Loved this place! The decor is really crazy, lots of strings of lights, old pics cover the walls, rustic wood on walls and sawdust on floor. Large bar with plenty of tables and small outdoor patio. Quality was great on every count. Service was friendly and very good. Beer selection, they have 119 taps. So you should be able to find something you like. Food was very good, I had the fish and chips and it was excellent. Hubby had the pulled pork and said it was fantastic. One of the best he's ever had! Only complaint was they give you to many fries, really the amount they give one person could feed four. I had the curly fries and they were delish but I hardly made a dent in the pile on my plate. Value was great. Would go back here for sure.Also want to say this place is family friendly so bring the kids.

Stopped here for dinner with my buddy after a mini-beer crawl around the Vista area.
Had Drake 1500 and a Mission Street Session Pale Ale (the name escapes me). Both seemed fresh and good. The food was decent, big portions which was appreciated after consuming many beers throughout the day.
Free peanuts at the bar. Service was quick and more than helpful.
The one comment is that this place turns into a college bar with many colorful drinks being poured toward the end of our visit. A great place to meet people but loses the craft beer/pub aspect as the night progresses and becomes more like a club. So if that's your thing, cool, if not, go for lunch.

I could've sworn that I reviewed Heroe's back in my first days of BA. Well, I guess I didn't. Heroe's is an institution in Orange County, and the dowtown Fullerton scene was almost exclusively born out of Heroe's success.
I have been a regular at Heroe's since it's opening. Actually was there before they had all of their paperwork in order, so they tapped a keg, and were just giving their beer away (ostensibly just for friends-ala private party style). Absolutely amazing what Jack and his crew created in such a small space, originally at the Villa del Sol in the heart of dowtown. The food was always very good, and the portions were huge, even in the early days. But for me, the beer selection was always excellent.
Back in the early 90's I told Billy, who helps handle beer ordering, about Stone starting to distribute to BJ's in Brea, so he called Stone, and became one of the first to pour Stone on tap in North OC. They take good care of their beer, cleaning their tap lines often--You wouldn't get an "off" beer at Heroe's. Now Heroe's anchors the SoCo district. The food is still very good, still served in huge portions, and they still have a great beer selection. If you are a BA, and in OC, it is a must stop for pub food and beer.

Heroes is located on the main drag in Fullerton on Harbor/Sante Fe. There is parking on the street throughout the area.
The space is fairly large with lots of high tables and the bar near one entrance. Table seating is more prevalent near the other entrance. The bar boasts a huge mirror and there are bison heads along with a clear view of all the taps. There are peanut shells everywhere as they are passed out to all patrons. In addition there is a beer menu available.
As for the taps, there are at least 100 which is amazing. However on closer inspection more than half are macros or common brews. Still there are plenty of gems including New Belgium, Pyramid, Stone, The Bruery, Bootlegger, Karl Strauss, Kona, Moylan's and many more. A good amount of imports as well.
Service was good on a weekday early evening. The bartenders had a good grasp of the beer list and made other recommendations on beer spots in the area.
I did not have any food on this visit (other than peanuts).
Overall this is a good spot to hit in Fullerton. Not the best to place to go if you want to try new brews all night but worthwhile nonetheless.

Went here sunday 11/8/09. Sat outside as to not wait for a table. They have a pretty good list of taps to choose from. I ended up going with a pint of Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout at $6. It was the worst beer pour imaginable. I was outside so I did not witness it, so I'm not sure if the waitress poured the beer or bartender. The glass came to me with about 3/4 head and 1/4 beer, I was in conversation when it showed up so I waited untill the beer settled and it ended up less then 3/4 full, I informed the waitress she looked confused and came back with the beer topped off but still not a proper poor. The food is good and in large quantity.

I prefer to go to this Heroe's because they have a more extensive beer list. But that's just about the only reason.
I have been here a few times and each time I'm reminded of why I don't go here more often, despite the fact that it has one of the better tap lists in the area.
During the day or on a non-weekend night, it is okay. But if you're there on a Friday or Saturday night, or even on a Thursday, it's going to be FULL of the typically low-brow Downtown Fullerton Bar crowd.
The place itself is decorated with plenty of antique trinkets, signs, and even bicycles. Everyone is given packages of peanuts upon sitting down and throwing the shells on the floor is standard operating procedure.
The beer list is fairly large, offering a lot of Stone, some Anderson Valley, Bootleggers, Firestone, a few German beers, Chimay (Blue), and your typical Fat Tire, Sierra Nevada, Guiness, and a slew of BMC beers. Surprisingly they also have Lindeman's Framboise and Pomme, but both are bottles only and are pricey at $9 for a 375ml bottle. They also offer a few ciders.
The service is fine. Nothing to write home about, but never bad either. The one thing I would advise against is splitting up a check if you're with a group and everyone is paying separately. I've had HUGE problems with this here.
The food is your typical bar food. I generally get some sort of burger or sandwich, which are good, big and come with a ridiculously large order of fries. The sandwiches tend to be $9-12 with other dishes being the same or more expensive.
