    Default Where should 4 Ohioans eat in LA on Thursday afternoon.

    Suggestions - anything really. We arrive LAX in the afternoon and will be hungry for something that isn't Applebees.

    Maybe something landmark, but good?

    Suggest away.

    Whenever I go to LA I have to hit The Whaler in Venice Beach. They have these bacon wrapped shrimp that are damn near orgasmic. In fact my girlfriends and I renamed them orgasmic shrimp. It is right on the beach, cute waitresses, good beer and a nice patio. And I don't think it is really that far from LAX if I remember my driving correctly. Isn't LAX on Sepulvida (sp?) somewhere between Redondo and Venice Beach?

    The shrimp are called Whaler Shrimp, they are served with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed vegis. So yummy. Allyjoy and I went back last time I was in LA and she agreed... Orgasmic.

    We're having this same conversation in the Questions for People of Los Angeles thread, and we are all suggesting Bay Cities Deli on Lincoln and Broadway in Santa Monica.

    You're all being silly.

    If you're going to be in Los Angeles, get Mexican food. It's pretty much the only fucking kind of food you're possibly going to pursue that's done significantly better in Southern California than anywhere else. Personally I like a joint called El Compadre's in Hollywood off Sunset. Other recommendations are bound to vary. But making your one meal in LA something else is just dumb.

    It is if you value chili cheese fries. I always just see waiting in line as part of the experience. But it's not always a good idea.

    You're absolutely right. I just reviewed a few sample menus. Looks delicious. I just find the name to be a bit repulsive.

    I don't get your point. What I'm saying is pretty much all food in LA except for Mexican is as bad or worse than whatever chain restaurants also exist in Ohio.
