We always get the Teriyaki bowl. There is always lots of meat on the rice and tasty sauce. I get extra veggies added and add extra sauce. We usually get take-out and bring it home.

This place is hit or miss. I've gone a few times and the meat has tasted old. I complained to Owner and he didn't care. I have gone back because we are limited to our Teriyaki places in La Crescenta.

I love Yaki's! They have a very interesting menu and very tasty fast food. You can sit down or take food to go- always pleasant to be there!

Ask for some bull dogs if you want a great deal! Not a high brow place, but a local eatery. The burgers are good, bull dogs are great, can't ask much more from a road side burger joint in the town. On a side note, this was a high school staple. Loved yaki's back in the day, it was the... More

Yaki's has quietly been doing steady business in La Crescenta for as long as I've lived in the area, 20+ years. No eatery makes it that long without being better than good. I've never been fond of their teriyaki bowls, so let's talk about their burgers. Give me a bacon avocado cheeseburger and fries please!!!! Fresh, tasty, and inexpensive (I... More

Yaki's has been in Montrose for quite some time. The food is flavorful and good with lots of variety. Be aware that the sizes of bowl are based around more meat and vegetables not the actual size of the bowl. Also there is no small drink only medium, large, and extra large so order what you want.

It is un-appetizing to constantly see a massive bowl of rice topped with meat or chicken that is saturated in terriyaki sauce.

The yako cheeseburger is the best. I would do anything for it. Not a big variety of drinks though.
