The Corner Deli & Grill - Sepulveda and Santa Monica Blvd.

Anyone have any experience with this (got to be pretty new) place? The menu looks intriguing. And they deliver. Now supposedly it's in a gas station (if what I read is to be believed). So that seems pretty unique.

  1. I think it's been there for a while - pretty sure I've seen it since I was a undergrad. Never gave it much thought because of its location and never hearing anything about it, but looks could be deceiving?

    1. Per the website, been there is 2002. I definitely remember seeing it when I lived near there in the mid-2000's.

      Never been, but the (few) Google reviews seem quite decent:

      They even do catering (!). May try it this weekend.

      1. Gotta love how this dish is under AUTHENTIC MEXICAN FOOD
        Teriyaki Bowl (Chicken or Steak) . . . . . . . . . . . $6 .59 Steamed white rice, sliced charbroiled chicken breast or steak,
        broccoli, topped with teriyaki sauce.

          authentic mex, more like inauthentic japanese food.

            Bob, you have great attention to detail.

          2. I tried a club sandwich from there once and it was passable.

            yeah, i thought it was around for at least a half decade if not more.

            1. re: kevin

              I thought maybe it was newer because there was no mention of it in the LA CH database. And I don't mind a good chicken bowl once in a while. I really don't like the ones at Yoshinoya, so I might try the ones from this joint sooner, rather than later.

              1. re: Servorg

                And they did close down one of the local Yoshinoyas too, so even if you wanted that crap it wouldn't be available.

                But I have heard that the Yoshinoyas in Japan are a different animal altogether.

                Anyhow, you can give this deli a whirl, it's quite cheap at the very least.

                There was some cool cafe in the middle of a gas station that I heard about years ago. But for fuck's sake, I can't remember any other details. Don't do research you probably won't unearth anything.

                      Subaru just came out with a new car that made me think of you.


            2. Wow, i got a sandwich thee once in desperation...passable in an emergency...i had a slice turkey sandwich with a side of high octane dressing! yuk! not really sure why anyone would actually buy food there voluntarily.
