I heard about this tiny little gem from another business. Its small, very accessible, and well worth the wait for home cooked Papusas. They are light and fluffy and melt in your mouth. Made fresh to order, there are so many flavors, that @ $1.90 you'll be able to afford more than one; to sample them. There are little tables inside and outside, parking in front. You will be hooked after the first bite. And if you like your food spicy then you'll love these papusas. The other prices are also low and again, its like having food from your best friends mom, who is from El Salvador!!
If you want amazing Italian food with a Northern flare, then you must experience Munari Produce!! Wine, food, style are all authentic. You wont find better unless you travel to Italy.
The location is also amazing, just like you were in Italy. I suggest any of the side salads, Ministrone soup, any entree, and a Cannoli to finish it off.
There is seating; with decor, you'll forget that you are in the desert.
When you are done dining, go ahead and shop for fresh produce.
Enjoy and Mangiare!!
I use to frequent this restaurant quite often, and I am not sure if they changed ownership, but the quality of food just went downhill. I do have a few friends that enjoy their food, but the last 2 times that I went and dined-in, the food was very salty and one of the times they must have just cleaned as there was a strong order of cleaning chemicals. This was the last time for me. I have eaten the most expensive items being served as a sit down meal and have ordered just a simple meal of vegetables and rice as a pick-up order.
Their service is quick and friendly, whether it be dine-in or pick-up, but their quality and taste is just too inconsistent for me.
The restaurant sits in a parking lot, usually no problem, and prices are reasonable.
My favorite dish from here is Kung Pao Chicken.
The best thing about this restaurant is the outside seating area with the heat lamp/torches. If you smoke this is a good thing and if you dont then you need to sit inside. Its one of the few all night restaurants so its gets rather busy on the weekends. The food is typical diner food, but the I believe the owner is Greek, so the salads have Feta cheese if you want along with Greek olives. The servings are large, counter and booth seating besides the outdoor seating. The bathrooms could be cleaner and the waitresses will kind of give you the boot if you stay too long and get too many refills. I like the breakfast items and soups the best, and find that this type of atmosphere reminds me of high school and old movies. Service is pretty quick and has a good ambience. There is parking either on the street or in the lot in the back.
If you like chili come to Chili Johns, WOW, fantastic chili at affordable prices. I have been buying chili here since the 1970's and never tire of their chili or the cool atmosphere inside. The outside doesnt look like much, and hasnt changed that I know of, but inside is the best chili. Homemade, you wont find anything in a jar or at any other fast food restaurant that tastes this good. Service is great, its a fun place to stop at for lunch, but can sometimes get busy. Street parking only, give it a try!
I was hoping by the name and location that I would find more than I did inside, but the inventory is pretty scarce. They do, however, have a some neat movie/tv collectibles like action figures and posters but there really isnt anything else in the store and you can be in out in 10 minutes. So, we were pretty disappointed in our trip down there. Prices are ok. Parking is on the street and is scarce, so you might have to use some of the sidestreets.
Once in a while I quilt and wanted to make a unique wedding present. So, after I made my quilt I called a few places looking for someone who would machine embroider two names and a date. Finally, after several calls, Burbank Embroidery said they would do the job for me. It wasnt expensive at all and I even got to go into the shop and watch how it was done. They do several other services like screen printing for promotional items and the such. I am sure that in large quantities there work is flawless as my item was and the recepients really enjoyed there one of a kind item. Thanks Burbank Embroidery I really appreciate the personal service that you gave me.
There is no other store like this, guaranteed! If you are into horror movies, skeletons, gothic products, unique items like coffin shaped purses then you'll be at home at this shop. There are magic books, coffin shaped trinkits, Emily Strange items, horror film posters, occult books, crystal balls, you name it, if its unusual you might find it here. There are also book readings and other appearances of horror book writers and the like. Prices are pretty good and if you want uniques gifts for the person that is hard to by for, or goth then come here. Parking is on the street and the owners and employees are very nice.
Althought this is Armenian owned, they make several Greek pastries that are delicious along with other Middle Eastern delacacies. The shop is small but loaded with tradional pastries that are filled with chocolate or Bavarian creme. They also have coffee based treats like Cappacinos, expressos and lattes as well as ice creams and frozen yogurts. I love the coconut macaroons and cookies because they are really large and filling. There is seating inside and outside in a little quaint garden. Prices are so low that its hard not to overeat. Street parking and sometimes hard in the morning, because everyone is stopping for their own coffee and pastries.
This little restaurant used to be really, really good. But then they changed the black beans that they use and the food wasnt so good. As long as you dont get the beans, you will love the Tex-Mex flavor and unique authentic taste. Regular fare includes hard shell tacos, burritos, taquitos, quesadillas. I have had them!! The tostadas/taco salads are great and the flour tortilla is the best, but get the regular refried beans, not the black ones. Sitting is either inside at tall tables or outside along the restaurants exterior wall. They are still busy at lunch time, but I dont frequent them as much as I used to. I recommend the quesadilla so that you can sample all of their different salsas at the salsa bar. The prices are very good, parking is on the street and sometimes hard but there are public lots available.
