Any good family friendly restaurants in Glendale?

  1. I think Polka would qualify. Small Polish restaurant in a strip mall, very good comfort food, reasonable, family owned.
    There are people on this board who like Elena's Greek Kitchen. (I think that's the name)
    I haven't had good luck there, but have been in a long time. Others say the food is good and reasonable.

        Re Corousel: family yes, friendly can be, good not really.
        Raffi's place would be my choice for Middle Eastern.

        Anything specific you are looking for?

      2. Max’s Restaurant of Manila
        313 W Broadway (across the street from the Galleria)
        (818) 637-7751

        Great fried chicken and other Filipino favorites.

        1. La Cabinita for Mexican, and Zeke's for BBQ - both in Montrose. Skaf's for Lebanese.
