Near Southeast Corner of Magnolia and Garfield
Huntington Beach, CA
After driving past this place a dozen times, getting an e-mail from somebody wondering when I'm going to cover it, having some employees at my optometrist ask if I was going to cover it, seeing that people have been searching for information on it, and getting a phone call from my cousin about it, I decided to finally go to the new Alberto's in Huntington Beach.
This location had been a Taco Bell since the early 1970's, possibly even earlier, up until around 2002 when it became a Subway and it just opened up a couple weeks ago as Alberto's. The building certainly makes more sense as an Alberto's than a Subway.
I met up with my cousin Scott for a very impromptu lunch. He got the carne asada torta:
And I got the camarones empanizado, breaded fried shrimp with tartar sauce, rice and beans, and pico de gallo:
For dessert they have plain, cream-filled, or strawberry-filled churros:
Oh, and they are open 24 hours.
