As a former two-year vegetarian, ribs, pastrami, and barbecue chicken were nowhere in my dictionary. At barbecue restaurants, I (sadly) opted for salads and pasta while my friends sucked on ribs. One bite of meat was a capital vice. Then I became not a vegetarian.

Vegetarians, this is your guide to vegetarian hell - the 10 meatiest and deadliest sins in Orange County. Be wary: temptation may be provoked. And hey, if (when) you decide to start eating meat again, you can use this as a reference.

In no particular order..

All That Barbecue (Irvine)

It's.. sigh.. All That

All-you-can-eat Korean barbecue joints are undoubtedly the epicenters of carnivore carnivals in Orange County. At a place like All That, where the meats are lean and marinated to perfection, knowing when to stop binging is hard. If you end up feeling bad, though, I suggest you grab the provided salad bowl for mercy. That's what it's there for.

The Hat (Lake Forest)

If you want to fall into a black-hole of never-ending pastrami, then The Hat is a good place to start. At The Hat, pastrami is the focal point of every menu item, heavily topping every burger, sandwich, and plate of fries. Remember, at The Hat there's no such thing as too much pastrami, so order away. Why else would you be at there anyways? (OK, the Orange Bang is nice too).

Tulsa Rib Company (Orange)

Thank you, Steve Parker

When bitten, Tulsa Rib Company's rib meat falls off effortlessly, like a feather falling from the sky. Once in your mouth, the tangy barbecue sauce - if it's the Caribbean you ordered - infiltrates the taste buds, leaving you to clean your palette with the equally succulent creamed corn or cole slaw.

Gen and agora are the best places in Oc to indulge yourself limitlessly in meat!

I got a joke for you: How can you spot a vegan? Don't worry, they'll fucking tell you.

I'd rather go to Mongolian BBQ across the food court in the Village than Fil Am. Or better yet Todai.

meat is murder... but obviously u dont believe that shit... because ur a MAN'S MAN... master of his dominion... u lay claim to all u see... long as it serves your purpose... because our culture values that way more than being simple and gentle... so enjoy ur steaks and burgers... dont let me bother u.

So...that was an overly-elaborate way just to make a "Welcome Matt" pun?

I shouldn't have read this right before lunch. Those dogs are making me drool.


If you want to be the envy of your neighbors and have been greedy enough to afford such gluttony, take your neighbor's wife to The Ranch and order the 52 oz bone-in ribeye.

Portillo's is not just Chicago-themed...it's really from Chicago. Step it up, interns
