Im not a cheese on much kinda gal, but it was the right amount, and oh! the sweet grilled onions!!!!! The tastes were just incredible! The sauce was perfect, and nothing was "too much." It was Truly the best ever! Its not small..so be prepared! ( brought half home! And yummy fries! Then theres dessert...mmmm There were 4 of us, and each got simething different, and each in Food heaven.. It's Been here forever, why havent I? I also like that they give.

CLASSIC SHAKE OR MALTED

Also enjoyed a hamburger with fries. Was feeling old school and had a hankerin' for a burger, shake and fries. Could not have been more enjoyable. The atmosphere brought me back to my youth. I don't know if Mr. Watson discovered the lightbulb but he certainly discovered that good food and dynamic service are the key ingredients for a great time!

COUNTRY FRIED STEAK

It was the best, perfect breading and fried to perfection... and Huge! 2nd best is the chocolate shake! You have to get 1/2 meal to go; so you wont be too full to enjoy their delicious chocolate shake!

CLASSIC SHAKE OR MALTED

My boyfriend and I had one of our first dates at Watson's and ordered the Mint Chocolate chip shake and ever since then most of our dates are at Watson's over the same milkshake. It is truly the best milkshake I've had, the portions are amazing and paired with a side of tater tots, it's really the best food in the OC. The environment here is great. I recommend Watson's to everyone who visits OC or whose looking for the perfect date night place. We come here for almost all of our dates and it has the greatest atmosphere for dates, I know that we'll be coming here for years to come. The waiters are always so kind and strike conversation, it has that old type of feel that makes you feel at home and welcomed. I recommend the milkshake and this place to everyone.

CHICKEN WINGS

I love their chicken wings! I was not expecting much from them, but I got some with some friends, and they were cheap and easily sharable. I would recommend them!

CLASSIC HOT FUDGE

Took my kids to watsons for dessert while on vacation from NYC visiting family in orange. Watsons was a delight, kids were so excited, the atmosphere is perfectly vintage and charming, the staff very sweet and patient and the ice cream delicious.
