Stopped by for lunch and I had a Garden Ortega Burger (vegetarian) and my husband had the fish taco. Delicious food. Cheap! There is a happy hour from 2:00 to 7:00 everyday. The fish tacos are only a buck! We were so impressed, we took our daughter and her friend back for breakfast the next day. They have plates of two eggs, two bacon or sausage, potatoes and toast for $5. But I ordered the Whole in One (english muffin sandwich with egg, bacon, avocado and salso) $5. It was the perfect breakfast. Yum! When you get tired of shelling out the cash in high-priced Avalon and just want some great food, head back towards the golf course to The Sandtrap!! :)

Went to Catalina for our 26th Anniversary since my husband purposed to me on the island. Walked to Wrigleys Garden and on the way back saw the Sand Trap so stopped in for a bite. It was happy hour so we got the 1.00 Taco's and they were wonderful! It does seem to be more of a local hang out since it is so far off the beaten path and quite old but it was perfect to sit and have a wonderul marguerita and some tacos outside in a cute patio. The day we went there were a couple of base ball teams enjoying the time together so there was lots of life in that little patio. Can't wait to go again.

Generous Happy Hour (2-7pm daily) with $1 tacos & $2 beers (only Bud Light on draft). Way off the beaten path, suggested to us by the innkeeper at the B&B we were staying at. The tacos were great, the beers cheap, and great margarita's, too.

It's right by the golf course (hence the name of the place). Don't pi** off the local duffers, especially if they had a bad round of golf that day. LOL. Their mood changed when we told them we were on our honeymoon. :-)

My wife and I walked up to the Wrigley Memorial (OK but not really exciting) and on the way back stopped at the Sand Trap for their $1 Happy Hour tacos. Talk about a neat experience. It is part of the golf course and their Happy Hour and tacos are simply great. If a cruise ship is in port then you can take the bus/trolley up to the Sand Trap and forget the walk up and back. Have no idea what the rest of their food is like but there was a baby shower going on while we were there so it can't be too bad. Definittely do the behind tour at the Casino. It is simply great.
