Keeping kids active requires a fine balance between fitness and fun, and Step It Up Fitness has found the right notes with its Benchwarmer after-school recreation program. Playing Capture the Flag and ultimate frisbee keeps kids aged 5–15 on their feet and exercising without a regimented fitness program. The company extends this type of tailored program to adults as well, and also welcomes personal-training clients.
Peppino's menu of family-style portions provides more savory pairings than grandma could shake a slotted spoon at. Ease a land lover into the seafood sampler, composed of halibut, shrimp, scallops, and salmon atop a bed of angel-hair pasta infused with a garlic-basil tomato sauce and a splash of white wine ($21.95), or teach the young ones the true meaning of antipasto with a piled-high salad of salami, capicola, ham, mortadella, provolone, red onions, black olives, tomatoes, pepperoncini, kitchen sinks, roasted peppers, and mixed greens ($9.95).
Yellowfin Fish Grill's cooks unite their menu fresh-caught seafood with a single defining flavor (other than "fish"). They grill every dish over a hot fire fueled by mesquite charcoal, which gives their ahi tuna burritos, racks of lamb, and shrimp salads their signature taste. They offer more than wraps and salads, though. They grill swordfish steaks and red snapper fillets, served with two sides and any one of nine sauces. Among familiar choices such as creamy garlic butter, they prepare some more unusual sauces such as ginger miso or mango sauce.

From a humble beginning as a family business in Tustin more than 25 years ago, Jalapeños has flourished into multiple restaurants throughout Orange County. It's an achievement almost as impressive as the sheer number of burritos on the Tustin menu: 15. And that number could be easily doubled by having each one made mojado-style with melted cheese on top. Classic combinations of beans and meat share the page with creations like the Chile Colorado—beef chunks, red chile, and cheese—as well as vegetarian burritos that are stuffed with the likes of chiles rellenos and veggies instead of just another tortilla wadded up.
Of course, the menu also includes tacos, tortas, and tostadas. Specialty dinners here range from enchiladas to plates of beef tongue and carnitas. To add a little tang to your meal, order an entire marinated jalapeno on the side and douse the spiciness with an imported beer.
