How hard is it to find biscuits and gravy for dinner?

And I mean pan gravy, country gravy-the ooey gooey white stuff...

Well, apparently impossible.

John O Groats doesn't do dinner

Pann's doesn't have biscuits after 1

Roscoe's doesn't have country gravy.

Dianah's says they'll probably run out.

Good lord, what do I do?

Charlie's in the OFM is "mediocre food", as is the 50's cafe.

Anyone know of a place that will work? Bonus if they also have apple pie and amazing milk shakes!

    I'm pretty sure Flo's in Chino serves dinner... at least the Flo's #2 on Riverside does. It's far from every place you mentioned, but it's still in LA county (by a hair, I believe). They have what you are looking for.

        Diana, did you end up visiting Anisette? Did I somehow miss your review? Sorry for the off topic (biscuit) question.

          Oh yes. Great food. Not so great service from our waiter. He ws earnest, but he forgot two things we ordered (soup and my noodles) and had to be "reminded". The only other problem was that although I asked our mains to be remaid whilst we waited for the forgotten onion soup, they only re-made my husband's steak (perfectly cooked). My duck confit was left to sit under heatlamps, and thus came out dry, dry, dry.

          The Tower for two, the soup, the steak and frites, the noodles, the drinks were all faboo!

      Animal on Fairfax currently has Foie Gras Biscuits and Gravy.

      Not your traditional but worth sampling. Very rich!

        The question of the day:
        Why the hell would you ever want it for dinner?
        Oh, I see, it's the nutritional value.
        'nuff said!

          I prefer to go out for dinner. Usually I work out hard and eat really healthy.

          This is a decadent dinner, cause biscuits and gravy are few and far in between for me!

          the horseless carriage in north hills (basically the galpin ford's diner) has biscuits and gravy that are kind of awesome.

                Old posts about Chicken Fried steak & country gravy mention Claim Jumper, and of all places CHILI's!!! Several mentions for Chili's in fact!

                Give Norm's a try. They serve breakfast 24 hours, and have biscuits and gravy (white and ooey-goody, but without sausage) on the breakfast menu; that being the case, seems to me they might accommodate you by serving you B&G with your dinner. The problem, of course, is that Norm's food, with a few exceptions, is pretty mediocre.

                  It looks like they have them at the Waffle, although I have no idea if they're good.

                    I thought the biscuits from Honey Kettle Kitchen in Culver City were excellent this past weekend! Can't speak for the gravy or pie since all I ate was the bisquit by itself.

                      See now, if you read, I'm looking for the biscuits WITH country gravy. Heck, otherwise, I'd go to Dinah's and not worry.

                        Diana, I know from other posts how much you *need* to find a solution to this problem. I feel your pain. I suggest you resign yourself to the fact that you can't go out for a biscuit and gravy dinner... and plan a round up. I know you want to go out, but you could still have the best of everything, at home.

                        You (or better yet, your SO), picks up your favorite biscuits & your favorite gravy, then whips up the dinner of your dreams. As a bonus, you could pick up your favorite pie and favorite ice cream (for milkshake) for dessert.

                        My only suggestion as to where you *might* be able to have Biscuits and Gravy for dinner is Knotts Chicken Dinner Restaurant, I love their biscuits, could be worth a call to see if they have country gravy.

                        I hope you find what you're looking for. Good luck!

                          I would imagine she'll be able to find them somewhere for dinner, they probably just won't be the best versions around. But if timing is more important than tastiness, as it sounds to be here, than it sounds like there are plenty of options.

                          the only place that i can think of offhand that i *know* serves chicken, biscuits and gravy at dinner time is cheesecake factory. the chicken is really flattened, tender breasts, and the gravy a white peppered country gravy. the biscuits are buttery, but i think creamier than what you seek. and they're oval discs rather than circular fluffies.

                              wasn't worried - just explaining how the dish comes... you can order a side biscuit tho (to go if you like) w/ a side of gravy for like 3-5 bucks.

                        Home in Los Feliz comes to mind.....I could swear I've had Chicken Fried Steak & biscuits there.....but I don't see it on their online menu list. Good shakes and apple pie though...might call and ask them about the biscuits & gravy.

                        www.homelosfeliz.com

                        Or how about The Kettle in Manhattan Beach? They probably serve their biscuits n gravy 24/7....and you could sneak in a shake from Glacier ice Cream down the road.

                          You don't want to eat at HOME. Everything there is mediocre at best. Can't speak specifically to the biscuits/gravy thing but they're sure to be sub par given the fact that their entire menu is lackluster.

                              Yes, and I think they are very good. It definitely counts as one of my "naughty" foods. I usually get the chicken fried steak and eggs for breakfast or the country benedict which comes with eggs, biscuits, sausage and white, gooey gravy. I've never had either dish for dinner, but there's a good chance they serve breakfast all day.
