Husky Boy in Laguna Beach is a classic roadside burger stand, and probably the most scenic in Orange County: right off of PCH. Husky Boy's menu is a time capsule from the 1960s corrupted by Mexicans. Breakfast brings out the eggs—with ham, sausage or bacon; in gooey omelets; scrambled inside a steaming breakfast burrito; seeped into the French toast. There are decent versions of such Mexican fast-food staples as burritos, quesadillas and expensive-but-big carne asada tacos. And, in a nod toward the holistic Laguna Beach that is disappearing with every new mansion, Husky Boy also offers buffalo and ostrich burgers; both of the meats are light and (truthfully) a bit funky. Better go to this place while you can, though: Husky Boy is always in danger of closing because the nouveau riche that now live in Laguna Beach frequently complain about the sweet smoke that comes out of the restaurant daily—no joke!
