Where to buy fresh wonderful Bratwurst in OC?

aklectic Jul 8, 2010 01:46 PM

I wanna cook up some Brats this weekend. Does anyone know of any shops in OC that make them fresh as well as tasting amazing? I haven't found a place that does the fresh + tasty combo quite yet. Straight Johnsonville has always tasted better then the ones I have bought at Sprouts, Whole Foods and such.

Any opinions?

    Not sure if they make brat, but Promelis in Costa Mesa makes great sausages in general.

      Satisfaction guaranteed! Try the Bockwurst as well - more pronounced flavor imho. Talk to Wally, the owner, about your plans and objectives. He's a font of knowledge.
