Phlight

Reviewed By semanticvision - Los Angeles, California

This is my neighborhood joint if I have visitors coming to town. While technically not 100% authentic experience of a real tapas restaurant vs. the ones in Spain, but the dishes are well executed and service has always been great. They have basic options for good wines and allow BYO wine with and without corkage pending on the day of the week. Highly recommend.

California Grill is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. They serve an excellent breakfast (Belgian waffles) and lunch and dinner are excellent also. Love the California BLT and Charlie Melt. The fries are great! Salads are excellent! The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We highly recommend California Grill.

Pizzamania

Reviewed By Wazcrakinps - Whittier

Pizza is very subjective to folks. Thin, thick, pineapple no pineapple etc. I've been coming here 30+ years. It has always been the best pizza around. I like other spots like Ambrose and Shakey's, but they are different. This place has great, solid pizza with quality toppings. I got delivery but the inside is remodeled and has a few games for the kids.

Lascari's Italian Deli

Reviewed By PasCaLady - Pasadena, California

My cousin brought me here for lunch and we really enjoyed the food. Service was very friendly and efficient. I had a Barbecue Chicken Salad, which was very crisp and full of fresh ingredients. It was huge with lots of freshly sauteed chicken and a creamy dressing with barbecue sauce. I had to take half home. Delicious crusty hot rolls fresh out of the oven were served with the salad. My cousin got a submarine sandwich, the small one, which was still large enough to take half home. It was loaded with lots of lunch meat and cheese on a nice Italian roll. The prices are very reasonable and the food was so good we plan to return again soon and bring friends for dinner.

The Rusty Monk

Reviewed By JackR46 - Fullerton, Ca, USA

Fantastic fresh Bavarian soft pretzels and great selection of Belgian style beers. Party of four - (1) one person enjoyed the Branzino (2) two of us thought the schnitzel, moules and battered fish (deep fried so long they were more like hard commercial fish sticks) were very mediocre (3) my wife thought the Country goat cheese salad was very poor, especially with the chicken added - she said nothing to us during the meal, but on the way home, she said the chicken was "ice cold", like just taken out of a refrigerator and placed on the salad. When she orders this type of salad at most restaurants, the chicken is grilled and still warm when placed on the salad. Would definitely go back for some beer and pretzels, but was not impressed with the quality of the entrees that night.

Original Roadhouse Grill

Original Roadhouse Grill features an authentic roadhouse menu and a down-home, fun lovin' atmosphere. You'll find peanuts served in buckets and peanut shells on the floor. Country music, classic rock and blues can be heard coming out of our jukebox. Bring in the whole family and crew in for a fun and delicious experience at an All American Steakhouse. Our signature rolls and mouth watering food cooked on our open-window grill will keep you coming back for more.

While on vacation, we went with family members in Whittier to the Original Roadhouse Grill. A bucket of peanuts on the table for an appetizer right away! Great service and food. Very casual and relaxing. Definitely would return.

Reviewed By Keystone_Traveler - Malvern, Pennsylvania

First impressions are very positive in this upscale pub; the decor, lighting, and layout are very welcoming once you're inside. Candidly, from the street, the entrance is plain and not very noticeable. Once I was seated the warmth of the atmosphere was very noticeable; this is a great place to be. Reportedly there are about 24 craft beers on tap and there is a rotating seasonal menu. I thoroughly enjoyed an avocado Turkey burger with a side of arugula salad. The bartenders are knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. This restaurant is a popular destination on wonderful, tree-lined Greenleaf Avenue in the Uptown Whittier section; the area has a few other restaurants, pubs, and shops.

This truly is a "family restaurant". It is run by family and it is good family friendly dining. Everything is well prepared and they make the guacamole fresh for right at your table! All things combined, this is our new family favorite for Mexican food!
