What are your favorite dives and cheap eats WORTH THE DRIVE?

brandygirl | Mar 24, 2011 02:26 PM

I have some time on my hands and want to revisit favorite oldies and explore new cheap eats in and around L.A. I've already checked past Chowhound posts and have come up with the following list:

MEXICAN: Tacos Por Favor, Tito's Taco's, Yucca's, Babita's, Lares, Monte Alban
DONUTS: Primo, Donut Man
ICE CREAM: Fosselman's
PIZZA: Tomato Pie, Masa's (Chicago pizza)
BURGERS: Apple Pan, Umami Burger, Billy's Grill
ASIAN: Jitlada
DELI: Langers
PUBS: Ye Olde King's Head, Lucky Baldwin
ROAST CHICKEN: Rustic Canyon (thanks, exilekiss), Versailles

So, what do you think? Any additions you would suggest? Any places I should remove from the list? Please keep in mind I'm looking for places good enough that it's worth taking the time to drive.
