OC Weekly's Description

After a long battle with the city of Santa Ana to finally get the Crosby up and running, former Weekly cover boys finally managed to sort through all that red tape and got this gem to shine right in the middle of Santa Ana's Artist Village. Serving a vegan-friendly menu well into the wee hours, the Crosby attends to nightlife-lovers with a myriad of drinks and talented DJs filling the void. Live music and heady libations, sure, but the secret is the stellar kitchen: the Crosby's jerk carnitas sandwich was one of OC Weekly's Top 100 Dishes of 2010, and the cream of cilantro pesto pizza is a vegetarian's dream. The coolest detail: during the daytime, beats sometimes blast through a multitude of ghetto blasters lining the walls.

    Great happy hour specials, great food with vegan options available, and good atmosphere. I'll be coming here often.

    Best DJs I've heard in a while, most getto blasters of any bar, great food, no one is too cool to talk to, themed music nights are really fun.

    Chill environment to hang out with friends and have a couple of drinks. They have a DJ spinning on weekends. The food is decent, drinks are decent. I like it because it's right in the Santa Ana Arts District and its walking distance to the Grand Central when there is an art show going on.

    Order the Jerk Carnitas Torta! The housemade pickled onions make it. This not-too-tart, spicy and sweet add-on proves that a simple ingredient can do amazing things to an already amazing sandwich!

    go for happy hour, 1$ PBR's and $5 dollar pizzas.

    Come to the Crosby for a night of bass-thumpin' music and a to-die-for happy hour menu! Dishes include steaks, sandwiches, and tostadas! Voted Best Restaurant in OC Weekly's Best of 2011 Issue.

    Don't go on Saturday nights.

    OMG!!!!! Don't mean to yell, maybe I'm just drunk, but holy fudge the lobster cheese taco is the best thing I've ever had.
