Fried Pickles

I am in search of Fried Pickles. Seems to be popular in the South but I have yet to find them here. Has anyone seen them on a menu in Los Angeles or any surrounding areas?

        1. Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach. Absolutely wonderful.

            Beachwood has great BBQ in general.

              Who would have thought great pickles are found at Hooters (of all places...). But yes, they have the best pickles I tasted in LA.

          2. They also have them on the menu at the Counter in Santa Monica but the best I've had in LA have been (sadly) from Hooters.

              I have not yet been but take a look at the last item under "Sides" on the 8oz menu:

                Wow, here's the answer to Diana's question from yesterday of where to go for "naughty" food. Fried pickles, fried olives, fried cheese curds? I have to make it over there soon...

                  Glad to provide a possible respite from your sadness at having to frequent Hooters for your fried pickle fix. The onion rings and fries at 8oz also seem to be outstanding, according to the CH posts from those who have been...though there appears to be an odd charge for ketchup for the fries (albeit homemade from heirloom tomatoes).

                    Save your money on 8oz.'s cheese curds. Not good, and they use the wrong batter. They obviously thought that they were just smaller versions of mozzarella sticks.
