I spent the morning after my annual fantasy football draft chasing the hair of the dog at Javi’s, an upscale Mexican restaurant at John Wayne International Airport in Orange County, Calif., with good drinks and an interesting menu.
Exhibit A was my huevos con chorizo. The small jalapenos provided just enough of a kick, while the gooey refried beans topped with cheese won me over in the texture department. Fresh from the oven, the homemade flour tortillas were as warm as the servers, who looked worried when I put my head down on the bar and quietly wept about the Tommyknockers pounding inside my head.
So if you happen to fly into or out of John Wayne, visit Javi’s for some pretty good Mexican chow. The margaritas aren’t bad, either.
