lunch near Loyola Law School?

I'll be spending some time doing research at the law library, and I'm completely unfamiliar with the neighborhood. Any advice on good lunch options? Many thanks -

    lots of good Taco places nearby. Try Bandini's blog for specifics.

      There really aren't any great places nearby within walking distance (IIRC, other than fast food, the only places within walking distance are a couple of Salvadoran places for pupusas), but you are short drive from a lot of fun places to eat. You could head over to Phillipes for french dip sandwiches, or to Mercado La Paloma for a number of good Mexican options. Little Tokyo and Chinatown are very close by as well. Langer's Deli for the best pastrami in LA is also a short drive away.

        Hi, I went to Loyola Law School for three years....I always had to drive off campus for lunch, there really wasn't anything walking distance. I frequently ate lunch at Phillipe's, La Taquiza by USC, El Jarrito, Yang Chow in Chinatown, Langer's, Papa Christos on Pico and Normandie, Grand Central Market, Angelique Cafe (http://www.angeliquecafe.com/), and Cassell's for hamburgers. Morton's downtown serves lunch and has a fantastic hamburger and a steak salad stacked with tomatoes and blue cheese. I would also have late lunches at various happy hours downtown - such as those at Ciudad and Nick and Stef's. I am sure more places will come to mind as the day goes on...There is a lot of good food to be eaten in the LLS vicinity!

          Moxie Cafe is a nice little place for lunch. You can keep studying as they have free wi-fi there. I've liked all the sandwiches I've had there until yesterday when I got the sandwich of the week, "corny reuben," which was tiny. I'd recommend getting anything else.

            since you'll be driving, you might as well get the amazing chicken served at dino's

              Dino's is really worth checking out if you haven't been -- it is on the N/W corner of Pico at Berendo, a couple of blocks west of Vermont, with parking in the back. They do a huge pastrami sandwich, a good carne asada plate, and a credible burger, but the majority of people are ordering the crazy chicken special. It is a marinated, grilled half-small-bird, with an addictive garlicky-turmeric-vinegary "sauce." Served on a big bed of thin crispy fries with a small cup of cole slaw and some tortillas, it is an amazing lunch for about $5.
