I've found some of the yummiest food at places next to car washes. In fact, it's pretty hard to find bad food there. Any favorites?

    Eduardos on Westwood Blvd, just south of car wash at Santa Monica and Westwood. Very fresh, delicious Mexican cuisine.

      El Taco Llama in North Hollywood. It is at the car wash on Magnolia, just east of Tujunga. Great asada and birria tacos with a kick-ass smoky salsa roja.

      Tacos La Fonda is a bit of a cheat. It is a truck that parks in a car wash lot after hours. It is located at Vineland and Vanowen in North Hollywood.

        Well, this is a total cheat, since they aren't related, but Ajisai is across the street from the Palm Carwash on SM Blvd in West Hollywood, and I often belatedly think I should have combined my lunch dates there with a carwash.

          Tia Gladys - next to the Mission Valley car wash in San Gabriel. Serving up great mexican food. Car wash will hold your car as you dine there.

            THE OUTDOOR GRILL, where Washington Blvd and Washington Place meet in culver city, towards Venice Beach,,,,,
            the greatest ribs, the best tri-tip, unbelievably reasonable prices,,,,,
            DO NOT go here for the ambiance,
            go for the food, and be amazed at how good "car-wash food" can be!!!!!!!

              I totally agree with M Blues. This place is actually part of the car wash and I bet more people eat there than get their car washed. I know I did.

              Benitos http://www.benitos.com/ next to the car wash on Santa Monica Blvd. at Federal Ave. in WLA and directly across the street for Oaxacan food at Juquila.
