I've tried Alondra's Hot Wings, was impressed with the selection of sauces. But there standard sauce is o.k. almost on pare with the Hot Wings Cafe in Pasadena.
Although I did go back and tried there Suicide, it tasted like bottled Capsciacin. All pain and no taste! Which is too bad, I really miss the original Hot Wings Cafe Suicide sauce. I just don't think anybody makes there own sauce anymore.
The H Salt shop is one of the last independent shops areound. I've been going there since I was a kid! The owner is a good guy.
What's good at Pollo A La Brasa? Is it right next to Gardunos? Whittier and 21st right?
For good food and low price I got some ideas. I like the Special Quesadillas at J&S(pastrami + cheese + salsa). They are just the right size because they leave room for a quart of Broguiere's Chocolate Milk in old-time glass bottles --located about five min. from J&S just over the hill. Also, on the way to Broguiere's is Tonys for a very good sub at a great price that you might try. Both J&S and Tony's have seating.

Taco Village on Beverly Bl for carne asada tacos and burritos and their excellent fresh salsa bar. Their carne asada is nicely lean and not gristley.
J&S is greasy fun (hard shell tacos and bean burritos are good), but works best if it is 2 AM and you need to soak up your drinks after a night of clubbing :)
