Best portions?

Ok I am not a fan of "art" food, that really expensive dining experience where food is the art and you pay an arm and a leg for a single grain of rice. ok that is a little over done but anyhow i need portions HUGE portions for the money you pay. think cheesecake factory, claim jumper style. what are the best portions in the oc?

    1. Harbor House in Dana Point will "fill" the bill, (and the flyerfan), and it's open 365/24.

      Harbor House Cafe No 2

      1. If you are not interested in Yuppie food, that overpriced overated food that you need a wheelbarrow of cash to pay for and a magnifying glass to see, you could just go to an all you can eat place such as HomeTowne Buffet.

        1. I find it a rare day when I order Chinese and still find myself wanting... I find that many Chinese restaurants will give you larger portions when you order in, versus ordering out.

          1. re: bulavinaka

            i think happy family on atlantic serves huge portions.

          2. Not sure if they have one in the OC, but christ! the Saddle Ranch would be worth the drive, if you know what I mean! Seriously, they have a kind of steak called "The Saddle Cut" or something like that. The thing is GINARMOUS! and kinda affordable compared to the all the fancy schmancy type places (Lukques - i'm looking in your direction...:). plus you get tons of sides, corn bread and rolls! FYI, you might want to bring two belts!
