Good hole-in-the-walls in Reseda/Northridge area?

I'm scouting out all of the good (fairly cheap) non-corporate places to eat around the valley, particularly around the Reseda/Northridge area which is where I live. I've found places like Kings, Homeplate Burgers, Cupids, Daglas, Holiday Burger, Cavarretta's and some others. Any good recommendations?

  1. iF YOU CAN MAKE IT TO Chatsworth, there is a heavenly...family owned Southern cooking place that has wonderful fried chicken; in fact, everything is wonderful!
    Just wish I could remember the name--but, if you get to Topanga Canyon Blvd...turn right and it's about two blocks on your right.
    Also, a very good Mexican restaurant in the same block (or blocks).

    1. The southern restaurant is Les Sisters and it is on Devonshire west of de Soto. I love their food. Lunch is a total bargain. My favorites include smothered pork chops(so good!) fried crawfish (fantastic and a very large portion) and their unsweetened lemonade. I believe the other restaurant that Shari2005 is talking about is Los Toros. I love their mexican food too and the free bean dip and chips are addicting. Brents Deli is off of Parthenia and Corbin and I think it's the best deli around. If you like all you can eat asian food you might want to check out L.A. Buffet. They have sushi and a mongolian BBQ and its very inexpensive for lunch.

      1. That homemade tofu place near Sherman Way and Reseda...help me out guys....REALLY good vegetarian Vietnamese.

            YUM! You bet, its Vinh Loi and sooooo good.

        1. I'll second the rec for Les Sisters. Also nearby is Woodlands for some great South Indian vegetarian.

          My favorite Vietnamese joint is Pho So 1 there in Reseda (is this the one you're thinking of, running_pig?).

          Dos Arbolitos is a great Mexican place on Woodley in North Hills.

          1. Thanks, I gotta check them out. How about good Mediterranean (not sure if that's the right country) with good pita bread and hummus? I work in North Hollywood and pass by a lot of places that look really good, but haven't tried them out.

              Falafel Palace or Pita Pocket; both on Reseda Blvd, both family run, both are most excellent. If you're looking for falafel in particular, I would recommend The Palace. If you're looking for shawarma, Pita Pocket is quite good; plus they make a laffa in house that is to die for.
