Foods to bring home and watch the game

Any ideas on foods to bring home and munch on during the game? Only real parameter I have is travel time should not compromise the quality of the food. I have done Kyochon, Roma, Bludsos, and Portos to death and looking for some ideas. Any part of LA is game, But anything west of SaMo or North of North Hollywood is pushing it.
Maybe hit up Bay Cities, grab a few subs and a few dozen of their spicey (almost) though not quite buffalo wings and call it a fucking day.
Otherwise, Roma sounds great. And I do really like Rosario.
He's a dope guy.
Phillip's BBQ (instead of Bludso's).
Pollo a la Brasa on Western for a few whole roast chicken and some anticuchos. And their fries ain't half bad.
For some reason, only fast-food-y type joints like these come to mind. Maybe it's because it's what I really like to consume while watching games.
We ordered Bay Cities for our daughter's 1st birthday this month, and the huge take-out subs were a hit. They make them just 30 minutes before the pick up time you request, so they're fresh, though I'd recommend getting all the wet additions (vinegar, peppers, etc) packed on the side so that the bread doesn't get soggy. And the price seems very fair, considering they feed at least 7 people, I'd say. I'm planning on going back for any small party food needs from now on.
under other circumstances i might have suggested an order of dongbei style cumin chicken bones from shen yang and a six pack of beer but i heard rumors of a change in the kitchen and the cumin chicken bones i've had there since were not satisfying.
You can get a ton of oversized california rolls for a great price at Yama Seafood in San Gabriel...gotta call ahead to order. Yama also does sushi and sashimi at a very reasonable price; I think i had an 8 piece salmon, 8 piece yellowtail, and 8 piece something else (all nigiri) a few months ago and it was about $36. The slices were considerably larger than his pre-packaged sushi which are also pretty good.
