depending on your mood you can usually juice it up with a little flavoring from jamba juice. somewhat expensive for a shake but its well worth it. i usually go with the power size which happens to be the largest. that will run you a little under $5 which isnt that bad. girls love it and their selection is huge. great for something on the go and they even have healthy choices for those who are nutty about staying in shape!
PROS: awesome selection, decent price, many locations
you cant beat in n out burgers if you want cheap fast somewhat healthy burgers. my combo of choice would definitely have to be the double double animal style. absolutely hits the spot and i usually get spread sauce (essentially the same sauce they give you when you order animal style) for my fries.. if you got the crave you definitely have to hit up in n out. beware of drive thru wait times. due to its popularity, be prepared to wait up to 20 minutes.
PROS: awesome food, awesome price
CONS: heavy wait times due to popularity
if you're into fast food you should check out pollo loco. some people prefer their chicken over kfc but i beg to differ. ive tried various things on their menu but i would have to give it up to kfc if i want chicken. many locations throughout southern california for a quick bite to eat. prob not the heathiest fast food you can go with but the people that decide to go there probably dont care much about that.
PROS: food is ok, pricing ok
some friends and i usually hit up yoshi's when we want a quick cheap/tasty meal. i usually get the chicken (skinless) or beef bowl or large side. you cant go wrong with the pricing and the quality of the food isnt the best but of course that's expected. if you like curry style food then you gotta check out yoshinoya. many locations all throughout southern california.
PROS: good tasty food for a good price
for $15 you cant beat manna. you get all you can eat korean bbq so come with a big appetite. if you happen to go on the weekends for dinner you might want t make a reservation. highly recommended unless you dont mind waiting. nice decor, usually packed with koreans and non-koreans from all over los angeles. definitely a good place to go with a group of people. nice comfortable atmosphere and of course a good bang for the buck with all the meat you can eat.
PROS: great food, comfy atmosphere, good bang for the buck
often order from talesai for lunch. definitely on the expensive side but then again considering its location, its somewhat expected. big portions, and really quick delivery. great tasting food. often get seafood pad thai which runs roughly a little over $12. have also tried a number of items on their menu which all seem to be pretty good. summer rolls are quite expensive but really good. exceptional sauce!
PROS: prompt delivery, good tasting thai food, good portions
often order for lunch. big portions, great tasting food. definitely try the chicken tenders and the fried veggies. they definitely hit the spot. will order from them over and over again. everything else ive tried on their menu seems to be pretty good as well but ill stick with my favorites for a while. definitely one of the better places ive tried within the area.
PROS: great food, great prices
my first and only visit to lawry's was exceptional. as expected there was a wait even though we had made reservations. pricing is somewhat on the expensive side considering its a glamourous steakhouse with all the trimmings. had the porterhouse w/ creamed spinach and couple other sides. only thing i didnt like was the seating. we sat next to 2 other couples with barely any privacy which was somewhat annoying. whether it be hearing strangers conversations or them hearing ours. next time i will definitely get a more private table to better enjoy my steak.
PROS: awesome steak, fantastic sides!
CONS: seating - no privacy, expensive..
i went here for dinner on a friday night. located right next door to lawry's with convenient underground parking. food was very tasty and surprisingly better than expected. chicken tenders were really really good. shrip and steak was ok. ive had better but for the price i guess for the price, it was pretty worth it. overall visit was very satisfying. friedly waiters, nicely expected decor and prompt service.
PROS: convenient underground parking, good appetizers, promt service
