Looking for best fried chicken in the San Fernando Valley

Hi Chowhounds,

I'm having a pool party and I'm very lazy. Would like to pick up some great fried chicken to serve with potato salad.

Most fried chicken recommendations are on the west side. I'm in Studio City. Any thoughts?

  1. I'm still sayin' Mom"s on Vanowen/Hazeltine is the best. It's well seasoned. I love their creamy potato salad. If you go, tell them "Bob" (the ol' geezer) sent you.

    1. Call up Aaron Robins, owner of the Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks, on Ventura 2 blocks east of Woodman. He makes a very good potato salad, as well as some of the best fried chicken you can imagine. Tell him how many people, and have him give you a price, picked up or delivered, your choice.
      It won't be the cheapest, but it will be good!

        Hi carter,

        I'm still trying to find a chance to try their Fried Chicken (thanks to you :). Is it still only Monday Nights, or did they add it on additional nights with their new expansion? Thanks.

        1. re: exilekiss

          Fried chicken on Mondays and fried chicken tacos on Tuesdays... both are excellent!!

      2. Why not try 'em both. See which one you like better, then choose. Carter is right; you will pay more at the Bistro.

        1. Miss Peaches soul food on Lankershim, just north of Burbank. Not the best friend chicken in the world, but decent. Call to make sure they're open. Sometimes they shut down unexpectantly when they're catering.

            Hit off Miss Peaches today for lunch based on this rec. Very good fried chicken. Not the best (maybe not even the best in the SFV) but if you find yourself on Lankersheim it's a great place to stop in. Very friendly proprietress - If I had to guess I'd say it was Miss Peaches herself.

            I would have asked but I was too busy eating.

          2. I concur with both Mom's and Boneyard Bistro... both are great choices. Boneyard's additional item that draws me there is their incredible baked beans that are second to none. I normally pass on baked beans at most places because they usually disappoint but Boneyard's is in a class by itself.

                Bob - I'll treat you so you can find out!
                And I really don't love beans - I really like the cole slaw and the collard greens of the four sides available.

                1. re: carter

                  The baked beans at Boneyard are made with a thick, homemade whiskey sauce and it has smoked brisket pieces chopped into it.

                  To be honest, I've never tried the baked beans at Mom's so I can't really compare the two places based on that item.

                  1. re: mrshankly

                    Judging from your description, I don't think Mom's beans would make the cut. Boneyard sounds fabulous.

                  2. re: carter

                    Trust me, carter, mrshankly's description of BB beans far surpasses Mom's beans. Mom's slaw is good and the potato salad is creamy, which I prefer. Haven't tried the greens yet.
