Take out near Culver City
My friends and I are watching TV shows on DVD once a week (now on Six Feet Under) and like to couple the occasion with dinner. What are some good suggestions for easy takeout (preferably some parking for a quick run-in-n-grab) in the Culver City area for dinner. Any suggestions? Open to all types of food.
Novecento's on Main Street. Call in the order. Go with a driver and have them circle the block till you come out with the goods.
Believe it or not, Albertson's on Venice has better fried chicken than most of the fried chicken places, including the one in the downtown Culver City area, Honey's Kettle Fried. Supposed to be a non-greasy way to cook. No so.
There's always In "n" Out Burger but I would always choose Fatburger over them.
Depends on where you live in Culver City, but the two best pizza places around, are The Coop on Exposition, and Julie's on Palms (they both deliver to parts of Culver City).
Versailles Cuban food, I guess, but it's completely overrated.
In which part of Culver City do you live?
Good Indian at Bharat Bazaar/Samosa House on Washington Blvd, a block west of the DMV. Parking is usually easy and the food is served from steam tables. You can do combos, entrees, or just go for the samosas that come in two sizes. If getting alot of these, then call ahead so they'll be ready when you get there. Also, the mango lassis are mighty fine...
Markie D's Taste of Philly has very good Philly steaks and hoagies, as well as great "criss-cut phries," and "battered curly phries." And yes, they do have Tastycakes. Park in back or on the adjacent sidestreet.
El Rincon Criollo on Sepulveda, about a long block south of Culver Blvd does good home-style Cuban. Their lechon and roasted chicken combo is probably the most popular dish. Metered parking usually available in front.
Victor Jr's on Washington, across the street from the east end of the Sony lot has been around forever. Italian-American blood courses through the veins of this place. They do pizza, sandwiches, salads, and pasta as well. Their takeout and delivery service is their mainstay. Closed on weekends - they make bank from the studio lot during the week. Park in Wells Fargo Bank parking lot across the street (at night).

Another strong rec for Victor Jr's. I've really enjoyed the meatball subs there, the Italian salad, and the eggplant parm. Their cheesesteak was good, though not up to Markie D's or Philly West, but my fault for ordering that in an Italian place. Pizzas at neighboring tables looked huge and amply topped. Service has always been very friendly and accommodating.
No doubt you will want to nosh also. Phone Katmandu Kitchen on Venice for several orders of Momos. These are like overstuffed dim sum--thin noodle outside, lots inside. They are not fussy about being microwaved a bit.
