I drive from Westwood to the SFV for golf often. I'm not very familiar with the Valley at all. So far I've found Philly's Best on Ventura Blvd. for a pretty good cheesesteak. A current thread has mentioned Firehouse on Victory at Reseda for good gyros -- I'm definitely going to check them out this week.
I'm interested in some of the best inexpensive fairly quick lunches I can grab in this area that will still get me back home easily via the 101/405. Particularly interested in a good Chinese combo lunch -- and please mention which dishes are best (I like spicy). A great burger, with really good fries or onion rings? A good sandwich place? Thai? Please let me know where to go to celebrate a good round or drown my sorrows with good food after a disappointing one.
