lunch in Van Nuys

Have to be in Van Nuys Tuesday, in the area of Victory and Van Nuys Blvd.. Any decent places for a quick lunch?

  1. La Fogata for decent mexican
    Zankou for rotisserie chicken with garlic sauce
    The Pho place next door to 99 Ranch Market

    1. What about El Loco Del Pollo, it's right on Victory and Van Nuys. Super tasty chicken and the rice as a side dish is a pretty good meal. Would recommend the half though, it's very filling.

      1. How about grabbing some tacos at Vallarta on Victory and Woodley?

        1. Wons Coffee Shop
          Best Chinese In the Valley. Don't be put off by the location. Try to get there before noon when it turns into a madhouse.

            I too love Wons and recommend it. BUT, go knowing that it's a greasy spoon type place for Chinese food.

          2. When I'm in that general vicinity, I never fail to choose Fab's Italian Kitchen on Van Nuys Blvd, a block South of Ventura Blvd. Their lunch menu includes sandwiches, pastas, pizzas, and soups. Although not on the menu, I invariably gobble up a pretty good size order of clams oreganata, then sop up the heavily garlic-infused sauce with their sourdough rolls, and then I go breathe on somebody and watch their reaction.
