lunch places near long beach airport
nothing specific, just good eats!
The closest good place for lunch is Baja Sonora for killer fast-food Mexican, corner of Spring and Clark:
Tiny Thai is not too far from LGB, at 4152 Norse Way (side street near the corner of Lakewood and Carson), and I like the food there a lot.
There's a Mosher's Deli at Clark and Willow. Avoid it at all costs.
i'd go for bake 'n' broil, on atlantic just north of wardlow. there's also a mustard's hotdog stand at atlantic and wardlow, and the teri-house in the same minimall is pretty good.
On Bellflower, south of Willow, there's Hof's Hut, an above average coffee shop/diner; local chain that also operates Lucille's BBQ. Good, solid food and bakery items. Off of Carson and Lakewood, on either Norse Way or Viking (I forget which) is Dale's Diner, a 50's kinda burger joint. Across the street from that is a little Middle Eastern/Mediterranean place that's always good for a quick, cheap lunch. Other than that, there are tons of chain places, especially if you go up to the northern end of Lakewood Maill (iirc, Michelson Street).
