Wally George mexican plate? (Orange County)

Khojem Nov 26, 2007 10:27 AM

Within the last 10 years, I remember Wally George, former local KDOC-TV (and syndicated) combat TV host, mentioned that there was a restaurant in the OC that had a Wally George Combination Plate. If I recall correctly, the restuarant served mexican food and was located in Anaheim, Garden Grove, Orange, or Santa Ana. Does anyone know if the plate still exists and/or at what restaurant?

Thank you!

    I remember the special you are thinking of. It was at Texas Loosey's, an American restaurant with scantily clad waitresses, across from CSUF. It wasn't a Mexican special, but a burger special with the burger "served in the right side of the basket."

      We're going to get bumped off by the mods, but I can't resist:

      Were the grilled onions "combed over" the top of the burger? ; )

        I believe they had a junior version. Preferably served naked on a train.

      I think you might be thinking of Mr. Smoke BBQ and Polish Restaurant, which is long gone.

        "...which is long gone."

        As is Mr. George.

        This article doesn't mention the combo plate, but it looks like it has a picture of it:
