Lots of parking in the area. We go early and eat at Azteca or Louie's on Main (easy walk south on Main Street). They now have a liquor license and always have wonderful homemade treats.

Get there early, park by the theater (lots of parking) then walk one block to the Azteca Mexican Restaurant for a step back in time. Lots of Elvis memorabilia. Good food and fun just to walk around and see all the stuff they have collected.

Small parking lot, plus easy, free street parking nearby. There's also a Farmer's Market on the next block on Sunday afternoons, so you can visit it as well if you're attending a matinee.

Main street Garden Grove reminds me of a small time town which I think is great. There are numerous places to eat within walking distance to the theatre.

Parking is available in a small lot to the side and in front of the theater. I arrived 30 min before the 8:00 PM show on a Saturday and there was plenty of parking.
