Carrillo's Tortilleria

Reviewed By Thomas S - Malibu, California, United States

Counter ordering of traditional Mexican cuisine with quick service and good food. There are many very good Mexican restaurants in the area the are comparable or better. We tried the tamales, tacos and carnitas plates. The tortilla's are delicious and fresh, we ordered more to take back to our co-workers. Nice selection of Mexican beers and there is a Soda fountain.

An extremely efficient yet friendly version of the coffee house that we love to hate. I've been here some 10 times now, and always been met with a seemingly sincere smile. There is an outside seating area, and a drive-thru. The only thing missing is comfy chairs. Plenty of high stools and wooden chairs, maybe people just don't use this Starbucks to sit around in for long!
I will continue to use it.

Like the yogurt. Place had food all over floor the extras were all mixed in the other containers. Gummies with Oreos and banana chips with white chips. Hasn't been cleaned up in a while. The carrot cake was hard. But ice cream acai berry was good. Hmm not sure why this small place can't look better on inside. Hey do. It serve ghetto food so keep the place up or you will bring in the wrong crowd.

Magaly's Tamales

Reviewed By tinalouise63 - Los Angeles, California

After waiting in a huge line, I couldn't wait to take a dozen tamales home, she gave them to me cold. Huh I want hot. She said hot wasn't ready, but hot are more expensive. What did I care I want warm food. Anyway. I was disappointed too much masa. Go to carrillos on pico they sell them hot and they Are juicy way less mass.

James Restaurant

Reviewed By dknight818 - Colorado Springs, Colorado

We picked this place based MOSTLY on the kitschy sign and exterior and also because we were simply ready to eat and it was close. The reviews of the place were iffy and, as we found out, pretty accurate. The place is visually appealing, it's a beautiful example of a mid-century diner and the interior is immaculate. Very clean and well cared for. The service is...Well...Slow. To be fair, OUR server was working her butt off taking care of multiple people and multiple tables while two other servers and the hostess stood around chatting. The food was certainly nothing to write home about, it wasn't BAD...But it wasn't great. Unremarkable, really, but better than not eating at all. The overall value was pretty good, though.

In-N-Out Burger

At In-N-Out Burger, quality is everything. Stop by to enjoy our menu of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, french fries and shakes. In-N-Out makes fast food the old fashioned way.

Reviewed By Ibizan_Yankee - Cala Tarida, Spain

If you want a good hamburger or perhaps the best in Los Angeles that I have found (an honest hamburger) is at In-N-Out. Try the double-double cheeseburger. They cook to order and their French fries are sliced and cooked in front of you. It is very good.

The Crunchy Crab

Reviewed By Jack C - hollywood, california

We were hungry and needed to kill an hour before a tour so we stopped in at the Crunchy Crab and were delighted with the menu, the food and the wonderful service! The softshell crab offering was wonderful, but could have been even better with less batter. Since I'm from the Eastern Shore of Maryland you should trust me on that. Great lunch!

This is my favorite Mexican lunch spot in the San Fernando Valley. Very good food, reasonable prices, comfortable setting, friendly, relaxed service with two big screen tv's for watching soccer matches, or whatever else happens to be of interest. One of the rare places that serves goat and I highly recommend it. Good for Families, lunch with business associates and special events.

Smoked meats are really the draw at this little sandwich shop. Very nice smoked chicken sandwich with slaw "north Carolina" style and delicious crisp fries. Small location. But nice staff and plenty of seating on patio.
