Little Onion Mexican

110 W. MacArthur Blvd. Santa Ana, CA 92707 | Santa Ana | 714-979-1144

Location Description:

It's a claustrophobic space with vaulted ceilings, like a broom closet attached to an open attic. Faded tintype photos hang on stuccoed walls, and a heat lamp warms baskets of freshly fried chips. The food, despite its name, is of the Mexican-American variety: sloppy, greasy, brilliant.
