I've had DR -- love them, but they are sort of sweet. I've had Snookies, delivered -- they're pretty good. I like the chocolate chunk cookies from Il Tramezzino -- chunk, chip, what's the diff? I like that Galeta place in Westwood when DR is too crowded. The others -- I can't remember.
Anyone have a fave?

I think you have to qualify this by a very important distinction: Chewy or crispy. There are definitely two types of CCC lovers in the world and what would be a favorite of one would not necessarily be of the other. I LOVE Proof but think their CCC are just okay. I think DR's are atrocious. I'll qualify by saying I haven't had all the cookies on that list, but thus far I don't have any favorites in L.A. BUT, I am also a crispy cookie lover. Sometimes Le Pain Quotidian has amazing crisp CCC, but they seem to go stale incredibly quickly and I just as often get a terrible one as a wonderful one. Cheers!
TOTALLY agree - Clementine. They make it just the way I like it - thin, crispy on the outside, a bit gooey more towards the middle. And when you bite into a chip part, it's mostly melted rather than being a hard chip. And so so chewy!! mouth is watering just thinking about them...
Haven't had all these cookies, but I agree that Snookies is great.
I also like the chocolate chip cookies at Lady Di's Cookies in Valencia, and Wonderland Bakery in LA.
