Where to buy fresh wonderful Bratwurst in OC?

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?

    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.

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