We used to live right up the hill from Cheebo in Hollywood a number of years ago. It was my absolute go-to for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love it so much that if I’m not cycling on a weekend morning, I will drive the kids all the way across town for their fried bread, cheeburrito, chopped salad and pizza.
The LA Times reviewed Cheebo back in 2003 and I decided I had to check it out. The pizza sold by the foot is the big draw and you should definitely have it but it’s everything else that makes Cheebo worth coming back over and over.
For breakfast, the kids (and I) love the Chee-Begniers N Honey - and yes, that’s how they spell it on their menu so don’t give me any grief over it. For the rest of us, it’s otherwise known as fried bread and honey. These little pillows of fried dough come out steaming hot and make every bad thing that happened to you melt away. After you satiate your sweet tooth, move on to the Cheeborito. I go for the Original but add in Avocado. One Cheeborito is more than a normal person can handle without feeling like you’ll lose a full day to the “sleepies” after you’ve consumed this massive beast. I also love the Huevos Rancheros, classic SoCal breakfast.
If you’re headed to Cheebo for lunch, order the pizza and a Cheebo Chop. This is by far my favorite chop salad. They have a vegetarian version but I don’t understand the point of that. Get it with all the cheese and meat they will put in. It’s delish.
To make Cheebo even more interesting than the food is that once in awhile a relaxed, chilled out celebrity will be eating right next to you. It’s Hollywood so everyone’s cool like that.
