I love trying random hole-in-the-wall restaurants.  They can be quite pleasantly surprising, like El Pollo Nortenito.  I was on a mission to find this Creole restaurant that I has just bought a restaurant.com coupon for and when I got to the location the restaurant was actually out of business!!  I was bummed as hell, but low and behold across the street there was smoke coming from a bbq and something told me to check it out.  Well, I’m sooo happy I did because the food was UH-mazing!  They have combination plates of chicken and beef and delicious homemade salsa, at very affordable prices.  Even though it’s a bit out of the way, located in the heart of Van Nuys, I would still drive out there JUST to have this again.
