Late Night Dining Waikik

We are arriving at Honolulu airport at 11PM on Thursday, December 13, we are renting a car and heading into Waikik for the evening....3 of us are coming from Los Angeles and the 4th from Ohio. I have to imagine we will be hungry. Any suggestions on where we should eat a very late dinner?

Westlake Village: Taco Truck Recommend

Try Taqueria El Tapatio 818-426-2508
They are in Woodland Hills but bring the taco catering out to Santa Clarita so I think they would bring it to Westlake, too.
They are EXCELLENT. Tacos and ALL the fixings for $8 per person--including servers and papergoods!!

ted's montana grill - moved from New England board

I frequent the TED'S in Colorado Springs (my son is in school there) and absolutly love it. The food is excellent, the service is great and I am now a bison convert. They will bring you a sample of bison if you would like, before ordering and they bring yummy half-sours and rolls to the table too.

Trader Joe's meals more-or-less ready to go?

A favorite meal at my house is TJ's Orange Chicken, TJ's Bird Nests and white rice (made in the rice cooker).

Best Carrot Cake in the OC (Orange County)?

Stonefire with branches in Irvine and Fountain Valley is wonderful. It is baked fresh daily from a old family recipe.

Canyon Country?

I live in Canyon Country and can recommend...
Athena's (excellent greek food)
Pho Ng (yummy and inexpensive Pho bowls)
Love Sushi (decent sushi)
Chi-Chi's Pizza (part of the small Los Angeles area chain)
Picolla Tratorria (delish, italian food--reservations often needed)

I saw Little Toni's on Lankershim and was wondering..

The place was shut down following a fire but has been rebuilt and reopened by the same, original owners. It is excellent old school italian and a nice place for families. Go and enjoy!!

Pizzeria Mozza--Reservations a must?

A group of 10 want to have an early dinner (6:30PM) at Pizzeria Mozza next Friday, January 30th--if we dont have reservations should we just pick somewhere else?

What fast food do you eat rarely, but that first bite think "Wow, this is so good!"

Jack in the Box TACO--2 for 99cents---is yummy!!

Jersey Mike's -- Yays, Nays, and Best Subs

Order any cold sandwich 'Mike's Way" and you won't be disappointed.

Best dinner salad, PERIOD?

The best salads, hands down, are at Stonefire Grill (West Hills, Chatsworth, Valencia and Orange County). They have many to choose from and even the small is more than enough for one person.
