Junkyard is located at 2585 Cochran St, Simi Valley, CA 93065
It was a day like any other until it wasn’t! I stopped by the Junkyard and entered a world that was perfectly unpredictable. The decor as you approach the restaurant is a miss mash of parts and signs to remind you to put your worries away and just enjoy life for a minute. Junkyard does a great job at transporting you to a different state of mind
With dining rooms still closed in Simi Valley I opted for a to-go order. The menu is available online or in a 3 ring binder handcrafted with artist handwritten menu pages. It takes you back to a simpler time when you just had to worry about getting to class on time.
The staff was attentive an friendly and offered up some recommendations. The menu embraces the spirit of Junkyard and the food is very much geared to be what it sets out to be no-nonsense comfort food.
So funny story I somehow thought the mac n cheese was going to be on top of my chili dog creating a chili dog of epic proportions. Both the chili dog and the mac me cheese tasted pretty great on their own. Could you comprehend a chili dog topped with mac n cheese?
The food didn’t try to be something it wasn’t. It was simply food that embraces being comfort food. There is nothing wrong with indulging in comfort food and enjoying food that has 1 mission. That mission is to be a satisfying bite of food.
I also heard the pizzas were possibly the best in Simi Valley. On this stop though there would have been no room in my belly.
Junkyard is a fun spot to just let life be simple again.
