Eateries Around Cal State Northridge?

Hey even though I've already spent a semester at CSUN, I'm not familiar with the eateries in the area. Usually it's because I have very little time between classes, so I usually pack a lunch, or eat at the on campus eateries. This semester I have a two hour break around noon, so I was wondering if anyone could recommend any good(and cheap) eats. Thanks!

  1. Michelline's Pita Pockets is pretty good. They have a number of sandwiches which come on freshly made bread. Lunch should be around $7, but I haven't been there in a while. :)

    It's on Reseda and Nordhoff, in the same parking lot as Baja Fresh and Von's.

    Here's a link from a few months ago that I think has some very good suggestions. :)

    1. Also for falafels and such near by is Falafel Palace a couple of blocks north of Nordhoff.

        I'll second Falafel Palace, I used to go there for lunch when I worked in Chatsworth back in the '90s.

      2. I like Top Thai for Kao Soi (noodles) and Mandarin Deli for Spicy Beef (Hand Cut) Noodle Soup and Scallion Pancakes, both on Reseda Blvd.

          Second Top Thai. Ravanelli's Pizza (on Reseda/Chase) and there is a Hot Wing Place that people have mentioned next door to it that I cannot recall the name of.

            Oh, how could I forget my fave - Cupid's? Right across the street fron CSUN on Lindley just south of Nordhoff. QTs Hot Dogs is pretty good - in the strip mall on the SE corner of Reseda/Parthenia. They have Gyros. There is also a Thai BBQ in there and a Subway. There is an Italian pizza place on the corner of Reseda and Rayen.

        2. Very good indian shops with food counters in the back on reseda right near campus. Also grab a few pre-made bites in the EE market (too bad the cafe closed)

            Diana, I would love to know where those indian places are. I can't believe I've missed them!

          2. I ate many a sandwich from My Hero in my CSUN days. It's on Plummer just east of Reseda and very close to campus.
