Place to eat for a quick lunch from SJD airport to La Paz

Our flight gets in around 2pm and heading to La Paz after picking up a rental car. Any suggestions on places near the airport that's on the way for a quick lunch as we want to get to La Paz before the sunset?

We always rent our vehicles from Cabosuvrentals.com which runs out of La Palapa restaurant just on the other side of the highway from the airport. The wife is always starving when we get off the plane and she loves their fish fingers and guacamole. In fact we get it so often the owner John Paul orders it for us when we are waiting for our bags.

The are also a couple of places on the highway right when you head out but not much until Los Barriles which is about the halfway point.

Depends on whether you want to drive after dark

After Customs and getting your car, you will probably be on the road by 4 at best. If you want to get to La Paz before dark, there are some good taco places in Todos Santos you can stop into. Take the Toll road out of SJD to save a lot of time. Have pesos for the booths.

While the 1 is more scenic. If I were you, I'd take the 19 through Todos Santos, along the west coast in the interest of time.

My flight gets in at 1:30, after immigration, customs, getting the car and a quick stop at Soriana I figure I’ll be lucky to make it to Los Barriles before sundown much less La Paz. I believe sundown is 5:30

I would get on my way as fast as possible, heading through Los Barriles.

Don't let the rental car agent send you to a timeshare shark.

There are places along the way to grab something to eat while you drive. A restaurant stop will take a lot more time than you have to spare.
