When you enter the restaurant you are greeted by a hostess and she will hand you your “boarding pass.”  You take your boarding pass to the food station you would like to order from.  They put everything on your boarding pass, then go check out. This casual dining experience is self seating. You fill your own fountain drinks and pick up utensils etc.   Once you grab your food, you can head to the dining area.  Take your pick, inside or outside, either way you will have an awesome view of planes landing at LAX.  This will be a huge win for the little ones.
