Need help in Northridge/Granada Hills

I have a friend coming in from Korea who I will be taking to dinner this Friday night. He'll be staying in the Northridge/Granada Hills area and neither he nor I have any clue what's good around there. He particularly loves American BBQ and Mexican food, but anything terrific and modestly priced will be much appreciated. Any suggestions?

  1. BBQ in Northridge:

    Grandpa Fred's BBQ-they only serve beef items, no pork, has moved to the Northridge area.

    Roger's Rib Shack is on Reseda, and has been open for about 6-8 months.

    Rosie's BBQ & Grillery is on Tampa, and will remind people of Tony Roma's.

    1. Lum-Ka-Naad on Reseda has really really good Thai food and the menu is quite large and varied - not the usual angel wings and pad thai kinda place. Their Northern and Southern Thai menu choices are what you want to focus on...

      8920 Reseda Blvd, Northridge, CA 91324

      1. Wood Ranch at the Northridge mall on Tampa and Plummer is great for BBQ.

        1. If you are willing to go to Reseda, Las Fuentes on Vanowen is moderately priced Mexican, but it does get crowded.

          1. A short trip to Ventura Blvd and Corbin in Tarzana has Sol y Luna, a nice mexican restuarant. I've heard Salsa and Beer is good. For BBQ, you can head to Sepulveda and Roscoe in Van Nuys for Dr. Hoggly Woggly's. I like the brisket and beans and macaroni salad.
