I ordered the new menu items waffles with fried chicken, it was okay. The small restaurant feels like your in grandma's country kitchen. The chicken was perfectly cooked but lacked a great seasoning which just made it taste average. I've had this combination of items at other restaurants like... read more

The chicken was perfectly cooked but lacked a great seasoning which just made it taste average. I've had this combination of items at other restaurants like Roscoe's which is much better.

The chicken was moist and juicy. The skin was perfectly seasoned and just a little crunchy. I have had fried chicken in a LOT of places and this was up there with the very, very best. Great service, too, very friendly. If you are anywhere near this place, you MUST try it.

I grew up eating at Dinah's. It's a neighborhood fixture and outside of Mrs. Knotts, it is my favorite place to get fried chicken. Don't be put off by the exterior. Dinah's is located in a crowded mini-mall and it's a bit of a dive. There is nothing fancy here. You come for the food. I live close, so I... More

I was expecting a restaurant whose quality of food and service was as legendary as it bills itself. It was really nothing much more than one of those 70's subpar places that caters more to night owls and diners on a budget. All the cliches are there: instant mashed potatoes, bad rolls, tv sitcom service and tired decor. The one... More

Simple, but good. The menu is basically just the different combos of fish, chicken, or sides you can get. Chicken is perfectly breaded. Crisp on the outside, but the meat itself (even white meat, which I usually find dry) is perfectly moist. The sides are great too. As odd as it sounds, you have to try their pineapple coleslaw. It's... More

You won't want to eat at KFC after eating at Dinah's. Really juicy and it IS chicken. I think KFC may have gone to miny chickens or perhaps pidgeon because unless they are serving baby chickens (ala veal) something is not right with the size. Not so at Dinah's, nice BIG pieces. I've been coming to Dinah's for years and... More

Dinah's chicken is certainly not the BEST fried chicken I've had - but it's still good! Hardly any breading but when my plate arrived the chicken was HOT and very crunchy. Served with pineapple cole slaw and a biscuit - an excellent lunch!

I am a Florida redneck, but have lived on and off in LA for 20 years. Dinah's is where me and my friends go. Served hot, fresh, and yes, greasy, (the way great fried chicken ought to be.) Add good biscuits & apple butter, cole slaw... you have entered CHICKEN HEAVEN! This stuff is tasty like your (redneck) mother used... More
