I'm flying into LAX next Friday, and I'm looking for somewhere *not* frou-frou to show up and have a solid meal at 8:30pm on a Friday night before driving out of town (heading east to Barstow).
Ideally I was thinking no more than $20pp and somewhere pretty straightforward to find; I have a car but do not want to spend all night driving. (Also, is traffic still an issue this late?) No preference when it comes to ethnicity, but maybe if possible not Asian because I'm feeling it's a little overdone at the moment. But, if you have a cant-miss-it suggestion, thats ok too!
I also may be end up spending some time in L.A. on the way back to LAX, so some restaurant recs that may be special or out of the way (but not over $30pp please) are certainly welcome. Especially if it's for lunch.
Thanks so much
