LOOKING FOR AUTHENTIC SOUTHERN HUSHPUPPIES AS CLOSE TO VENTURA AS POSSIBLE
I hope you find them nearby, but the best hushpuppies I've had in Southern California are far from Ventura. They're at the Johnny Rebs' Southern Roadhouse. (See: http://johnnyrebs.com/ for locations.) Decent BBQ but very good collards and excellent hushpuppies. Be sure to get them warm.
