While nobody ever accused Eagle Rock of being a dining mecca, this laidback 'hood offers enough variety to entice Angelenos who live west of Eagle Rock Boulevard. Insane burgers? Check. Gritty diners? Yep. Date-night destinations? Got 'em. From famed bakeries to legit bistros, The Rock offers a little bit of everything ... except maybe attitude. Best of all, chowing at Eagle Rock restaurants won't torpedo your budget.

A step up from Baja Fresh, this order-at-the-counter joint serves everything from tofu tacos and ahi burritos to carne asada fries and gut-busting combo plates. Don't miss the killer salsa bar--the habanero could quite possibly be lethal.
Head to the greasy spoon immortalized in "Reservoir Dogs" for hearty diner food like corned beef hash and biscuits and gravy. It's not exactly dirt cheap, but you probably won't need to eat again for the rest of the day.
Huge subs and fresh smoothies are reason enough to stop by, but daily specials like pulled pork on Wednesdays and the famed Pilgrim on Thursdays (think Thanksgiving on a bun) are two good reasons to make a special trip to Dave's.
More than a place to sip coffee while you surf the web, this cavernous cafe features an extensive menu with breakfast burritos, half-pound Angus burgers, sandwiches galore and a few dinner entrees. Bonus: beer and wine are served.
