Delicious pasties made quickly and for a good price. I also tasted both the cherry and apple dessert pasties. I would definitely go back for the lunch pasties but I didn't think there was anything special about the dessert ones.

Ive passed this place dozens of times and never thought to stop in,however, one day I was tired of burgers and tacos. I ordered one of each; beef, chicken, and veggie ... they were out of veggie. Of the two, I prefer the beef as it had a little more flavor. I did not order gravy on the side... probably... More

My SO's father is in after surgery rehab nearby and asked us to get him a pasty. I had not had one since travelling to the UP of MI years ago. The place is tiny and appears to be family run. The food was excellent and gave me the opportunity to bore my poor SO with tales of my travel... More

I was first introduced to this place back in 2000 . Since then it has been a great place to stop by for a quick bite . It minimal menu Beef,Chicken or Vegetable has made it and easy stop and go . If you decide to go ask for the gravy. Great customer service . Parking in the back !

I used to live on pasties when I was a construction worker in N. Wis/MN/MI, a long long time ago, they`re best fresh, but reheat easy and taste great. Beef, potatoes, turnips or rutabagas,and maybe carrots or onions, all wrapped and cooked inside a pastry shell, healthy too. This place has excellent pasties,

This place has been here as long as I remember and has always been super tasty. Fast service and always warm as they pull them out of the oven when you order.

My boyfriend's mom always makes a meat pie every time we visit her and this reminds me so much of it. These pasties are some good comfort food that are seasoned to perfection. I will definitely be back again. Also, it's very cheap. Average price for anything in their place is $2.60; you can't beat that!

The Pasty Kitchen is a fixture in Los Alamitos. There is a reason for that ... the meat pies they both make from scratch and sell here are the best in the west! Well worth the visit. You can even purchase a bag of frozen pies to take the yumminess home with you. Located next to a beautiful little church,... More

My family has ordered fresh pastys from this place for many years. The pastys are real good and filling. There is no seating, as the pastys are for take out only. You can order frozen pastys also.

If you like pasties and if you like English pasties, This is your place. They havechicken, beef, vegetable, peach, cherry, and apple pasties. All are delicious and if you order the large it is a big enough meal for a big man. The flavor is great and they're always hot. This is authentic and one-of-a-kind in orange county.
