taking a friend from pasadena to burbank airport
any recommendations on places I should try. I leave at 1 today. feeling like burgers or pizza, but all suggestions are welcome. thank you.
Porto's on Hollywood Way & Magnolia. Great pastry and Cuban-based sandwiches. It's always crowded and parking can be tough but it's worth it. The mango mousse is bliss.
My daughter tells me if Porto's is too hard to get into Urban Eats just down the street on Magnolia is also good. I trust her -- she's the person who turned us on to Portos.

hook burger bistro is very close to the airport and i think they make a great burger. apparently they are owned by the same folks who own the habit burger chain, but this one is a bit more upscale. you still order at the counter, but they have beer and wine. seems to me a burger is about $5-6, and the bun is housemade, the meat is flavorful and the service good. they have a trio of fries, onion rings and sweet potato fries that we really enjoyed. i'm not a frequent burger-eater, but i've really enjoyed our visits to this place.

Dino's Pizza Burbank (5 replies)
I've been meaning to try the lasagna pizza at Dino's Pizza for a while now.
Personally I have a soft spot for Chili John's (2 miles from BUR), which serves Wisconsin-style chili, but it's a little pricy and not universally loved.

to each their own. there really isnt any decent pizza in the area. i like little toni's, but thats n. hollywood, and i'm sure a lot of people think about their pizza the way i do about dinos.
if you hit them right, when the pie is properly baked -- the crust can often be a tad undercooked -- i think theirs is the best anywhere near the area.
strongly flavored, kinda oily in a good way and a nice thin crunch/chew.
