Choosing only 5 restaurants to recommend in Burbank is no easy task. Burbank offers a very wide array of amazing eats and experiences from Friday nights at Bob’s Big Boy on the Toluca Lake side of the city to Granville in Downtown Burbank and all the way up to the top of the hill at The Castaway, who’s view while dining cannot be beat. When it comes to food, I’m always in, but favorite places for me are more than just about the food. Atmosphere and customer service play a huge part in my choices for this list. Although those three places listed above would be on my honorable mention list, I’d love to share with you the five places I would recommend you give a try while visiting our beloved Burbank.

Flavor Of India – One of the amazing things about Southern California is the wide assortment of worldly flavors you can find within minutes. Burbank holds many locally owned restaurants with tastes from around the world in our small city and one of my favorites is Flavor Of India located in the heart of Downtown Burbank. I’ve never tasted a more rich, authentic flavor of Indian food, than I have at this place, and it’s right here in our city! The naan, tandoori, saag paneer and fresh made cilantro and cumin salad dressing are simply delicious. However, my absolute favorite dish is the Chicken Tikka Masala. The dishes at this restaurant are all original creations by two brothers who refuse to use artificial coloring or added preservatives in their recipes. They sport a fresh delicious buffet for lunch daily, but don’t be scared of the word buffet here, this is not your typical buffet. It’s all made fresh and in small batches for the best quality. The atmosphere in this place is very inviting and the customer service is also attentive. I highly recommend!

Momotaro – This family owned Japanese restaurant in Burbank is one of my kids’ favorite places to go. They have a very wide variety menu with sashimi, hand rolls and cut rolls. When it comes to sushi, whether you’re a pro or trying for the first time, it helps to have a place you can trust for the freshest options available. I’ve tried many in Burbank, but we keep going back to Momotaro again and again. Even if sushi is not your thing, give the Chicken or Steak Teriyaki a try, or the handful of other vegetarian or fully cooked options available. If you love sushi, try Momotaro in Burbank for the fresh, clean taste and pop in for their happy hour Monday-Friday 3:00pm-5:30pm. Although we love the food, my favorite thing about this restaurant is the customer service. It’s the kind of service that has us coming back over and over. I have rarely had to wait long for a table, the food comes fast and the staff is very helpful, especially when bringing three children in who want to learn how to use chopsticks.

Romancing The Bean – Don’t let the name of this cafe fool you into thinking it’s just another coffee house. Sitting right in the middle of our our beautiful Magnolia Park, Romancing The Bean’s quaint quarters offers a beautiful atmosphere, delicious dishes constructed by trained chef and owner Kerry Krull…and of course an amazing cup o’ joe. The top selling plate at this restaurant is the Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad, but my favorite would be the quiche and a side of one of the fresh ‘made daily’ soups! Currently there are three chefs crafting the menu at this romantic style eatery with menu changes every three months fitting perfectly into whatever season we’re currently in. They use only the freshest, organic and most locally grown ingredients they can find, only adding to my love for them. This community voted award winner is simply a must, while enjoying our town.

The Smokehouse – This historic dining experience simply is mandatory while staying in, playing in or driving through Burbank. Established in 1946, it sits next to the Warner Brothers Lot and serves as a favorite hangout for many people in the entertainment industry. Once frequented by the likes of Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby, The Smokehouse is best known in my circle of friends for its amazing garlic cheese bread, actually listed on their menu as ‘The World’s Greatest.’ The low lighting and chill atmosphere help draw you in to enjoy one of their many popular dishes ranging from Classic Salads, Chicken Picatta and Signature Steaks to Lobster Tail and Prime Rib. This restaurant has a lot of options to choose from. The menu is large and surely has something for everyone, but if you’re in a hurry, don’t waste your time. This dining experience is meant to be fully enjoyed while relaxed. If you can’t make it during the week, then try their Sunday Brunch!

Dino’s Pizza – You are reading this right. I am recommending a Pizza Place as probably my favorite eatery in our beautiful city. They do pizza right, but not just pizza. They create gourmet salads like the Classic Arugula, to pair, using only local greens and the freshest vegetables. The menu sports a basic Italian listing of options, but I’ll tell you, there’s nothing basic about it. The crust on a pizza makes it or breaks it and Dino’s has it mastered. They make the pizza sauce daily and it adds to what I think is the most delicious pizza in not just Burbank, but in all of Los Angeles. I would also recommend trying the spaghetti, any of the sandwiches and do not leave without ordering yourself garlic cheese bread.
