West Adams -- Any and All Suggestions

I'm two weeks away from a move to a new place in the West Adams area. The new place is a few blocks from the Crenshaw Phillips, which obviously will become a new (and waistline enhancing) favorite. But I need other choices, and this seems like a neighborhood that should be a haven for true hounds. Any and all favorites would be appreciated.

  1. The gumbo at Bayou Grille is really good.

    1400 N. La Brea, Inglewood

    And although I still haven't tried it, by all accounts, the gumbo at Harold and Belle's is amazing.

    Also, pass by The Crab Pit when I go to Bayou Grille, will need to try that out: 1220 N. LaBrea, 310-673-1677.

    Plus you'll be pretty close to culver city and all of its offerings.

    1. Thanks . . . will definitely have to check these out.

        Tasty Q for Fried Turkey
        J&J Burger Shack & BBQ for great Q, Smoked Chiken Wings and great potatoe salad
        Chili Johns on Crenshaw south of Jefferson a few blocks
        The Hot Dog Place on Crenshaw north of 43rd

        1. Thanks -- what does Marilyn's serve?

          1. re: kablamo

            A variety of soul food items, at a very low cost per item. Lines out the door are very common.

          2. The Kobbler King on Jefferson is also a good bet, even though the location is technically in Jefferson Park, not West Adams. Peach and mixed berry are great. The savory ones (chicken, etc.) are good, too, although I would pass on "seafood cobbler."
