Cooks-Corner

Don’t let the rows of Harleys out front intimidate you. Cook’s Corner is a biker bar, but you don’t have to ride on two wheels to feel welcome at the oldest roadhouse in south Orange County. Once fairly isolated, the laidback landmark in Trabuco Canyon is now just a few hundred yards from rows of upscale suburban homes, restaurants, and shopping centers. And it’s a good neighbor, beckoning all walks of life.

The place got its start in 1926, when Earl Cook, son of the surrounding lands’ owner, converted a cabin into a restaurant for local miners and ranchers. He turned it into a bar after Prohibition ended in 1933. Right after World War II, he bought an old mess hall from the decommissioned Santa Ana Army Air Base and launched the tavern. A Santa Ana bike-accessories owner bought the joint in 1970 and shaped it into the old-fashioned roadhouse it remains today.
