        +1 Flossie's, but it's hard not ordering the fried chicken there...

          agree. Great Fried Chicken and Ox-tail on weekends.

          1. Mom's in Van Nuys.

            1. Mel's fish shack on Jefferson at Farmdale. They were the first place I have ever been to which asked me how I wanted it fried, soft medium or hard. It was delicious.
