great Fried Chicken, southern or american style...

  • k

Places I've already tried and you don't need to mention: Aunt Kizzy's, Flossie's, Bertha's, Chef Marilyn's (although on a tangential note which do you like the best???).

Also, don't include buffalo wings and no on Popeye's and el Polla Compero (?, I mean the Guatemelan fried chicken chain)...

Also, any price range... If it's even at a fancy restaurant that will still do, but I thought that the shake n bake or is it panko-fried chicken at Huckleberry in Santa Monica was beyond terrible (even though many have sung the praises of that joint, though I do have to admit that their yellow cake with chocolate buttercream frosting is especially amazing) and it's price to quantity and quality ratio is the best deal there, at 5 dollars a slice, i believe all the tea cakes there are at least 4 bucks a slice and pretty crappy).

thanks all.

and if anyone has any info, that maurice snack n chat has resurfaced, please let me know.

  1. Give Pann's a try. Either the 1/2 fried chicken dinner or my favorite, the 6 wings and waffle combo.

        1. re: cdub

          I'm not certain. We almost always go on Saturday night (once in a while on Friday night).

          1. re: Servorg

            Did they ever offer all you can eat? I know Dinah's, which is about a mile or two away, offers an all you can eat fried chicken night.

            1. re: reality check

              They had been offering one, one of the mid-week nights. But I don't know which night and I'm not sure it's still going on, or not.

              1. re: Servorg

                Last year, Pann's had AYCE Fried Chicken and French Fries in the early evenings weekdays (it ended at 7:00pm). I took advantage of this deal a couple of times. I'm not sure if this deal is still available.

              2. re: reality check

                I would not recommend Dinah's at all. Bad crust and seasoning. The meat was somewhat juicy, what there was of it. In that area, I'd go for Pann's.

                I really liked the coating and seasoning of the chicken wings at the serving spoon. It's too bad I didn't like the meat to crust ratio. If they had other fried chicken besides the wings and with the same crust and seasoning, I'd be all over it.

        2. Some like Honey's Kettle in Culver City which is exclusively a fried chicken place. Not sure if the service has picked up.

            Honey's Kettle, either location is fine with me.

            Never had any kind of issue with service.

            1. re: Norm Man

              I've been to both locations of Jim Dandy and the Vermont location serves fresher chicken. Maybe they get higher volume, so they are frying chicken all the time. But, I've gotten so very dry pieces from the Manchester location.

            2. The Best Crispy Chicken is at Sur on Robertson. It is partially owned by one of the Housewives of Beverly HIlls (Lisa). The food is excellent for this relatively resonably priced restaurant in West Hollywood

                1. re: maudies5

                  is the ivy fried chicken really great and should i follow it with a hot fudge sundae for dessert or what other dessert?

                  and to start a mint julep?

                  1. re: kevin

                    Start with a vodka gimlet (fresh limes), the fried chicken is that great. Portion is enormous so plan on having chicken for lunch the next day. Hot fudge sundae is my favorite sundae anywhere.. Order those 3 things and you will be happy guy.

                2. re: viapapale

                  sur??? i've never even heard of this restaurant. do you happen to have further details?

                3. Anyone have anything to say about the fried chicken at Eva's? We are still trying to get over there to try it. I know they offer it on Sunday nights. And they had an all you can eat deal (and all the beer you could drink along with the fried chicken), but I'm not sure if they are still doing it - and if they are what night it's on.

                  1. re: Servorg

                    I forgot to mention I had it. Sorta liked it, at least for the first three pieces, but the last three or four pieces it just diidn't work for me. i wouldn't say it's great in general. maybe ok to a little better than ok, on my first three pieces. it is a weird deal, all you can eat fried chicken and beer for 25 buckaroos. the beer served from a keg and brought in a plastic dixie cup and the chicken served in disposable paper basket. No fine culterey, or white tablelecloth on this evening. And i think your napkings is a roll of paper towels on the table. it would be great if they happen to do a themed night a la a crawfish boil.

                    1. re: kevin

                      1. About a year ago Eva's started doing the fried chicken / beer thing on Tuesdays, but I don't know if they are still doing it; as far as I can see it's not mentioned on the website. The chicken is mighty good.

                      2. Servorg, Eva's doesn't serve the fried chicken EVERY Sunday; the menu varies from week to week. In my experience, whatever they serve for the Sunday dinner is terrific, and at $39 including wine (and so far it has always been good wine, not cheap crap) and seconds or thirds on the food items, it is a huge bargain. Plus it is about the friendliest restaurant around.

                      1. re: ozhead

                        Paul Martin has fried chicken every Sunday. I heard it's good and worth the + $20 price tag.
