Traditional Fresh Turkey Dinner, now in August?

Where might we find a great traditional fresh turkey dinner, you know with mashed potatoes, gravy, and stuffing, now at the end of August. Preferable mid-wilshire to westside. Thanks.

  1. Clifton's Cafeteria?

    A little closer to the westside, there's always Junior's.

      While I appreciate the idea of Cliftons because we used to eat at the one in Century City, and loved it, the one downtown just doesn't do it for us, not to mention the clientele is a little strange some time. Now Juniors, hadn't thought of that. Thanks.

      1. Panns has it on the menu. $11.95, w/ cornbread stuffing, cranberry sauce, etc. I also think that Nichols in Marina del Rey serves it.

            I just had the ROASTED TURKEY dinner Smothered with Rich Brown Gravy Served with Homemade Cranberry Sauce & Cornbread Stuffing and two sides
            (I had collard greens and mashed potaots) at Pann's and it was wonderful. Comfort food grand slam and under $12 bucks!

              Okay, that's AWESOME.

              Generally you can also get it at Tam o'Shanter, in Los Feliz, but trust me, it's not under $12!

        1. Koo Koo Roo in Santa Monica has a traditional handcarved turkey dinner with all the trimmings for $10.25.
          Or if you make it over the hill to the Valley Brent's Deli has a very good Hot Roasted Turkey with Stuffing Served with Yams, Gravy and Coleslaw $15.95

            I sometimes forget about KKR because they closed the two I used to go to. Thanks.

          2. Ronnie's Diner has a a special.

            Roll'n'Rye does an open-faced sandwich, as does Kate Mantilini.
            I will not suggest Jerry's Deli. though they offer both plate and sandwich.

            1. Callender's Wilshire, by the LaBrea Tar Pits, 5773 Wilshire. They have a traditional turkey dinner on the menu, quite good!
