        GF swears by johnnie's pickles.

      2. My Current Favorites are at the Cal Poly Farm Store in Pamona and even if you don't like pickels It's worth the trip.

        1. Junior's Deli Westwood Bl. Fresh dill/half sours on the table. Better than Gus' Pickles on Orchard in NYC - the famous pickle guys.

          Roll and Rye in Culver City has good pickles and green tomatoes.

            1. I most like the ones I make myself, but in stores, I like the kosher dill pickles at Langers and the half-sour pickles from the Ukranian market in Santa Monica (whose name I cannot remember).

                The best sour pickles in THE WORLD come from Canada - Strubs. They're sold at a few
                Ralphs on the Westside - in the refrigerated case at Barrington and Olympic comes to mind. My wife and I have ssearched the world for better and there is nothing that compares.

                  Have you tried Batampte pickles from Brooklyn? They are available in some supers and are also sold at some delis. (And may in fact be what you are getting if the deli doesn't make their own). I love the green tomatoes! My mother used to reuse the juice to make more from tomatoes we picked in the fields in South Florida.
