All I ever wanted… all I ever needed is here in my arms.
Words are very unnecessary… they can only do harm.

If you find yourself in the OC (Orange County, California), there are a few things you *need* to do. First, make your way down to Huntington Beach – Surf City USA. Then, take a leisurely stroll on the boardwalk, and seek out BACON MANia Surf City, just steps from The Waterfront Beach Resort, a Hilton Hotel. Here, you’ll dine on bacon, bacon and more bacon (with a side of bacon).
What’s on the Menu? Here are my picks of the bacon bunch:
Bacon Ball Trio: Three of our most delicious bacon-wrapped bites of brilliance – The Mac’n Bac’n (Cheddar Bacon Mac n’ Cheese), the Bacon Mignon (Petite Filet and Gorgonzola) and the PB&J (on crustless Wonder Bread). Wrapped in Applewood Smoked Bacon and Deep Fried.
Speedy Gonzales: Arriba! Whole jalapeno stuffed w/ Sharp Cheddar Cheese and wrapped with Applewood Smoked Center Cut Bacon. Sauced with our Spicy Chipayo.
Dog Nuts: Always served in pairs, this occasionally featured ball is a Greek Pepperoncini wrapped in Carne Asada and then wrapped in Applewood Smoked Center Cut Bacon!
THE MAIN GRUB
B.L.T: We serve this classic sammie on a Whole Wheat Hoagie with Malabar-peppered Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato and our Spicy Chipayo. (Add Avo to make it A-mazing!)
The Piggy Back: These pork-on-pork sliders are made from Slow-Cooked Pulled Pork Shoulder, mixed with Hickory Smoked Bacon, tossed in our Bacon BBQ Sauce, then topped with a tangy Carolina Slaw!
The Rico: Gourmet 1/2 lb. All-Beef Frankfurter, wrapped in Applewood Smoked Bacon, then smothered in Caramelized Onions, Grilled Jalapenos, and our Spicy Chipayo.
Mac’n Bac’n: Our truckmade baked Macaroni and Cheese, with Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Hickory Smoked Bacon, with just a bit of a tangy kick!
Loaded Fries: Crispy Shoestrings topped with your Bacony favorites! Choose Piggy Fries (Pork, Bacon & Slaw), Mac Fries (Mac’n Bac’n), or ChiChee Fries (Chili & Cheese).
Pig Feed: Popcorn, Cashews, and Bacon, covered in Caramel — with a Cayenne kick!
Brownie Bites: Moist and chocolatey, wrapped in Bacon & deep fried, then drizzled with Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup.
Cinni Bites: Bite-sized Cinnamon Rolls wrapped in Bacon & deep fried. Dusted with Cinnamon & Sugar.
We were treated to a sampling of BACON MANia’s indulgent offerings during our recent #DisneyVacayCA, courtesy of the good folks at Anaheim/Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau. Since I have a knack for choosing the best thing on the menu (not braggin’ or anything… okay, maybe just a little), of course I ordered the Jack Back Sammie, which we later discovered is an award-winning creation, taking home the “Best of the Fest Trophy” from the Orange County Foodie Fest.
(Stuffed egg bread, sharp cheddar cheese and hickory-smoked bacon… what’s not to love?)
So maybe BACON MANia isn’t the best choice for daily grub. But when in SoCal, do as the locals do… throw on your bathing suit and roller blades, hit the boardwalk, and don’t you dare leave without indulging in some BACON MANia – a must-try stop for bacon lovers.
