Something aside from Thai off the 101 near normandie and Melrose?

Hi there, kind of a particular request.

I'm meeting a friend for lunch in about an hour and a half and she needs to meet at a place right off the freeway. The most appealing Yelp find was Prael, but if you have any other recs for a sit down but not too upscale super close to that I would be eternally grateful. I'm kind of not really craving Thai right now.

    Is Santa Monica and Normandie too far? Arax Falafel is takeout with some tables (indoors) and is very good.

      La Fonda Antioquena

        Maybe La Buca on Melrose.

          Scoops, on heliotrope. Chat over cool ice creams.

              Might be too late for you but Sqirl is at 720 N. Virgil (1 block N of Melrose and about 3 blocks E of Normandie)
              Good luck!
