never been (that will change this weekend) but a coworker has been raving about it all week, apparently their cheese roll pastry is the greatest thing ever. 4.5 average rating on Yelp too.

Welcome to Summer 08. That place ain't "Fredo's" any more than the Mexican place on Colorado and Arroyo is Moose McGillycuddy's.

Classic establishment but I still go old school and go straight to the source at Fosselman's on Main.

Welcome to 1988. Been going there a long-ass time time for their...everything...to take to family events. Used to hit it up to sneak in snacks before seeing a show at the Centre Theatre. DO NOT GO ON THE WEEKENDS, it's a complete clusterfucking zoo. I would have recommended it to you a while ago but I figured it wasn't your "color."

Holy crap Porto's is great. where the fuck have I been? Have driven by it for 20 years and only now am discovering it's awesomeness???

on first visit had:
-steak torta sandwich, a perfect sandwich. The cuban flat bread they use is awesome and the steak slices are super tender and cooked at a good medium. the plaintain chips it comes with are good, sort of flavorless but a nice bitty to munch on. One sandwich is big enough for 2 to share if you are normal size eaters.

-potato balls. awesome. like having a bite sized shepherds pie (well maybe 3 or 4 bitefulls as each ball is pretty big). the meat filling is just great

-cheese rolls. what everyone comes here for and with good reason. the best cheese danish I've ever had

-chocolate cupcake. again, just awesome and moist. great flavor.

-guava danish. All of their danishes look amazing, will have to try them all

-meat pie. the seasoned ground beef in a flaky pastry. Again, awesome. Only .70 ea, can that be for real???

Prices are cheap, I got 2 steak tortas, 9 potato balls, 12 cheese rolls, cupcake, danish, meat pie, 2 drinks for $36

What are you in the mood for, what kind of budget? Between Get Smart and I, I think we've been to or know of every single joint in that area worth knowing.

AMC closed a few years ago. It's all Laemmle's and it's for the better. Mann's ok but $$$ IMO.

Cheap, fast eats (Under $10).

Cheap eats (under $12 lunch, $20 dinner). No particular ethnic cuisine favored.
