Restaurant near Burbank airport needed

I'm meeting a friend who is flying into Burbank at 4:30 on a Tuesday evening and who is later driving up to THousand Oaks. I am coming from Culver City and want to meet her as close to Burbank Airport as possible.

What we eat is less important than not dealing with traffic at 5 pm. I don't want a hotdog stand, but any type of ethnic restaurant or American restaurant that is not a Chilis type place would be fine.

This is an old friend I haven't seen in a few years and I'd like a quietish place where we can talk.

Sorry to be so vague, but I don't normally eat in that area. Price is not crucial though I prefer not to pay an arm and a leg.

  1. You would be fine with Gary Bric's Ramp. Very close to the airport. Note that the restaurant website has a 10% off coupon that you can print and use for your dinner, as it's good from Sunday through Thursday

    Gary Bric's Ramp
    7730 N Hollywood Way, Burbank, CA 91505

    1. In the Marriott (was the Hilton) across the street, a Daily Grill exists - a step up from Chili's - It's not too busy, so the pace should be slow and quiet!

      1. If you want close, how about literally across the street from the airport entrance ? Total drive time about 90 seconds.

        There is a Daily Grill attached to the Marriot Hotel across Hollywood Way from the main entrance to the airport. It's a pretty quiest place (usually) and they've got big, comfortable booths and the place has be updated fairly recently. I've eaten there fairly regularly over the years - usually business related meals. It's acceptable fair and they have a full bar.

        Here's a link:

        1. Thanks everyone for the quick replies. The Daily Grill at the Marriott sounds like a good place for catching up.

            this particular daily grill is one of the few restaurants that my wife and i simply walked out of because the silverware was filthy and we couldn't find anyone to wait on us. the ramp is a much better choice.

          2. Guantanamera (Cuban restaurant) on Burbank Blvd across the street from the Burbank Costco.

            Guantanamera Restaurant Inc.
            916 W Burbank Blvd, Burbank, CA
