    There's Taix & Barragan's that immediately come to mind.

      Very casual and minutes from the Stadium is Phillippes, home of the french dip sandwich. Very family friendly and an LA landmark since 1908. Get in line and try the lamb dip & some pie.

            Just be prepared for the massive lines of fellow Dodger fans who have all had the same idea.

            How about Masa on Sunset and Lemoyne for Italian and their deep dish Chicago style pizza?

              Yang Chow in Chinatown (west side of Broadway north of Alpine) accepts reservations, has their own parking, and offers the great slippery shrimp.

                  My choice would be Mexicali Taco but it's very casual (order at counter, etc).

                    Chinatown is my go to after any Dodger game. CBS is a good place for chinese and right behind it is Philippes for a lighter meal. Not far away would be Little Tokyo and downtown where you'll have even more options depending on what you are feeling that night.

                      Bouttega Louie, Wurstk├╝che, UMAMIcatessen, Pete's and if you want to go casual try Farid.

                        ipsedixit...these are all great suggestions!

                        All of them appear to be open all day on Saturday...thanks!

                          Hello, ipsedixit!

                          Tah-Dah!!!! We went to Bottega Louie downtown on Grand...thanks to your suggestion!

                          We had been there when they first opened; it was good then, but it was fantastic last night.
                          I thought if we walked in at 4:00pm, we would enjoy a quiet dinner. Nope! At 4:00pm the tables were almost filled and there was a lot of bustle in the air. It is such a happy place!

                          Our service was professional, friendly and extraordinary and the food was very good. We had salads and pizzas; the pizzas came out hot and we could taste the fine ingredients. We also had their portobello fries...very fun! Unfortunately, we did not have any dessert...next time!

                          Thanks to all Hounds who recommended great places, but Bottega Louie was perfect before a Dodger game. ...and NO, we didn't eat ANYTHING at the game!

                          Nice list, vegetablelasagna.

                          Langer's sounds good...but they close too early: M-Sat. 8:00am - 4:00pm.

                            Hey, thanks! Used to live in the neighborhood, walk to Dodger games, get the $13 bleacher seats (ah, youth...) so I know the food over there more or less. And yeah, only way Langer's would work based on your timeline would be to get there around 3:45/leave around 4:15 or do curbside at like 3:55 if they'll do it (I'm guessing you should probably do something else.) Anyway, you'll be fine, my recs are only the tip of the iceberg for Echo Park/Silverlake/Downtown.

                            (BTW, if you're willing to be a little further from the stadium, try India Sweets & Spices in Atwater or pretty much anywhere on Vermont or Hillhurst between Sunset & Los Feliz. Also Hollywood between Vermont & Sunset is a good food strip, as is Sunset between Hollywood & the stadium.)

                            I thought about Red Hill too but they close after lunch at 2:30 and don't open for dinner until 6pm. The 4pm time makes it hard.

                              " The 4pm time makes it hard."

                              I agree, bg90027. The early time eliminates a lot of the good downtown/Little Tokyo restaurants. However, we are considering Parks BBQ; they are open all day, from late morning into the wee hours. Also, Parks is good with a group, and we are 4.

                            I so very much appreciate all the terrific and speedy responses to my question about where to eat dinner near Dodger Stadium on Saturday, late afternoon.

                            Thanks, ALL!

                              Is there anything decent to eat for dinner in the stadium? Please don't say dodger dogs.

                                  We brought Subway in. I would have preferred a better sandwich, but my kids can be stinkers. The game was good.

                                    Gotta tell you, if it's a choice between Dodger dogs and Subway's funky, stinky proto-bread, I'm going for the dogs. And add some garlic fries to my order.

                                      We were going for cheap. But you're right. In fact make a meal of the garlic fries and skip the dog. My choice would have been to bring in "all about the bread" sandwiches which are really close to our place.

                                          Even the deli sandwiches from Ralphs are better... and can be just as cheap...
