Fav. mediocre eats (inspired by bianca pizza thread)

Ok so the "Casa Bianca Eagle Rock - Best Pizza Ever" thread inspired this topic.
Amused by the love and dislike for the Casa got me thinking about other places that some people really like and others would not set foot in.

I am not crazy about Casa Bianca's pizza but it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy due to it's old school vibe and chow it down no prob., reminds me of my very mexican parents taking me out for "pizza and italian" food to a very similar place in burbank by burbank high.
So let's hear what your favorite "mediocre spot" that gets the hounders in a flurry.

Not in any order just a few that pop to mind.

1. Tally Rand in burbank only in the bar downstairs
2. Smoke House also in burbank (mmm martini / salad blech)
3. Damons ( love a mai tai in the middle of a hot day)
3.Palermos (beflore flames burst I know it's horrid )
4.El Chavo (until yesterday dim the lights in the day loved how dark it used to be inside)
5 Hard Times ( sometimes I crave the sub sandwich)

Let the flood gates open
