Where do LAPD officers take their lunch break?

Chow worthy food can be a quick meal, as well as a leisurely one. Expensive or inexpensive. Dine In or To Go.
People who enjoy good food are in all segments of our population. Preference for good food is not limited to the affluent and sophisticated.

Comp or no comp, they mirror the civilian population.

I disagree. The percentage of LAPD who choose to eat chow worthy food is the same as the general population.

Kevin - Great list. Pacific Dining Car is where crime writer James Elroy regularly met with detectives to gather info about the mystery of his Mother's murder.
Contrary to popular belief, there are more 'houndly cops' than we realize. They know which places have the best food in their division and prefer owner operated over the usual chains like Denny's, IHOP, etc..

Doesn't matter which division. Just post the restaurant names and area of the city. Some people may not know the division names, but they will know the neighborhods.

My first McDonald's experience was on the Mass Turnpike in 1960 en route to Boston. It was love at first bite. I still enjoy their fries, but not their burgers.

So how do you account for the presence of LAPD in some restaurants and not in others? Coincidence?
BTW some years back I served a year long internship at LAPD and went on many "ride alongs". We always ate well and free.
I am surprised that so many officers and restaurant owners are readily breaking the law. Please explain.

In Los Angeles, on duty officers are comped at the discretion of the restaurant owner. It has been that way for at least 50 years.

When you see on duty LAPD officers dining in a particular restaurant, there are three important reasons (other than good food):
1. The restaurant and neighborhood has a high crime volume and the owner has red flagged his business for frequent visits from LAPD.
2. On duty officers get their meals comped, as well they should.
3. It sends a warning message to criminals to keep out, while reassuring customers they can safely enjoy their meal..

I have seen uniformed LAPD at Langer's on Alvarado & 7th and Piper's Coffee Shop on Western Ave below Santa Monica Blvd.. Which restaurants have you observed routine police presence? .

Keller is a master chef who can do no wrong in my book. Alas, it isn't the case with other chefs.
Although I must admit I love the frozen fries at McDonalds. However, I consider McDonald's the exception and not the rule..

Al Langer died and his son is now running the show. He's a chip off the old block. These are good people.

Back in the day, Wolfie's was fantastic. I went back seven years ago. It changed. The food was awful.

Langer's is in a section of the city called Westlake. Not Westlake Village. What i can't figure out is what hotel is next door to Langer's. It's a run down slum area, rife with junkies and assorted criminal types..

Have you tried Fu's Palace on Pico Blvd near Robertson?
It's N.Y. Cantonese. My New York friends swear by it.

Keep going until the novelty wears off or you can't button your shirt.
I think the espresso got lost in the valrhona chocolate. Try it with plain vanilla ice cream next time. Enjoy your addiction!
