Pann's - Thoughts, recommendations, things to avoid?

After driving past it thousands of times, I'm finally going to Pann's. A friend, who's an architecture freak, has a layover at LAX. I'm picking her up for close quick dinner.

So, let's through this net wide...What's good?

      I second what others are posting but want to add the link to the web page. The fried chicken dinner is maybe the best in town. I have had dry mac & cheese twice, very moist one. A plate of Fried chicken wings for the table are a must if you order something other than fried chicken dinner as your main meal. The shakes are very good. the Oreo shake is a must try. The Turkey dinner is like Thanksgiving Day and the cranberry sauce that comes with it is exceprional. Burgers and that patty melt are good. Get some pea soup to go bwcause you will want something the next day that reminds you of the good home cook'n you had the night before.

      I hope someone says something about the steaks and chops.I would like to try them myself but I just keep ordering tat freied chicken dinner ...

        the vanilla shake is horrid.
        the ice cream they use is the lowest quality, not creamy, and has an aftertaste of artificial flavor.

        also, do not get the grilled cheese sandwich. i know, it's hard to screw up grilled cheese, but they managed to do it.

        the waffles are on par with the kind you can buy from the freezer case at any safeway.

    2. 6 chicken wings with or without the waffle or the fried chicken dinner with a baked potato or the patty melt medium rare

      1. The WINGS! The Pea Soup. The Club Sandwich. The Milkshakes!! :)
