From orange county airport to Santa monica (JW Marriott)

Any quick lunch place on the way to Santa Monica. Easy on and off highway. Even fast food will work!

Thanks!

You'll see many fast food places along the 405, just take your pick!

How will you drive? If you are not rushed for time, I would take the coastal highway (Pacific Coast Highway aka PCH/Hwy 1) and avoid the 405. Lots of great views, especially if you take a couple of detours.

Plenty of places to stop. I was going to recommend In-n-Out Burger, but now they are open in Texas, so not as much of a treat as it used to be.

Yes in TX now, but 3 out if 4 of us haven't tried it yet! How much time does it add driving the PCH?

I would say about an hour, without stops. Easy to get to from the airport, just head down MacArthur Blvd towards the ocean and make a right on PCH.

Heading north on the 405, we always get off at Inglewood Ave. in the city of Redondo Beach, for an In N Out Burger. It's at the bottom of the off ramp. South of LAX. Easy to get right back on.

Be sure to order off the secret menu. I like the Animal Style Cheeseburger, Fries well done and a Neapolitan Shake.

There's an In-N-Out right by the 405 freeway if you don't take the scenic route - use the Inglewood Ave. exit and the In-n-Out is right there so you can get right back on the freeway when you're done.
