Less than $60 for 2 within walking distance of Hollywood & Highland

I'm looking for dinner recs for an adventurous 9 yr old and mom before a screening at the El Capitan. We like everything, but we're not looking for sushi, as we have a few favorites in that category. Would like to stay under $60 for the two of us.

      The Kobe beef chili cheese fries at Lucky Devils are absolutely killer...

    2. lucky devil's is probably your best bet. they've got an extensive menu of gourmet burgers, salads, sandwiches & milkshakes...should satisfy both you & your 9-year-old.

      1. Try Lift in the ground floor of the renovated Hillview Apartment building. Here is my previous post:

        1. Skoobys hot dogs and fries. I can't vouch for the dogs, but the fries are hands down the best in LA. Then get a Beard Papa cream puff for dessert.

          Probably under $20 for the two of you.

          1. I hate to do this because I have not eaten there, but maybe others can chime in.
            25th Degrees is supposed to be a good hamburger place at Roosevelt hotel.
            Maybe too much for a 9 yr old?


            I have eaten at the hotel's main restaruant though and it was nothing special. Not bad, just not great.

            I've eaten at Skoobys and it's pretty good. The young ones I took loved it!

              I've only been there a few times. I like the burgers and fries, although the latter come in huge portions -- one order is more than enough for two. And the burgers may be too much for a child's appetite.

              Other CHers have complained about inconsistencies in the food. And many including myself have noted the very slow service -- probably best to avoid it if you're on a schedule to see a show.
