State Senator Lou Correa celebrates the opening of the new Lee’s Sandwiches in Santa Ana
It is a big deal when a new business opens up in Santa Ana, particularly during the awful economic crisis our nation is currently undergoing. Perhaps that is why so many local politicians showed up at the new Lee’s Sandwiches in Santa Ana yesterday to celebrate the opening of this new franchise.
State Senator Lou Correa enjoyed an iced coffee while touring the new restaurant. Other local elected officials who attended included State Assemblyman Jose Solorio, Santa Ana Councilman Vince Sarmiento, and a representative from Supervisor Janet Nguyen’s office. Orange County Clerk-Recorder candidate Hugh Nguyen was also there.
The new Lee’s is located at 3350 South Bristol St. in Santa Ana. Click here for a map of this new location. It is located in the Target shopping center, with frontage on Bristol St.
I tried the #4 – a chicken sandwich with cilantro and marinated carrots and onions. It was delicious! I also tried the waffles with coconut, which were pecan green and actually quite good.
According to one of the owners, the restaurant was busy all day on Saturday, despite the rain.
