Recs needed for 8+ people, including Grandma
We're staying in Santa Monica (SM Blvd/26th) and are looking for a place that would suit all of us. I dont want to go to 3rd Street Promenade, and I'd like to stay within about a 15 min drive. I'd like to stay below $25 or so per person. No sushi or Japanese. We have 1 vegitarian, 1 grandma who is not terribly adventurous but will deal with whatever, and I really hate seafood.
Any suggestions? I looked at the Library, but they dont take reservations. Anything similar? Pref. not a chain.
I tried to do a search on the board but wasn't terribly successful.
