Lunch Places in North Hollywood/Burbank/Universal Area

Henry | Feb 9, 200102:04 PM     4

Yes, sounds like a pathetic request. But work has me trapped in a land of Togos, CPK, and Baja Fresh. All of which has it's place -- I mean, there's a huge lunch industry out here. The lines at Poquito Mas, for instance, are insane. But I can't help thinking: there must be some good places here, places off the beaten path, places that aren't chain restaurants, places no one goes to (or at least, don't flock to like lemmings in droves). One such example: ATLAS Sausage makers on Burbank Bl. (between Lankershim and Cahuenga). Authentic German sausage makers -- they're even the ones who make the pepperoni for Wolfgang Puck's pizza (as well as some other sausages for Trader Joes). But they run a little lunch concession, lots of German deli items, and terrific homemade sausages. Not crowded. Authentic, and good -- that is, if German food's your kind of thing.

Now: there must be more out there. Any suggestions? Please? I'm hungry.
