Here’s what Foodie Flashpacker guest contributor, Julie Diebolt Price, had to say about Tustin eateries.Tustin eateries most popular on Top 11 list

“Many of the eateries in this Top 11 List are popular Tustin restaurants with a history of their own. Established in or around the oldest, most famous landmarks in town, all of these outstanding restaurants are situated in the heart of Orange County.”

Some of my favorite restaurants are in Enderle Center, The District, and Old Town Tustin. Each have a unique presence and presentation. Many cultural dishes include Mediterranean, Italian, Greek, and good old American.

When you try one of these restaurants, be sure to let me know what you think and which is your favorite dish/meal. Do you think some others might qualify to be on this list? I want to know that, too!
