Delivering the Goods: Tony's Mexican Grill

So here I am sitting at home on a Friday night: yeah, I know, weep weep I have no life. I have to work a long day tomorrow (in addition to my normal Monday through Friday grind), so in all truth I am more than excited about the prospect of a night hanging out on the couch with my boyfriend and some take-out.

But what to order? We are recent transplants to the apparently menu-less North Hollywood corridor. There have been no helpful delivery menus deposited in our mailbox since we arrived, and we have only just begun to explore the various local establishments, so we are pretty much in the dark when it comes to reliable "don't wanna cook tonight and don't wanna heat up frozen stuff" dinners. It's not going to really feel like home here until we've got a stack of Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Lebanese, Indian, Thai, and pizza menus at the ready for our dining delectation. But thanks to an insider tip, help was soon on the way in the form of Tony's Mexican Grill (oh, and FYI? the restaurant website is the new take-out menu!!).

I deliberated over whether or not to go the take-out route: it's Friday night, and this popular Sherman Oaks establishment is almost three miles away from our place. But the goods on display looked so gosh darn good I had to take the chance. As luck would have it, I got them on the phone right away. One chile relleno combo platter, one steak burrito, and one cheese-ortega chile quesadilla was soon on its way to my most comfy abode, where the beer flows like wine and the wine only comes in gallon jugs.
