Shake Shack
Shake Shack is across from the Americana, in the new building that just went up on the corner of Brand and Colorado. There's usually quite a line for lunch, but it moves surprisingly fast - the employees bring out free samples, menus, and we even saw them bringing out cups of water on a hot day. The menu is not as simple as In-N-Out, but it's still not a crazy amount - just really well-curated items that fit with the theme. I had a regular burger and cheese fries, waiting about 5-10 minutes. Everything was excellent - very tasty and filling! Burgers are a little on the greasy side, but in a flavorful way, not a gross way. They do serve other items than burgers - hot dogs, mushroom burger, shakes and desserts, beer and wine. The parking situation isn't great - you can hit the Americana lot or the one behind the shopping area that is a block north of the restaurant. Seating inside and outside is tough to get when busy, but doable!

Fish Time
Overall, the food here was reasonably priced. Service was friendly but a bit slow. Interior was nice and clean.I got the California Poke salad which came with tuna and salmon cubes (generous amount of fish), edamame, imitation crab meat, avocado, mixed greens, a little bit of cucumber, tomatoes, dried seaweed and ginger sauce. The ingredients were fresh and the taste was expected. I had to ask for wasabi to make it more flavorful. Kind of wishing that they would have more sauce and topping options.My friend ordered the Beer Battered Fish n Chips which came with 3 big pieces of fried fish, a side of coleslaw and some potato fries. The fried fish had good texture, but both my friend and I thought it was a bit oily. I did not try the coleslaw, but the fries were pretty good.

The Cheesecake Factory
Nice ambiance in a great location in the Americana. The food is just as you expect anytime you go to a Cheesecake Factory. Large portions, good flavor, but it's a chain restaurant and it sure tastes like one. I had the Renee's lunch special (soup, salad, sandwich) and was a bit disappointed in my sandwich. The chicken salad was overly mayonnaise'd and the soup of the day (wild mushroom) was quite salty. The great thing about the restaurant is its huge menu, so good for a large group who can't decide what they want to eat. The cheesecakes are delicious, but I opted out this time. But, try one of my favorites, the red velvet cheesecake.Parking is easy within the Americana shopping plaza (structure with free hour, or more with validation).

Best Shawarma
The food is AMAZING!!!I have been a customer here for about 4 months now. I come here at least twice a week for lunch. So far I've used them for many 3 our corporate catering orders where we had up to 60 people. They've always been consistent with on time delivery, the amount and the quality of the food. Every one of our employees loved the food. We look forward to our next event to have them cater again. I just don't get how they can provide such quality food in the amount that they do at the price that they charge. We've tried the $9 per person catering and the $12 per person catering. They were both amazing. I recommend the $12 per person catering menu because there's so much good stuff that comes with it. My all-time favorite is the Lula.

Passed by this newly opened spot on Brand and decided to give it a try. It's a small and clean place. I never had rice balls before and turned out not my type of food. But what made me not very happy about this place was not the food but the service. The server recommended me order 3 rice balls which is the rice ball combo 1 that is supposed to come with pickled ginger and edamame (written on the menu), but what I got was only 3 rice balls. Not that I care about pickled ginger and edamame (i may not even eat them) and I didn't even ask why they are missing, but it gives me a not-trust-worthy feeling. So, be sure to specifically tell the server you want the rice ball combo 1 not just pick 3 rice balls.

I was brought here by my coworker. This place was tiny, family owned and smiling face on the owner- good signs!We tried the pork, chicken and lamb plates. I liked the chicken one the most because flavor was rich and meat texture was tender. Lamb was cooked perfectly too, But I found it a bit lack of flavors. Pork had the least flavor and not as tender as the other two dishes due to the thickness of meat I think. Did I mention the appetizer bread tasted great with the dipping sauce plus their house made garlic spread? You must not miss it.Though the place is small, it's a great one for Mediterranean food / takeouts. Owner was very friendly and talkative!

The Wooden Fork
Had lunch here with a former co-worker based on several recommendations from folks in the office. It’s a pretty popular spot and gets pretty busy since it’s not spacious enough to handle the crowd... so get there before the lunch rush if you want a table. The decor itself is nice... felt like I was having lunch in a shabby chic meets Pottery Barn space. The food's good, priced reasonably and the service really depends on how busy they are. It's worth checking out, but for me, I can't really see myself really wanting to go here with all the choices available on Brand Blvd.

The food is unbelievable here delicious chunks of juicy chicken and with a really tasty garlic sauce mixed with hummus was my favorite. All the food sits on top of a plate of rice which soaks in the great flavors of the freshly cooked meat. The location is a bit small but definitely does not take from the quality of the food , the owners are so welcoming and friendly they actually sit w/ you and run through the menu in detail if you have questions. Limited street parking ,Cash only location and good idea to call in order before.

Vegas Seafood Buffet
Decent seafood buffet. Their sushi section is just OK, doesn't always taste the freshest, but understand this is a buffet-style--you won't always get the best pieces of meat/fish. However, I always hit the Mongolian BBQ section, I like selecting my own amount of meat/fish and veggies and the guys do a pretty good job of cooking everything. They have a pretty good dessert selection though. It's a good place to go when you have a large party trying to find a decent/quick spot for lunch.

Raffi's Place
Came here with a whole bunch of people and ordered food family style to share. We pet much had everything on the menu and I looked the eggplant appetizer (it was like a eggplant mash with some seasoning and topped with fried onions I believe) and the kebobs the best. The chicken was pretty good but the chicken wings were tiny so I would avoid that. The restaurant is pretty much open air and you are eating either under an umbrella or under the awning. Overall good experience.

Just a moment...
