need quick amazing takeout between LAX and Torrance

We went to the taco truck on Arbor Vitae near Airport Rd, Mariscos el Sabroso. Fast, really good ceviche and tacos. It is a white truck w/o any signage. Made it to Torrance with time to spare. Thank you everyone.

Any ideas for dinner near my hotel? I would like to check out AFrame and have a reservation at Hinoki & The Bird, but.... I'd wouldn't mind walking to dinner. Any recs?

Honestly coming from NY, I love the taco trucks in CA. I found one on CH a few years ago. It was parked by an auto parts store. Really, really good. If I knew of a Kogi BBQ truck near the airport. I wouldn't be wasting your time. I come in next Wednesday before the restaurant opens at LAX, sigh

Taco Truck

I'll be in the LA south bay area soon and will be driving from LAX to Torrance around lunch time, of course.
Are there any good taco trucks near the airport or on the way to Torrance?
I'm coming from the east coast and suffer from taco deprivation.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Dinner on the way back from Santa Barbara

Nosh, I'm really liking your suggestion, a lot.
There will be three of us. We're in CA for the fancy food show in SF. Our first "meeting" is a bus a trip to Point Reyes Creamery on Friday. On Saturday the real work begins.
Thank you

I'm not sure, I haven't looked on google maps yet. I was assuming that if I stayed along the coast, it would be easier...

Dinner on the way back from Santa Barbara

I will be driving back to LAX on a Thursday night and I'm looking for a dinner recommendation. I have made a reservation at Lucques, because I have always wanted to try it. Now, I'm thinking that I may not want to deal with downtown LA and maybe I should think of somewhere near 101.
I am having dinner @ Gjelina on Tuesday night, for a point of reference.
Thanks in advance

Update: Returning to (now from) Key West after 40 years

You are so right about Pepe's.
I fondly remember the grapefruit margaritas and never mind the steak smothered pork chop!

Rehearsal Dinner

I love all the thoughtful answers, thank you. I got a quote from Above. The food cost is ok, but consumption bar is the only option they have for liquor. I'm afraid I'll pay so much more for drinks than dinner. Not a fan of libretti's or Calabria. Hat City has good chicken and ribs, but parking could be an issue, if there's a private room, it's probably up a flight of stairs. I've had a small family thing at Nero's, I'll call and see they have room for us. Thanks everyone, keep the ideas coming.

Rehearsal Dinner

Thank you, Curlz, I appreciate your help. I've been to both 1 and 23. I think I prefer 23. The thing about Pal's is that the ages in our group go from 25 to 85 and not everyone has the excellent and adventurous taste that you and I do.

Rehearsal Dinner

Thank you for all of your suggestions. Curlz, I really like Chengdu 23, It's the best Chinese restaurant in our area. I'm in the minority though. I'll look into Bar Cara, although BYO would save a bundle. Any positive thoughts on the private room at Pal's?

Rehearsal Dinner

I was thinking of somewhere a little nicer than a pizzeria, Rose Med. looks nice for dinner, but the menu is similiar to the wedding's, Pal's isn't what it used to be...
Please keep thinking, thank you

Great Barrington

Wow, I didn't mean to start a food fight. I was just up for the Labor Day weekend and had to try La Fiesta. Call me a contrarian and I do love a challenge, especially if it doesn't cost too much.
I really liked it. I had a margarita, guac and a shrimp dish. I would definitely go back.
