What foods do restaurants most frequently mess up?

I agree about the hashbrowns. Almost impossible to find them made from scratch, or, if they are, not too greasy.

Healthy Food Delivery Service (http://www.susanshealthygourmet.com/)

I use them every once in a while. Definitely do pick up, and even they do sometimes miss a delivery (I've had that happen twice).
The food is just OK, but it much, much better than Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers prepackaged diet meals.

What are your favorite, small local food chains?

Another vote for Casita Taco, although I think the one on Magnolia is better than the one on Lankershim.

How about Ca'del Sole near Universal? Right location, reasonably priced and always decent Italian food. They do have a private room.

What's Best At Porto's?

The line at Burbank moves pretty quickly. The MediaNoche sandwich, the potato balls, and the guava/cheese strudel are all wonderful.

There is no need to choose, but if I absolutely HAD to, it would be cake (and cats)

Best Ice Cream Shops in the US?

I agree! Mashti Malone's. I've only ever gone to the Hollywood location. Love the saffron/rose. They also make the best black cherry I've ever eaten.
