The Mexican

Willowick Golf Course is a diner in Santa Ana. It’s Norms for duffers: pancakes, omelets, breakfast sandwiches, even a great breakfast burrito. A whiteboard offers the daily specials—sometimes, it might be Spam and eggs your way; other days, it’s a “pancake sandwich,” which is really nothing more than two pancakes over eggs and your choice of meat, with crunchy hash browns on the side. Lunch brings salads, fat sandwiches and one of the better tri-tips around. The burger is probably the best thing here, a steamed ham of glory.
