The actual best thing since sliced bread is sliced meat placed between sliced bread and then sliced in triangles and stuffed into a donut. Fill the meatless void in your life with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sandwiches, soups, salads, and breakfast fare at Junior’s on Westwood Boulevard.
Junior's, which earned a 2009 nod as a Top 7 Deli in L.A. by ABC7 News, has quelled ravenous appetites for more than 50 years with an extensive menu of delectable American eats. Sate hunger with eclectic players such as a hot pastrami sandwich ($13.95 for a whole) accompanied by two mini potato pancakes; blintzes ($10.25 for 2) ballooning with a heaping center of farmer's and cream cheese; or a kippered salmon platter ($17.95 for a small), sporting fresh fish flown in from New York. Creative snackers can also build their own burger utilizing options like fried egg, avacado, jalapeños, and six styles of bun. Morning-friendly eats such as french toast ($10.50 for 3 pieces) and matzo brie ($12.50) break fasts throughout the day, and seceding sweet teeth can be appeased with sugary treats like the baked egg custard ($4.25) from the deli's bakery or fruitful dessert selection.
In addition to delighting diners' stomachs, Junior's appeals to the rest of visitors' bodies by using only zero-trans-fat oils and top-quality ingredients for every order made in its kitchen. Settle intense midmeal debates about Vin Diesel's height using the diner's free WiFi (available at select times), or keep a score-seeking eye on the sports-friendly TV.
Founded in 1959 by Marvin Saul, whose two sons supervise a staff of more than 150 today, Junior’s cultivates a family-friendly atmosphere with a dedicated kids’ menu and complimentary balloons for youngsters on weekends. Classic breakfast fare—served all day—and house-made rye breads crowd Junior’s tabletops alongside platters of smoked fish flown in fresh from New York. Pastries and cookies tempt sweet teeth from behind glass cases, and chefs can also customize cakes for special occasions, such as birthdays and gingerbread housewarmings.
