This takeout window of a Venice steakhouse is a great place for a quick lunch, or really any meal where you don’t feel like opening a door to a restaurant, let alone sitting down in one. There’s a $4 burger with caramelized onions, pickles, and thousand island dressing that’s better than any non-In-N-Out $4 burger deserves to be, alongside a solid (and quite filling) chicken sandwich with house slaw. Next time you’re in Venice and want a good, hyper-fast meal, this is the spot.
