South Bay Restaurants: What are the best bets?
I got Mexican covered (unless you wanna pipe in on that as well).
I want some options on other stuff though, specifically what I have listed below.
I will be in and out of town quite a bit in the near future as we had a tragic death in my family and I need to come back and forth to help my family.
That said, I'll need to have options to feed myself and/or take people out when we don't have time to cook and don't want to look uninformed. That's where you guys come in!
Seafood? I like Bluewater Grill in Redondo and Kincaids on the pier? Anywhere else?
I am wondering where the best burgers are these days BESIDES In N Out or Fatburger in South Bay area?
Pizza? I used to hit up a place called Borrelli's on PV Blvd across from Texas Loosey's and another in Hermosa on PCH whose name escapes me now.
Mexican? I grew up on LBJ's on PCH and I know Rosa's is solid in Hermosa.
I really appreciate your input. I gotta at least take care of my nutrition. Thanks in advance!

best pizza hands down in south bay is fresh brothers (Fresh Brothers | Pizza, Wings Salads : Est. 1985).
they have a store in manhattan and in redondo.
love rajun cajun, both on pier ave as well as on PCH in redondo (take out store).
i've always been partial to Charlie and Cialuzzis on PCH for italian - best marinated chicken breast ever. Coyote cantina in the same lot is very good (their tequila selection is awesome). Both are next to the king harbor sign.

Thanks for the input so far folks!
Ah, so Pasisanos in Hermosa near Pier Ave is still a hit huh?
Anyone hit Snax on Sepulveda or Y'Not Burgers on Hawthorne in Torrance? Are they still good?
I remember Snax on Artesia in Redondo used to legit when I was little.
