Best Argentine Restaurant Orange County 2013 - Regina Restaurant
11025 Westminster Ave.
Garden Grove, CA 92843
Fans of this longtime standard, regionally famous for showing nearly every possible soccer match involving any team with even one Argentinean on its squad, feared the restaurant might close after the sudden death of its beloved owner, Elías Niquias, and subsequent purchase by a Peruvian family in 2011. But the owners understood what made Regina so popular in the first place: the extensive beer and wine list, the hospitality, the gargantuan trays of meat, the scintillating chimichurri—and, of course, the soccer. Sure, they now show Peruvian fútbol as well, but you can't fault them for that!
