Review of Cook's Corner

Going to Cooks Corner is like taking a step back in time. They have preserved as much as possible of this once remotely located stop on the way to Coto and Rancho Santa Margarita. All you can eat spaghetti Wednesdays one of my favorite. Many bikers, both motor and pedal gather on the weekends and there is usually live music going. Bring your cowboy hat and boots. You can listen to old timers that hang out tell tales of years past.

It's what you can expect, a biker bar with the "bar" set really low--a smelly greasy spoon with awful American beer (sorry, I don't drink that watered-down stuff). The biker types are not your Westside lawyers, bankers, doctors, and dentists that descend on the Rock Store in Calabasas on Sundays. No, here you find people who look like gang bangers and wear scary insignia that proclaim their willingness to topple the government. It's the closest to a hick town crowd you can find in Orange County. I ride motorcycles and usually just pass by because it's not worth stopping there. I had breakfast there once and the eggs and the works gave me indigestion. I had to use the bathroom -- yuk!

This is one of those places that you have to put your OC ATTITUDE on the shelf and just let yourself go and enjoy the atmosphere. Everyone should experience this at least once.

First time I was at Cooks Corner was when I was very young. My dad flew fighters out of El Toro Marine base and this was one of the squadrons "un-official" hangouts.
Over the years, I stopped in and had a beer and lunch. Good food, totally relaxed atmosphere and you can sit in a outdoor park like setting.

To be clear, this is also a very popular biker bar, no not Hells Angels, but local bike clubs use this as a destination start or end to a run.

At night you can listen to live music and kick back with a drink to wind down.

Good place to spend times with friends, but not a place for the kiddies
