Potato Salad in San Gabriel Valley?

Anyone know where I can find some good potato salad in the San Gabriel Valley, preferably made with mayo rather than mustard or vinegar. Thanks!

      AAAAYYYY-men to that. I'm a mayo guy, too, and this is some of the best lunch-counter potato salad I've ever had. Besides the excellent seasoning, the potatoes are cooked properly, neither mushy nor rubbery, which is not easy to do when you're making big quantities.

      If you're looking for some to take home, check out Bristol Farms. It's usually about that good, and they'll give you a taste to let you know what you're getting. Not cheap, but not bad.

    2. Gus' BBQ in South Pasadena. Excellent mayo-type with a hint of bacon. I believe the LA Times might have mentioned it in a "Best of L.A. list". They're right.

      1. Alright, I'm going to get haters on this one, but I LOVE potato salad. And my favorite? Ralphs deli sliced potato salad. I'm sure there is a Ralphs somewhere in the S G Valley. Just try a sample. It's really tasty.

        1. I haven’t been there in over a year, but I seem to recall The Pasadena Sandwich Company as having really good potato salad. And I prefer mayo over mustard style.
