Best Location for a Fast-Food Restaurant - 2009
Flame Broiler at the Lakes
A waterfall is a waterfall, even if it's an artificial one. At the Lakes across from South Coast Plaza, it cascades, gurgles and soothes as it flows into a man-made lake shaded by transplanted trees. Above you, palm fronds rustle. A warm breeze kisses the water, which ripples from the touch. Enjoyed in this hidden suburban oasis, that ordinary fast-food lunch of a teriyaki bowl from Flame Broiler tastes extraordinary . . . and your lunch hour becomes your Zen hour.
