Came here with a group of 3 others later in the evening after a train ride back to San Diego- most restaurants in the area were closed, but the sign for Marrakesh declared they were open. We decided to check it out and asked for a menu, but they said they didn't have one and rushed us off to the dining area and seated us. They gave us four options: chicken, beef, lamb, or vegetarian. It turns out it was a huge 4-or-5 course meal- which we had never asked for- and the bill turned up at the end to be about $40 each. It was incredibly deceptive and we felt we could not leave after being seated. The restaurant was empty too- never a good sign! The food was alright, but it took nearly 2 hours to finish the meal. Overall would NOT recommend.
In the midst of urban Main St in the Historic Core, Pete's is a welcome relief to the hustle and bustle of downtown LA. The food is great- although note the menu is small. My favorite dish was the spinach salad. It was really done well. Prices are in the $8-14 range for lunch, which is a bit on the high end, but the classiness of the venue and the great food makes it worth it. Would recommend.
This place gets really busy on weekends, but if you're looking for a hoppin' restaurant and good, American-style food, you'd make a good choice coming here. Rock Bottom has great appetizers and beer, which makes it a terrific happy hour venue. Have been here many times and always enjoyed the food (although the tap water is really gross- beware!).
Cotixans is a notorious college hangout, especially late into the night following..."festivities". The food is nothing special, but its cheap and filling. The restaurant is definitely an experience- a real "hole-in-the-wall" Mexican joint-meets-McDonalds. But never underestimate a greasy burrito at 2am... you just never know when the craving will hit!
My boyfriend has been seeing the Econ Tutor as needed for a couple years now. Anytime he's lost (or thinks he is lost) in a class, he goes to the Econ Tutor and gets right back on track. The Econ Tutor has been absolutely instrumental in helping my boyfriend get the grades he wants and obtain truly good understanding of difficult topics in economics.
Have never actually eaten in the restaurant, but the take-out is good. I especially like the pizza with goat cheese and spinach (I think its called the Hercules). It's unique and delicous. Bread sticks are also very tasty!
Hodad's has a fun flair- I went with a friend and have been dying to return with my boyfriend and other friends. The walls are covered with license plates, so even while you're waiting for your food you will never be bored. The food is awesome. Don't pass up a milkshake... they're delicious (but share with a friend, since they are large and very filling). Veggie options (grilled cheese, veggie burgers) are just as good as the meat options here, which is rare!
Went here for a weekday lunch buffet with a friend. The food was pretty good, especially considering that it was a buffet, and selection was decent. The naan was to die for! The interior was classy and attire for most was business casual. Service was alright- but again, considering this was for the lunch buffet- can't expect much more.
Sue's is known for having great Indian food, although I must admit I was not all that impressed. It was good, but not terrific. The ambiance was also lacking- it was somewhat boring and, for the price of the food, the restaurant should be better decorated and more intriguing.
This Italian eatery is a great choice for those who like Italian food that's a bit edgier. Pasta, of course, serves great pasta, as well as several appetizing salads. The restaurant is a classy cafe- so most people who frequent the place are young professional types, or those out for a stroll on Castro Street.
