Dine on old-time home-cookin' at all hours of the day and night.. In Short Earl's in Orange has been a late-night staple since 1970. The rustic, dimly lit interior offers a perfect post-club ambience. The service is friendly and the bites are budget-friendly, with all-American diner fare served up at all hours. Old-timers are replaced by a young, saucy crowd after 2am. Smokers thrive on the enclosed outdoor patio.
