lunch in Long Beach near Cal State?

I'm going to the theatre at Cal State Long Beach this Sunday afternoon. Any good lunch type spots around?

  1. Do you have any preferences as to type of food and also, do you have transportation for a short drive off campus? This will help us to direct you. As for w/in walking distance, just south of campus in the Ralph's shopping area you have Cha for Tea, L&L Hawaiian, Z Pizza, Pete's on the Beach, Togo's and Niko Niko Sushi. Many more places to choose from that aren't too far away.

    1. Enrique's for excellent Mexican.

      1. re: JAB

        I concur. Enriques is great

      2. the starling diner is unique, adorable and delicious. only open til 3:00 on sundays, can sometimes be sketchy service but breakfast bruschetta and bloody mary's are DELISH! really quaint spot on 3rd street in belmont heights

        1. I've got a car, so I'm free to leave the campus. I'm looking for good old fashioned American food ... not too far from the theatre. Thanks.

            There's a pretty good Philly cheesesteak place north on PCH. Near the traffic circle, can't be more than 3 miles. I forget the name, but it's very good.

            Otherwise, Hof's Hut for standard diner food.

              Are you thinking of Philly's Best?

          2. The Los Altos Hof's Hut would probably work for you. It's on Bellflower betwen the 405 Freeway and the University.

            They're a local chain that is okay. Be sure to save room for pie!
