    For those unfamiliar with Phillipe's, there's no table service at all. You order at their counter, get your food on a tray, and carry it to any open table in the joint.  They have seating available at street level and on their second floor.  As busy as they may get on a Sunday, it's nothing in comparison to what they're like during the weekday lunch period (12pm to 2pm).  On those days, you can wait in line to order for more than 30 minutes.  Even under those circumstances, I've always been able to find seating, and have never seen any customers backed up waiting for tables to be vacated (except for those who insist on sitting downstairs, only).

        Also, at Phillippe's we can take the gathering upstairs and I doubt if we would be rushed what so ever.  I will go with the flow, sit and take it slow or get up and go! It will be quite the show you know........LOL

          I live down the street from Phillipe's. I'd love to eat a delicious sandwich and meet other roadfood fanatics! I'm new to roadfood. Should I just keep checking back on this forum for the details?

              I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas! Well actually, I feel like I did as a kid waiting for Thanksgiving. By the way Morganen, being the new kid to roadfood, at your first Meet and Eat you have to find the biggest guy there and give him a dollar. I don't make the rules...........LOL Thats what Al The Mayor made me do 5 years ago at my first one.  Love Ya Al......LOL

                welcome to Roadfood.

                right now the tentative time to meet will be at 1pm at Philippes.
                Stay tuned for details as they might change.

                  Sheesch Glenn,  Don't tell the Roadfooder's about that damn Dollar....I've been collecting more than that from them since '05 !!! 
                   
                  Just kidding about the toll charge guys. However I do remember arriving at Woody's BBQ (Foothill Blvd, in Rancho Cuc.) a bit early (as usual) for that first meeting. It was Superbowl Sunday in 2004. When I pulled in Jan and I  (and McDuff) sat in the truck for a few minutes, then up walked a big mean looking guy who identified himself as "Big Glenn"...and the rest is history.  What that says is that Glenn was the first person on this site that we met at a "Meet-n-eat". We had one-on-one sessions with Rick F and his wife, and with Bushie on the way west, but the meet-up was our first group get-together and it set the pattern for all the rest. Elise, Red Patti, Lleechef (Lisa) were all there. It was a real good time.

                      Oooooooohhhhh noooooo, I'd love to meet n greet forum members from So Cal, espcially at Phillipe's my favorite sandwich shoppe, plus as indicated Cielito Lindo in nearby Olvera St-the starting point of the 'the City of Angels". Wow, however on Friday the 18th my wife and I embark to Sacramento for a week as my sister in law is getting married that same day and we want to go visit friends in Santa Rosa while being so near before returning to the Southland.
                       
                      Please post your next meeting and thanks for planning this

                          We'll just have to meet next time.

                          Enjoy the wedding!

                            Well, we're less than 2 weeks away from the big event...

                            I know I'm psyched......

                            To prep me for my upcoming trip, I had california rolls twice in one week, first with coworkers at a local Japanese Restaurant here in Rhode Island   and I just picked up some today at Trader Joe's for dinner. I'm still trying to decide which sucked more!

                            I'm looking forward to having "the real thing"!

                                  I haven't been on Roadfood in a little while.  I'd love to join you at Philippe's and Celito Lindo.  How did you know that my family always hits those two places in succession?  Luz del Dia is wonderful too.  The best is the carnitas on home made corn tortillas.

                                  I love the mustard.  Put that in your potato salad for a little kick!

                                  I would have missed this if it weren't on the front page.

                                    UPDATE


                                    For those who were planning on joining me at  Daichan for dinner  after the festivities at Philippe, Cielito Lindo, etc., well as it turns out, being "Mr. Plan Ahead" pays off! They're closed on Sundays

                                    Perhaps as an alternative for those who are interested  we can meet for Korean BBQ at Parks BBQ in Koreatown for dinner
                                    http://www.parksbbq.com
                                    According to their website, they're open on Sundays too!

                                    Glad you can join us!

                                      Park's sounds great to me.  I've wanted to try it for awhile now and my Applebee friends just don't see it.

                                      Hope everyone can go!  I've heard about the panchan or banchan that they put out on the table and I need a taster!

                                        Just making another post in an attempt to keep the news on the front page of roadfood. It's LA, I hope we get a good turn out. It will be another 5 years before we pull off another one. LOL

                                          I'll follow your lead, BigGlenn, and post my entry to keep this thread active.  How many of us will there be at Phillipe's on 4/19?  Also, for those who haven't met up before, how do we recognize each other (besides the happy grins of satisfied diners, that is)?

                                            Will we all have cameras?

                                            We might need a reservation for Parks.

                                              Oh you won't miss me......I bet money there won't be anyone there bigger than me. LOL   We need to design a National Road Food badge that we can buy from this site with our name on it just for times like these. I am sure there will be some kind or protocol figured out before we all meet.  I am looking forward to meeting everyone too!

                                                I will definitely be there, most likely plus one. I too was wondering how we would recognize each other.

                                                  We have posted photos of Glenn and Elise and Dale on this thread...and I believe that Marlene has a photo or two on some of her trip threads. Take a look at them and look around the place!! iF THAT DOESN'T WORK...STAND UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE THE CROWD AND SHOUT "ROADFOOD"...anyone without a police uniform who responds is probably one of the group !!
                                                   
                                                  We have used stick-on nametags at some meetings, but frankly haven't needed them as the members tend to be outgoing enough to introduce themselves without any problems about 'talking to strangers'!!

                                                    Al,

                                                    It is useless to post pictures of Dale as a means of identifying him.  None of them look like Dale.

                                                      Haha, great. Even though I'll be able to recognize some people now, I still might get the urge to yell "ROADFOOD!"

                                                        going to laminate it in and use a lanyard around my neck.  Just like Nascar...LOL I haven't givren up on that idea just yet. I will share with everyone if it comes out OK. Later.....

                                                            I really am sorry I won't be there, This is starting to sound like a pretty good get together.
