Best Liquor Store - 2012
Old Towne Orange has gotten a little uppity in the past decade or so. Thankfully, Rod's Liquors is holding down the old-school fort, with its semi-circle driveway for convenient parking and a down-to-earth staff that puts up with all manner of bullshit, from drunken homeless people to drunken Chapman girls to hipster dicks who frequent the nearby pubs. With a nice selection of American brews and plenty of booze with contrived names, Rod's has also turned itself into a little mini-mart, so if you need nachos with your rubbers, it'll hook you up. A clean store with a cool exterior, Orange County natives and noobs need to hit Rod's at least once before they die.
