Dinner for large group near LAX

I'm looking for someplace that will accomodate a group of twenty to twenty five people near the LAX. We do have transportation but want to keep the cost to under $25 per person including tax and tip. Thanks.

  1. if your group is open to having thai food, go to ayara thai cuisine.
    they will set you up in their upstairs 'balcony' area and will set up a buffet for the group.

      1. This place is big and can seat that many people. Nice place to hangout with a large crowd.

          many times when i've eaten at cozymel's, even without ordering alcohol, the tab has run over the $25/pp budget including tax and tip.
          their starters are about nine dollars and the entrees start at $13 and go up from there.
          margaritas are about $11.

        2. truxton's has a private room that my be able to accomodate your group. american food should please the crowd.

            unless they get a 'special' menu for the group, it's unlikely that they'll make budget at truxton's.
            the 'plates' at truxton's start at around $18. a cup of onion soup is about $8.

            it is very unlikely that a group of 20 to 25 people will order carefully enough to get the bill to come in at $25/pp including beverage tax and tip.

              Another thought. Pann's could probably accommodate you on their patio (which is enclosed).

                even alejo's will require careful ordering in order to come in at budget.

                virtually all of their chicken, veal, eggplant, and seafood entrees are priced at $14 to $15.
                if one adds a house salad or soup, that will cost an additional $4 or $5.
                even an non-alcoholic beverage will cost a couple of bucks; then add tax and tip and you're over the limit.

                alejo's will work easily if folks can be induced to stick to pasta and pizza
