Vincenco's Pizza to Go Opening-Sherman Oaks?


For pizza in that area? Try Joe Peep's. Magnolia and Whitsett. The place itself is a hellhole but it's all takeout. Fabulous pizza and truly impressive mushrooms. Ample pepperoni.

Mexican in Sherman Oaks?

Thanks to all who weighed in on Casa Vega.

That said, what's the best Mex in Sherman Oaks? Where would you go for Mexican
in the S.O./Studio City axis? Gracias.

Casa Vega: Si or no?

Someone's taking us to dinner tomorrow (Wed.) night. We're thinking Casa Vega in Sherman Oaks.

Anyone familiar with it? Thumbs up? Down? Gracias.

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I've been away. Where the heck can a fella get a decent bagel in this burg? I have my complaints about this chain and that, but I want to see what you all say. Thanks.

Best Phillly Cheese Steak Ever?

Last year I was here asking about hoagies in Burbank. South Street had the only good one around, but even that fell off in quality the second time I went. Still, it's the place to start.

Now I'm in Studio City, and tried the hoagie at Pappagallo's, on Coldwater. Interesting. Good bread, great meats--just lousy fixings. So I bring it home and doctor it up. As I told my wife, "It's not great, but I can work with it."

Still looking for a great hoagie, if anyone has any suggestions.

Fine dining near LAX?

I know this has been asked and answered over the years, but I've been away for a while. Anyone know any good dinner places near LAX? Thanks.
