Good eats in or around Hawthorne

Moving from Westside to Southbay. Looking for local dives to frequent, ambiance is not important and cheap would be preferable. Pho, carneceria, taco stand, ramen, burgers, pizza etc...

    Besides searching this board titles for LAX, South Bay or the city of your choice, here are a few starters:
    Pho: Pho Hoa and Huong Vi on Prairie, Pho Hong Long on Crenshaw, Saigon Dish on Hawthorne Blvd. Avoid the bizarrely named Thai Lai (two locations), a Chinese restaurant that serves mediocre Vietnamese.

    Salvadoran: Arcense on El Segundo, El Cerro Verde on Hawthorne Blvd.
