I work in Monrovia, my friend at JPL, so we often meet in Pasadena for lunch, along the 210. There's only so much The Hat and Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles we can eat.
I'm thinking between Lake and Santa Anita, but those aren't hard rules. More than 10 minutes off the freeway and we're cutting into valuable eating time!
Any recommendations would be appreciated. I'm looking for places that are above McDonalds and below $15/person.
