Your guide for takeout dinner and movie recommendations

Dinner and movies have always been an excellent choice for dates, family, or even on your own. Everyone loves that feeling of putting your plate down right in front of the television before a movie starts. So you have to ask yourself: what’s the film of the night and what’s for dinner? Don’t worry. We have some Netflix movie recommendations for your favorite genres and a few ideas for delivery and takeout restaurants for your fun night in front of the screen.

There’s no better way to have a movie night than with some pizza and wings! Heck, even for those who want a salad, are in luck. Order a pizza, lay back, and enjoy a movie and meal for the whole family!

Maybe you want something a little different for dinner. Get a kabob or a wrap – either way, you’ll be full of this light and delicious meal. No movie is the same, so your dinner should be just as exciting.

Doesn’t a samosa sound amazing right now? Follow that with some garlic naan bread and chat – and you have yourself a meal. Add this with a horror movie, and that’s a night you’ll enjoy. Everything on this menu looks good, so check it out!

Teriyaki House Grill

16900 Lakewood Blvd UNIT 203, Bellflower, CA 90706

We all know a beef and chicken bowl place. But once you try Teriyaki House, none of them will compare. Add their tomato to the mix, and you’ll have a bowl that will have you asking for more. Put the lid on your bowl when you’re watching an action film, so you don’t spill any!

La Farola Empanadas

151 N Tustin Ave, Tustin, CA 92780

I’ve had empanadas in Miami, and let me say – these are just as GOOD – and I don’t even need to fly all the way to Florida! Empanadas are a hit or miss food, and these hit so well you’ll want to come back twice in one week.
