Beeps has been around for a long time at the corner of Woodley and Sherman Way in Van Nuys. It has inside and outside seating areas. You order at the counter and they call you when your food is ready. They have good patty melts, good fries, and great cheap and tasty lunch specials that change daily. My friend Jim loves the Philly steak sandwich and he's from Philly so he should know! The milkshakes are really good; they have a lot of different flavors and you can mix them too. The only bad thing about Beeps is they are SLOW. Even when no one is in there it takes 15 minutes or more for anything to be ready. It's a good idea to order ahead but even when you do the order usually isn't ready. For a 50's diner style super casual restaurant I'd rate them an 8.
Pros: good food, good prices
Cons: SUPER SLOW service, very limited parking
