Garden Grove, California - A Beautiful Place to Live

Garden Grove, California is a city with a lot of things to do, attractions to see and great restaurants to eat. The best restaurant in Garden Grove is Oggie's Pizza and Brewing Company. Oggie's is a short drive from Disneyland. After a long day at the amusement park, there isn't much better than a nice big slice of pizza and a big glass of beer from Oggie's, which is the greatest sports bar in Garden Grove. The chicken wings and salads are top quality. This is the restaurant to come for a good meal and a fun time watching the big game. The Buffalo Chicken Salad is a particular favorite of the female customers. The Boiling Crab on Brookhurst Street is the best restaurant in Garden Grove for Vietnamese and French cuisine. And they serve fantastic seafood for unbelievably low prices. With crawfish, clams, and shrimp made to order by the pound, The Boiling Crab is one of the best seafood restaurants in Southern California and probably the best in Garden Grove. Garden Grove is a great town to visit or make a home.
