Good eats in Burbank near Warner Bros for lunch?

Starting a new job @WB on Monday looking for good eats that I can get in/out in an hour. The only place on my map is Porto's. Anybody got a recommendation for me?

  1. Definitely make a drive over to Vineland and Magnolia for Kansas City BBQ company

    Also, for great quick cheap thai on Magnolia and Cahuenga go to Amazing Thai Cuisine,

    You should have no problem getting to them eating and gettin back in an hour.
    thats all I can pretty much think of off the top of my head at the moment.

    Kansas City BBQ
    10863 Magnolia Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91601

    Amazing Thai Cuisine
    10604 Magnolia Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91601

    1. in case you are in the mood for quick, quality mexican takeout, head over to taco llama next to the car wash which is a block down from the Magnolia and Cahuenga intersection. And I second the Kansas City BBQ, amazing....

        I second Taco Llama. One of my favorites spots for al pastor style tacos and burritos.

        Monte Carlo on Magnolia... inexpensive and tasty Italian food with some great sandwiches.

        Poquito Mas and Philly's Best on Olive.

      2. Angelinos Pizza in North Hollywood
        The Casting Office --Bar Food on Lankershim
        Eclectic Cafe --North hollywood

        1. Many more, depending on your taste and budget:
          Viva Fresh at Riverside and Alameda - decent Mexican
          Smoke House at Barham and Forest Lawn (a little "spendy")
          The Club House at the two Griffith Park golf courses
          Arnie Morton's - REAL spendy
          The Mexican place at the strip mall with the Vons on Pass
          Hot Dog Show/Papoo's on Riverside
          Bob's Big Boy on Riverside

          Couple of others further west on Riverside, names escape me

          There are lots of places in the area, explore!

          1. In-and-out of Porto's in an hour is a real challenge most days.

            For a good burger, the tiny hole-in-the-wall cafe at the Annabelle Hotel, about a mile up Olive from WB (across from St. Finbar Church). The quesadilla is really good there, too.

              I go to Porto's pretty frequently, not nearly as bad as glendale. Quite bearable actually.
