I want Fried Chicken

Should I just roam on Crenshaw?

          I second that.. Golden Bird = great chicken. If the OP is talking about roaming around Crenshaw, there is an actual Golden Bird branch on Santa Rosalia - that's one of the orignal locations. Porky's is a licensee of the recipe.

            Porky's Golden Bird Fried Chicken is great!

            Check out the menu at Porky's web site:

              Golden Bird is definitely the BEST! But it's SO FRIED... you can only eat that like, once a year - maybe twice. Plus, they are always located in really horrible neighborhoods, but if you can brave it - it's SOO good.

            2. roscoe's is quite good

              1. M&M soul food on Crenshaw and MLK blvd. has great fried chicken plus they have killer sides.

                  I second that. There's one on Centinela between Sepulveda & La Tijera too.

                    I went to the M&M Soul Food in Lakewood with a group of friends. We all ordered different plates and sides, and everything was really tasty. We had no room for sweet potato pie or pudding, although we were very tempted.

                    This is the one I went to. (There are others in the area, but the ownership and quality of food may differ from location to location. The sweet potatoes were yummy. The chicken was yummy. The fried catfish was yummy. Everything was basically yummy.)

                      Yes, that is one of my favorite places when I don't want to think about calories...I always have to warn people about it being in a bowling alley.

                        Right. The location is very easy to miss. It is in a huge parking lot, next to a bowling alley, and you have to enter the bowling alley first to get to the front door of this location of M&M. Sundays after church it's super crowded, so expect a long wait if you go at that time. :)
