Nat's Early Bite Lunch in Van Nuys

I've had luck with all their breakfast options. Would it still hold out if I strayed into lunch?

  1. no. Stick to breakfast

    1. Last time I ate breakfast there it was wonderful. I hope they still serve FRESH orange juice. I also really liked the hamburgers, they are served on whole wheat buns (not my choice) unless you ask for white buns. A few times, many years ago, they had a dinner entree that was amazing. It was chicken breast with pecan coating and served in a whiskey orange sauce. It was one of the best meals I'd ever had, including my forays into fine dining establishments.

      1. Actually I like some of their lunch items. They do a credible BLT. And a decent tuna salad, they don't goop up the tuna or add a bunch of stuff to it. Even their club sandwich is ok. Plus you get your choice of sides and one of them is pickled beets which makes me happy. How many places serve pickled beets as a side?

          1. re: Diana

            Occasionally, I get this unnatural craving for a cheap spaghetti dinner with a green salad with oil-and-vinegar dressing served in old-style cruets. Nat's delivers this each and every time...

            Although their breakfasts are worth waiting for (incredible!), their lunch and dinner's aren't too shabby, either. Not the same as the breakfasts, but great in their own homey, neighborhood-y way.

            Say "Hi" to the blonde waitress with the tat's for me!
