Locke's Flamin Fish & Shrimp- El Segundo
Has anyone been to this new place? I here it has really good soul food. Want to know what other hounds think?
Here's a link:
I ate here with a coworker last week and he ate there again yesterday. On our first trip we both tried the fried catfish with two sides and a drink (kool-aid or sweet tea).
The catfish was nice and reminiscent of those that I eat when I visit family in Mississippi. I had macaroni and cheese and collard greens as side, the coworker had mashed potatoes and corn with okra and tomotoes. I liked the macaroni and cheese but it is definetly not the best I've had, the greens were solid, the coworker really enjoyed the corn. The servings are a good size and I felt full after eating.
On the second visit the coworker ordered the chicken fried steak with two sides. He said it was delicious (it looked delicious and was a good size) and he skipped dinner that night.
They have good looking fried chicken and even some healthy choices like grilled chicken. The short ribs must be popular because they were sold out both times and we ate at about 11:30 am. The deserts look good and the servings looked to be about the size of a claim jumper serving. They have the basics peach cobbler, german chocolate cake, and a few more.
Overall we like the place, too bad it replaced the indonesian joint that was there before. It will definitely join my list of places to eat when I'm working near LAX. The women who work there are very friendly.
$7-8.50 for lunch with two sides and a drink.
