What is the key difference between Jewish style and certified kosher restaurants?

Where do I find kosher restaurants near CSUN?
1. If the restaurant is open from Friday evening to Saturday evening (Sabbath observance), then you know it is not a certified Kosher restaurant.

2. Kosher restaurants only serve either meat or dairy, never together in the same restaurant. Many well known delicatessens such as Canter's, Jerry's, Juniors and Brent's are Jewish style restaurant. They serve ham, and mix meat with cheese dishes. Pita Pocket and Falafel Kosher Express are also not certified as a kosher establishment despite their 'Kosher' signage. Delicious Bakery is not kosher as well (Hint they are open on Saturdays, true restaurants always close for the Sabbath)
