What’s your current favorite place to dine solo in LA < $100?

Bonus points for close proximity to the 5 or 405.

Is that pre-tax-gratuity-service-charge-parking-gas? Or post?

Adding to it…what percentage of tip are we talking about? 10%? 15%? 20% or more? All are important factors. :joy:

Budget of $99.99 (since OP says < $100) can range from $83 (10% tip) to $76 (20% tip)…roughly 25% difference which can make a difference.

Will the 405/101 work?

If so, then check out the The Joint.

I like how we need more specifics - like tip, percentage tip, freeways selection, how close…

And so far only two recs.

Hit me with your best options in the general ballpark.
I only tip with c-notes which skews the math.

Oh my god those yelp pictures look incredible.

Don’t think I’d get close to $100 alone, so:

Dune, Proof, Tacos Villa Corona in Atwater
Mariscos Jalisco, La Unica, Pizzanista, Art + Fish, Dry River Brewing near the East LA Interchange
Tacos Don Cuco, Los Originales Tacos Arabes further East/SE

If you’ve specifically got money to burn, though, you could do a lot worse than a burger and a really damn fine whiskey or three at Everyone Royce Bar.
