Best Shop for Service?

So i'm not the greatest wrench on my bike and was wondering if anyone is partial to a particular shop for their service. I'm located in the valley (Burbank/Glendale) area. I'm not partial to any particular shop as i haven't needed any service yet but want to have a shop to go to when that time comes. Someone that does good work and charges reasonable prices. Bought my bike from competitive cyclist so i don't have any affiliation with any shop since i purchased online. I'm trying to learn how to work on my bike as i go along but i also don't have the tools to do everything. Any recommendations? Thanks.

I'm really fond of Budget Pro Bicycles in Eagle Rock. Oscar has always gone above and beyond when it comes to bike repair.

Been to a lot of bike shops in my life. The best, for knowledge and friendliness, is Velo Pasadena. Hrach is the owner and is a great guy. His mechanics all do great work. His shop is not the cheapest around but it is worth every penny. I found his shop by luck as I was searching So Cal for a certified Campy repair/service shop. That was about six years ago. He's had all my business since.

Thanks for the recommendations so far. Velo Studio is actually really close to me, it's Velo Pasadena's little brother. I'll look into Budget Pro as well.
