Where to Eat in City of Industry: The Best Restaurants and Bars

April 14, 2018 Kelli Reichel

City of Industry, or simply referred to as Industry, is an industrial suburb of Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley region of Los Angeles County, California. Home to over 2,500 businesses and 80,000 jobs, but only 219 residents according to the 2010 census (down from 777 residents in 2000), the city is almost entirely industrial. It was incorporated on June 18, 1957 to prevent surrounding cities from annexing industrial land for tax revenue.

Akasaka Restaurant

Reviewed By P G - Whittier, California

Like all the Yelpers say, Akasaka Sushi Restaurant has a legendary chirashi bowl that competes with, and sometimes better than those you can find in Japan. I've had some of the freshest fish and chirashi bowls at tsukiji market in Tokyo, and have to say that Akasaka makes a mean chirashi bowl that rivals the best chirashi bowls in the world. The freshness and presentation, along with the variety of raw seafood make this bowl one of the best I've ever had. While the quantity of sashimi and sushi is often never enough at most Japanese restaurants, $45 here will definitely leave you satisfied.

Delhi Palace Cuisine of India

Reviewed By Yen90033 - Los Angeles, California

First off, I've been a repetitive customer at this restaurant for their lunch buffet. The chai tea and gulab jamun itself is enough for me to come often, but when you add the rest of the food, it's a plus! Sure, most of their food is either chicken and veggies, shockingly they served goat recently, but I would say it's quality food. Everyone has bragged about their garlic naan, it's worth mentioning that it is quite good.
During these buffets, you literally have contact with the waiter twice. Once they seat you and twice they give you the check. Other than that, you're on your own. Another thing I love this place is that they don't hurry you. Sometimes they give you the check without asking but never once I've felt I'm being hurried to eat.
This place gets packed. I love coming in 30 min after opening so bring in that empty stomach and start chowing down on that great Indian food. Oooooh butter chicken.....

Cat & The Custard Cup

Reviewed By arturofranz - La Habra, California

We went to a Matinee at the Mark Taper in Los Angeles and rather that find some local place near by and later get stuck in traffic, we headed back to our neck of the woods. We love the Cat and Custard Cup and usually come for dinner.

This time, we came around 6 pm to the "The Cat" as we locals now seem to refer to it. We sat in the bar area between the main dining area above the sunken dining area, nice & cozy with limited seating.

We ordered our favorite but pricey cocktails: Cosmopolitan and Sazerac. Our appetizers followed with their excellent sweet glazed pork bellies & grilled green beans.

We had good time, drinks and food was great....Plan to be back for a repeat encore.

Phlight

Reviewed By semanticvision - Los Angeles, California

This is my neighborhood joint if I have visitors coming to town. While technically not 100% authentic experience of a real tapas restaurant vs. the ones in Spain, but the dishes are well executed and service has always been great. They have basic options for good wines and allow BYO wine with and without corkage pending on the day of the week. Highly recommend.

Fonda Don Chon Restaurant

Reviewed By Dleg4 - California

We love the food here. It's our go-to restaurant for Mexican food. However, if we don't feel like dining in a really noisy place, we go elsewhere. I think it's the acoustics of the place. Plus loud people, crashing dishes, screaming babies... We're not old, but sometimes it's so noisy, we can't even talk across the table. Maybe it would be better to sit in the extra eating area off main room. Or maybe take-out would be good too. At any rate, I've never been disappointed in the food.

The Donut Hole

Reviewed By Steve H - New Jersey

I'd always wanted to visit this place and was stoked to find myself finally in the area. Driving through the giant Donut Hole is pretty cool for all us donut lovers. It allows ya to see all the donuts as you make your way to the order window. Prices are good. I got apple fritter and donut for maybe $3-4. Couple a spots to park so you can take the obligatory photo of the place (ya gotta.) Donuts were great.

Lazy Dog cafe

Reviewed By onedeesse - La Verne, California

It's been awhile since I reviewed this restaurant. During this last visit, Lazy Dog has changed their menus layout and I noticed some items were gone or under a different location. The first time I reviewed this restaurant, this place was really busy during the lunch. I was really surprised it was not busy during lunch on a Tuesday during this latest visit.

While I ordered the same meal, the quality was still the same but the presentation was different. They used to bring it in a bowl and now they brought on a plate. Since it's been a while since I had been there, it appeared my meal was a bit smaller from the last time I was there for lunch.

The service was the same and I didn't have any problems with the server. I will visit again. I hope this place does not shut down for a lack of customers.

Reviewed By MandC0218 - Riverside, California

The Iced coffee and pastries at this location were just average. Its a large and busy location , so expect to wait in line to get your pastries and then wait a while to get your drinks. They have a great selection of dessert and breads. It also has indoor and outdoor seating options. Overall could be better on the quality and freshness. We recently just went to the one in Azusa and it was way better in this regard than this location.

In-N-Out Burger

At In-N-Out Burger, quality is everything. Stop by to enjoy our menu of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, french fries and shakes. In-N-Out makes fast food the old fashioned way.

Reviewed By John B - Toronto, Canada

In-N-Out Burger started in Baldwin Park, CA (a replica of the original outlet is just up the street) and today there's a large outlet located on the grounds of In-n-Out University. There's plenty of seating inside and out if you'd like to eat in and two lines for car traffic for the drive through window. In-N-Out is all about burgers. While I'm not a fan of their "secret" sauce I still find their burgers to be far better than other fast food chains and there's no better way to wash them down with one of their shakes. Do visit the website to find items on their secret menu.
