Playground is a American, Lunch, and Contemporary restaurant where most Menuism users came for fun with friends, paid between $25 and $50, and tipped more than 18%.

Well before setting out on the Great Food Truck Race in the spring of 2011, I dreamed of taking what I started on The Lime Truck and expanding it into a restaurant like no other. I envisioned a big, beautiful building filled with character and style, an open kitchen and stunning bar, shiny new equipment, and a team of passionate foodies to help me change how food and drink is prepared, served...

If you're a Lime Truck groupie, you've probably already made a pilgrimage to Playground. And if you're not a follower of the food truck scene, but are a follower of interesting food, you should check out this new restaurant in the bustling East End of downtown Santa Ana.
