Memphis At The Santora - Closed

201 N. Broadway Santa Ana, CA 92701 | Santa Ana | 714-564-1064

Location Description:

If you've ever been to the South, then you know what a po'boy is. Take a bite of this catfish po'boy sandwich, lean back in your patio chair, and close your eyes. You'll swear it isn't traffic along busy Broadway you're hearing, but rather a lazy river.
