken burrito and always fresh made salsa. Reasonable prices too. Order at counter and delivered to your table by friendly servers. Been here many times for all meals during the day and all have been good.

My wife and I lived near John's Place 12 years ago and then moved out of the area. So when we were visiting Brea recently and we needed a place for a good, quick lunch, I thought about John's, not knowing if it was still as good as it used to be, or even if it was open. We drove... More

I found this restaurant to be very neat and clean. The service was excellent. I selected a ham and egg breakfast which was very good. More than I could finish. The coffee was good and the server kept the cup from running dry.

Their breakfast burrito was very good. All it needed was a nice side of chunky salsa. Instead, all I say available was the normal bottled hot sauces.

The bacon cheeseburger was good, although the meat was a little too pink in the middle for my preference. The fries could have spent another minute in the fryer, they were underdone. Service was fast, and the menu had lots of options.
