Cheap Eats Food Tour--What Am I Missing?

f
film_score Dec 19, 2013 10:29 PM

So my brother and I (who actually grew up in Florida, but have rarely made it back in the last 15-20 years) are gonna be in Hollywood for 2 weeks. We love trying all sorts of Cheap Eats, preferably really unique or distinctive items, but also just the best of a given genre (e.g., pizza, subs).

I went through all of the assorted posts on this board and below is the list I've accumulated (while it's centered in Hollywood, it can extend all the way down to Miami or all the way up to, say, Boca). Please tell me if you think I'm missing something or if you have an opinion on a place I already have.

I don't have an exact definition for Cheap Eats but it's generally gonna be less than $10; also, generally, it's not gonna be a sit-down place but it can be.

Thanks for your help!

          Yes to Joy's Roti House. You will probably have a long wait, but it's THE BEST roti I have ever eaten. And cheap. And giant. So fresh. Sub Center is good. I've been going since the 70's. don't eat there on the night shift - day time is best. Save room for a frozen custard from nextdoor!
