The Best Take Out Windows (ie Top Round & Horse Theif)

I had mentioned in another post and those who had to listen to me drone at the chow meet up, now that P and I have a real house, we are fostering puppies. This current puppy is a Shepusky. So she's a little shy (shep). Very stubborn. (usky) She's new to the whole leash thing and not sure if she likes it yet, but LOVES riding the car. So for her first restaurant we went to Horse Theif. It was very easy, she didn't get too overwhelmed and she learned how to climb in and out of the car like a little lady. *whew!*

So we don't think she's quite ready for patio dining yet but we'd still like to get the occasional good grub. So just like Horse Thief (our the other option was Top Round), we are looking for the best restauants with take out windows so we can order outside with her and eat outside. Puppy has safety harness so we will travel, where ever and bonus if they have "healthy" options!

      Ah yes, Cupids is decent. I've only been to the one in Northridge. They have others, right?

    2. Carnitas Michaocan, on the N/W corner of North Broadway at 19th, above Chinatown and before Lincoln Heights. Good carne asada, better al pastor (especially if fresh-sliced from the rotisserie spit), and my favorite salsa rona in SoCal -- brick-red, thin, spicy, smoky, complex, and hot. Tacos are tiny, burritos are big, and you can get cheese-fries with meat and jalapeƱos on top that are immense. Parking in the rear, order at one window, pick up at the other, and covered picnic-table eating area.

              One of my top five burgers in the city. Their cochinita pibil ain't too bad, either.

          2. Don't know if this is convenient to you but the new Oinkster might work and they claim to have a dog friendly patio.
