Lunch Near Arrowhead Mall? (Glendale, AZ)

Can you recommend someplace for a casual lunch, dining solo, within five miles or so of Arrowhead Mall? I don't spend much time in that part of town but will find myself there tomorrow and need someplace for a casual lunch.

      Second Mi Cocina Mi Pais. and I recently tried Greek Wraps - very good gyro plate and falafel.

        Greek Wraps is really good. I wasn't too impressed with Pita Jungle.

    2. Third Mi Cocina, Mi Pais and second Greek Wraps - both are excellent. Not sure how much time you have, but they can sometimes be a bit slow during the lunch "rush". If you go to Greek Wraps, you must order a made-to-order wrap (not the pita).

      A few additional suggestions:
      - Pita Jungle
      - CGJ (Korean) - fantastic lunch specials - a full set meal for ~$5
      - Pho Avina (Vietnamese) - great banh mi for ~$3.50

        I love Pho Avina. I've heard great things about Greek Wraps from a trusted source but haven't been myself. It's on our to-do list.

          Andy, I LOVE Korean barbecue! Does chuhgajib have table-top grills? I looked at their website, but I didn't see a description or photos of the restaurant, just their menus.

              Fabulous. It's on my list for our next trip. Thanks for the heads-up!

        2. I ended up at Mi Cocina Mi Pais. I have been wanting to go for so long and never realized where it was. Thanks so much for giving me a reason to go; it was absolutely fantastic. The Lino Saltado was fantastic and reminded me of the Pollo Saltado that I used to eat at a Peruvian restaurant in Hermosa Beach, CA.

          Thanks never fail to come through!
