Alternate options include:

Big Town Hero
Laughing Planet
Hot Lips Pizza (They have cheese-less vegan pizza. It's pretty good.)

Several other places I am forgetting....

Always happy with Loco Locos, especially since I wasn't able to meet you guys there today.

I'm a maybe. Depends on how much work I have to do that day.

I'm a maybe. I do like Loco Locos, so I think I can handle that twice in one week.

For future reference, I like Big Town Hero, but that particular location tends to have Fox news or something like it on all the time- so I always get my food to go.

Another place I like to eat at sometimes is Park Avenue Cafe- but they get pretty busy around lunch, and seating is limited, so that would be better on a day where we weren't lunching right at noon.

Also in that direction is East Side sandwiches.

Oh, and Chipotle? That's a place too. I haven't eaten there in a while. I can't remember what kind of seating they have.

Whenever I stop into the Big Town Hero it's CNN. It wouldn't surprise me if it's occasionally Fox. I have a feeling we shouldn't discuss politics with the employees.

East Side Sandwiches is good, but cramped. And I suspect hanging around too long will result in dirty looks from both the staff and other patrons.

I always forget about Chipotle. We could try that one day.

I watch so little news, I honestly don't know what channel is what. But whatever it is that plays in Big Town Hero drains my brain cells away.

Any/all of the 24 hour 'news' channels are an overload after a minute or two.
When I do get sandwiches there it's a get in, get out ASAP experience.
