Anyone who's been around the OC knows of the Peppinos restaurants that have been around since then, well this is a branch out of sorts from one family to another. Bobby Madison and his sister (she was once married to the Peppinos fam) are the Fratellos establishments owners and now our family!
We were regulars before the change over, ordering to-go meals. Fratellos made a wise decision in turning their rental party room into a hip bar! Live music, DJs, bands, flat screens with sports, Lakers nights, Holiday events, birthday celebrations and more! Now we stay and play and eat there!
The staff there, (I really don't see them as that at all, to me they are my extended family) welcome us with warm greetings and open arms, hugs and smiles... Where can you go to in the OC and have that when you walk into a restaurant?... where in the OC can you pick up a photo album off a coffee table and see photos of yourself and neighbors? Where in the OC can you share a mind eraser with the entire bar, lined up, drinks ordered and paid for by the owner?... Where in the OC can you find yourself hanging out with the owner after hours watching a demonstration of fresh pizza being tossed up in the air like an I Love Lucy episode back in the kitchen? I'll tell you where, at the FRAT HOUSE!
Bobby has welcomed us, embraced us with his engaging personality, hilarious humor, his new york accent only adds to the authenticity of this Italian family run business.
And can we talk good food too!...
Fresh hand tossed pizzas, chicken parmisian, happy hour menu is perfect... caprese, mozzarella sticks, bruschetta all very good! The Fratello bread (pepperoni, mozzarella cheese rolled in fresh dough and baked) are our familys favorite! My go to salad is their Asparagus and Artichoke salad (fresh asparagus spears, artichoke hearts, black olives, chopped onion and fresh tomatoes on a bed of crisp mixed greens)... these are the eats I've tried and enjoyed.
We love it there so much we even had our granddaughters 1st birthday there! And there was Bobby and the family making sure everythings was attended to, they even decorated with cute decor themselves to make sure the room fit the event. :) Everyone who came commented on how good the food was.
We have enjoyed many a night at the Frat House, playing with friends, neighbors and other locals. New Years eve, St. Patty's dancing the night away. Nothin' fancy, just casual, comfortable fun!
We love our Fratellos Family, and you will too! Stop in and say Hi, you'll be glad you did. Be sure to meet Bobby, he will be the guy visiting with everyone in the bar... Other VIP family members we love are Heather D., Brooke M., Ryan H. This is why we go back time and time again! I'ts a family affair :) <3 Join the family.
