The Chili Pepper in Orange is a Mexican restaurant probably most famous for its colorful exterior and a parking lot where ceramic cacti pop out of nowhereâ€”thatâ€™s why itâ€™s always packed. Inside, itâ€™s the same party with parrots, palm trees, and more ceramic pots than the line to get back into the United States from Tijuana. And the food is Cal-Mex at its biggest, with huge combo plates, bigger margaritas, and drinks that masquerade as punch but which pack a bunch better than the right haymaker of Julio Cesar Chavez. Make sure to get the specials that have no name but involve a fried flour tortilla bigger than a surfboard. They also make a very good chile colorado, and a a chimichanga thatâ€™s as flaky as a chicharrĂłn. The tacos are epic, the wet burritos sopping goodâ€”why are you still reading this? Go right nowâ€”and take a designated driver.
