Good Cheap Eats with Beer on Tap near The Fonda Theater
Wondering if anybody has any great ideas for a place to grab a beer and a bite before a show at the Fonda on Sat? I love the Blue Palms but they are having a Dogfishhead takeover. That might not appeal or be affordable to my whole party. I was thinking Jitlada but the wait might become a problem.
I tried out Mission Cantina after a show at the Fonda, 5 tacos for $12 was certainly cheap and very tolerable, including my san diego friends who know a few things about tacos. It was a very good chill hang out after a show place. I will not claim it as the best tacos around but does match the qualities requested - and an actual walk from the Fonda, no repark required.
Before a different show, we ate at the Palms Thai. No line, not as good as Jitlada but better than a poke in the eye. We actually sat outside to avoid the Thai Elvis - I liked the Mission Cantina atmosphere better.
Neither has beer as good as Blue Palms, both barely have beer at all, but they either have bottles or the usual Stella rack.
I know I don't contribute much to the LA board but up on the NorCal board I write a lot. Just happened to see this one.
Thanks for the advice guys. I actually ended up getting a 30% off for The Morrison in Atwater. Since we live in ER it was on the way so we went there. Good solid food, great drinks & lots of beer on tap. The shephards pie was the standout. I actually really miss the blood sausage farrotto we have had there in the past but they took it off them menu due to lack of sales.
