Who serves Tater Tots?

Ordered some tater tots at SIMON (in the Hotel Sofitel) last night and it was utterly disappointing (as was the rest of the meal), but it did pique my craving for them.

So ... who still serves tater tots (besides my old grade school cafeteria)?

Not necessarily looking for the high-end ones (like the herb crusted ones at SIMON) and in fact the more down-to-earth the better.

Thanks all.

  1. Being that my screenname is "tatertots" . . . UCLA actually serves tatertots in all of it's morning breakfast venues. And they are EXCELLENT. Crispy, not soggy just like grade school cafeterias. . . .

    Other than that, around town in restaurants - I haven't seen any available. Sorry.

    1. Big Wangs. I feel like they go straight from the bag to the fryer, with perhaps some seasoning thrown on. I get them every time I am forced (and it is forced) to go there. Their wings aren't bad either.

        Jacinthe, couldn't have said it better mahself.
        The only redeeming feature of this horrid Dolce Group disaster is the tater tots. They need seasoning, but they were crispy and delish.

          Big Wang's is a funny place.

          The service is awful, the place is loud, but I'll be damned if I don't mind going there sometimes as LA is very deficient in the sports bar category.

          But yeah, tater tots--YES!

        2. Ralph's, Albertsons, Jons, Vons, Howes.......450 degrees for 12 minutes and sprinkle with your favorite seasoning.
