Working Late - Delivery in Santa Monica

I'm at my office and don't want to leave and take an hour+ to go to dinner. I'm on the 28th block of Santa Monica (between harvard and yale). I'm looking for some delivery, but don't really want to pay the LA Bites delivery charge (a 15 dollar meal suddenly seems to jump to 30, for some reason)... any advice? I'm open to almost anything, except maybe pizza.

      1. I like Classic Pizza in Santa Monica for delivery. Not sure how late they are open but their prices are reasonable and all of the sandwiches and salads I have had have been quite good. Even their pasta dishes are good, if not cooked al dente. If you google them as:

        Classic Pizza Santa Monica CA you will probably find a link to their menu online.

        1. re: tony michaels

          the Italian cold cut sandwich never disappoints. The bread is from la brea bakery.

          i find their pastas sub par though and sometimes too oily.

        2. These are my go-to delivery places when in a bind (meaning I'm not saying they're the most amazing dining on earth):

          Soybean Chinese
          11966 Wilshire Blvd
          Los Angeles, CA 90025
          (310) 447-6526
          Good: 1/2 roasted duck, shrimp with mixed vegetables, bbq pork pan fried noodles

          Bangkok West Thai
          606 Santa Monica Blvd
          Santa Monica, CA 90401
          (310) 395-9658
          Good: cashew chicken, red, green, panang & duck curries, pad thai, emperor duck rolls

          The Clay Pit (Indian) (I think they deliver without it being through LABite...)
          145 S Barrington Ave
          Los Angeles, CA 90049-3310
          (310) 476-4700
          Good: papri chat, lamb vindaloo, chicken tikka masala, biriyani

          and they make good pizza, but their sandwiches are also great:
          Dagwoods Pizza
          820 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA
          (310) 899-3030
          Good: the meatball sub is my own personal heaven

          Hope this helps.

            Yeah, Dagwoods is great for their salads, esp. the famous avocado. Their pastas are pretty bad but their Calzones are great.

            Classic Pizza is good too....BBQ chicken Sandwhich is good. They have a great dish which is the Cilantro Chicken pasta. They are also related to Cicero's.

            I often get delivery from Izzy's Deli...just their burgers or tuna melt though...rest of the menu is bleh.

            1. re: Xericx

              God, Izzy's is horrible... is Fromin's still open on 18th or 19th and Wilshire?

          2. Thanks everyone. Went for Classic Pizza. Sausage and peppers sandwich. Asked for no red sauce. They forgot that request. The bread was maybe a little too welldone on the outside for my taste, and maybe not crispy enough. Maybe a little too chewie. The peppers and onions were quite good. The sausage was good too. Sometimes places overcook the sausage. This wasn't the case.

            Thanks, all.
