Two hours in LA

Have a two hour stopover in LA, is there a good place to have dinner, close to the airport. Not much time to do anything else! Thanks.

No, sorry - not without a car, unless you walk to the In n' Out on Sepulveda. Your best bet is to go to the Encounter, a restaurant in the middle of LAX.

The Daily Grill at Tom Bradley International terminal isn't bad either.

Yikes! Two hours? If you want to chance it, take a cab to the In'N Out. Cheap and very good. Very worthwhile.

Is that the In 'N' Out Burger joint I have started hearing so much about?

And thanks for the suggestions...

Yes, it is the fabled In'N Out chain. All three suggested restaurants are good ideas. Just becareful you don't miss your flight.

Here's the website for Encounter: http://www.encounterrestaurant.com/

I wouldn't leave the airport and I might not even take a chance going to a restaurant. Two hours isn't very long at LAX.... You're going to have to come back through security and that could take you more than an hour.
