The Orange County train-station dining guide: Fullerton

The Fullerton train station — or the Fullerton Transportation Center, as it’s technically called — is a rail and bus depot that serves city denizens, office drones, service-industry workers and hordes of college students. Situated near Cal State Fullerton, and all of the off-campus revelry that comes with it, scores of restaurants, watering holes and cafes can be found within the blocks of the station, all of them within a reasonable distance for pedestrians.

The station is home to the Metrolink 91/Perris Valley Line and Orange County Line commuter rail services, Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner (which runs between San Diego and San Luis Obispo) and Southwest Chief (between Chicago and Los Angeles) trains, and a bus terminal for the Orange County Transportation Authority.

While poring over the guide, bear in mind that selected venues throughout the series are each within a reasonable distance of their stop, whether on foot or by wheelchair, with no major freeways or arteries required to cross. Nearly all of the spots featured are bounded south of Chapman Avenue, east of Highland Avenue, north of Orangethorpe and west of Lemon Street. This list doesn’t cover every single Fullerton bar and restaurant in the area; consider it a selection of favorites near the station, or a palatable jumping off point during your next arrival or layover.
