Pretty rarely does a just-opened resto offer delivery, but ROFL prides itself on being at your service all day long (with some of the friendliest people taking your order, too). The Short Rib Grilled Cheese is the gooey-est comfort food, and if you're feeling a real oink-out, complete your feast with the waffles, served with a dollop of Danish cream. (There's no way you won't have sweet dreams after that!).

Damiano Mr. Pizza
After being loyal customers for over eight years, our only complaint with this Fairfax place is that it doesn't have our credit card on file! We'll forgive, though, since we've made some late night calls in perhaps not the most sober state and may or may not have been asleep once the delivery boys arrived! The slices of heaven take sometimes longer than an hour to meet your mouth after ordering, but it's the greasiest, most authentic grub in town.

Star of India
Chicken Korma, Chicken Tikka, some Aloo Paratha, and you're good to go for dinner and lunch the next day! We're not sure how we feel about eating inside this dive-style joint (we've actually never dared set foot), but it's rich and delish on our couches!
