And the Nominees Are: Vote for Takeout in East County

As part of Patch's Readers' Choice 2012, we asked for your nominations for the Best Takeout in La Mesa, Lemon Grove and Santee. Now's your chance to vote.

Admit it. You don't always cook dinner for the family. Sometimes you run out to pick up Mexican or Thai food for dinner with friends on a Friday night or pizza or subs for the offices during lunch.

Though Patch readers only told us one of your favorites from East County during the nomination period, you can vote for others by mentioning them in the comments section — to help us determine the local favorite.

The deadline to vote is Friday, Aug. 17. Votes for "other" must be accompanied by a specification in the comments section in order to count. Here are the nominations:

Los Amigos Mexican Food, 10251 Mast. This little 'mom and pop' is the absolute BEST Mexican food in town, and believe me, I've tried them ALL. They accept call in's and it's always ready in 10 minutes.

We used to go there weekly until we got something in our schwerma that tasted and had the same consistency of beef liver. OMG gross out! When we asked about it, we got the "no speaka da English" bit. We're done there.
