Well I found this place years ago when I moved from Aliso Viejo to Anaheim. I came here exactly once and thought I was never going to return since it was such a rotten fetid putrid place. I mean the worst things you can imagine, a bad stench, flys and gnats everywhere, partially wilted produce. It was disgusting. I have seen a lot of third world markets that were a million times better.
Consequently, I decided that I didn't need to ever visit this place. Fast forward to about 6 months ago. I hadn't been to this store in the interim 8 years. However I got a new job not far away and I had a friend who moved somewhat close to this store. Well upon his mentioning the place wasn't a cesspool, I decided to set foot inside of it one last time.
So one day after getting a haircut, my barber is a block away http://www.yelp.com/biz/… I decided to get some quickie lunches if they had any on sale and to just look around the store.
Much to my great happiness, the place was not drowning in squalor. It had been remodeled and looked nice. The smell was gone; the food looked nice and edible. It was an entirely different experience than I had had here ever before.
I even made a few purchases and have been back a few times to pick up quickie microwaveable lunches. If you are in the area and need a quick grocery store duck in, this is the place to go to IMHO.
