Recommendations for cheap but tasty food near Venice and Overland??

Can anyone recommend some places to go where I can pick up some good food for a potluck and not break the bank? I live near the Beverly Center so somewhere in the area is idea.

      I really want to like Hu's but I haven't really liked anything that I have gotten from there.

        You're in luck - there are a wealth of good inexpensive restaurants within a half mile of Venice and Overland> Versailles, Cafe Brasil, Mama's Pizza, India Sweets and Spices, and the late night mediteranean place just west of there - i think it's called Gabi's - it's really good.

          Oh, I forgot Western Smokehouse - real good BBQ eat in or takeout on Overland a few blocks N. of Palms. Make sure to have their mashed potatoes. It's on the way to where you're heading.

      1. Versailles definitely
        Honey's Kettle for fried chicken and biscuits to die for
        Le dijonaise - good food and gret pasteries

        1. Tender Greens, on Culver Bl in Culver City has superb food, pleasant atmosphere (sit outdoors and watch the people go by), absurdly low prices for its quality.

          1. Closer to home, you could pick up some breads and pastries at BreadBar.
