Well, I was quite happy with myself after finding this place on Yelp for me and my friends after my band’s show, but when I told my parents where I was eating, they were all like “Oh yeah we used to eat there years ago.”
That happens to me a lot.
Regardless, a really solid burger! On menu it’s called the “bacon guac cheeseburger,” but really it’s just avocado on there. Which I prefer! The vegetables in a full on guac would prove redundant on a burger, in my opinion.
Blue Moon and Newcastle are about as crafty as the beer list goes, but I can totally live with those. A word of warning, though―a “large” beer here could perhaps be called gauche if it were some beverage other than beer.
Good fries and an excellent chocolate shake rounded out the drive-in burger experience.

This here was actually the first time I ordered any sort of steak and eggs. I’ve been to plenty of places where one very well could order such a dish, but this time was the same old story of going to a new place, trying a new thing, etc. I figured Early Bird was a good place to branch out.
And what a first time it was!
I’ll just start off by saying that everything was perfectly cooked. Everything. The ribeye was a beautiful medium rare, the potatoes had a nice pan-fried crisp on them, and the sunny side up eggs were great. The steak coming out at an actual medium rare is quite a feat given that it was so thin. The tomato, asparagus, mushroom, and caramelized onion sauté sort of thing was a great complement and the smoked tomato béarnaise tied the whole plate together, as a sauce should.
Also of note are Early Bird’s single-origin coffees, craft-roasted for Early Bird right in Placentia. During my visit, they were brewing a wonderful El Salvadoran coffee that was just my kind of coffee―pleasantly bitter, with just a hint of chocolate, and nicely aromatic. I ended up having 4 cups, about 4 times my usual coffee consumption in a sitting.
A very well presented dish, on top of everything else.
