NE hound on a mad dash through L.A. needs help

NYA Joe | Mar 14, 2008 08:38 AM

Hello Fellow Hounds in L.A.,
I'm going to L.A. the week after Easter Sunday, and I really need some advice. I'm looking for
"roadfood" or "dives, drive-ins, and diners" kinds of places on any route between LAX -->
Fullerton --> Irvine --> Pasadena --> LAX. Alas, I don't have time for a fancy meal or off-the-beaten-path restaurant. I just like to eat things I can't get in New England/NY. I've
been to L.A. perhaps 7-8 times and was married there (to a local gal). My favs so far, to
give you an idea: In&Out burger, El Pollo Loco, and Marie Callendar's strawberry pie (the best
pie I've ever had). This time, my only must-try is Jay Bee's BBQ. You get the idea that I don't
really know L.A.! Anyone willing to share your culinary wisdom? Thank you.
