Orange County Restaurant with ridiculously large portions?

DrBruin Mar 7, 2010 09:59 AM

I was talking with a friend the other day about ridiculously large breakfasts (after we both were watching those TV shows on the travel channel about huge portions) and I recall that there was a restaurant that was all the rage maybe 15-20 years ago near Disneyland (I think) that served huge portions... like 12 egg omletes, etc but I am completely blanking on the name. I want to say they specialized in breakfast.

Anyone know the name of this place? And, are they still in business?

      You must be thinking of Belisle's, formerly on the corner of Harbor and Chapman. The food portions were so ridiculously huge that, at first, I thought it was part of Disneyland, which opened the same year, I believe. It wasn’t, of course, and passed away about 15 years ago. Can’t say that I miss it. Eating there was mostly a novelty as the food was not at all memorable, except for the sizes.

        If you want the same experience, replete with absolutely atrociously-overcooked food, go to John's Eat and Park in Burbank.

          Yeah, it's most likely the long departed Belisle's.

          As for the food, I do remember you got a whole loaf of sweet cornbread with your meal. It was hot and delicious. I do not remember anything else.

            That's the place... thank you.
