Passing under the bright neon sign proclaiming the corner as Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken is a right of passage for anyone stepping into the neighborhood. The checkered table clothes set the mood for the friendly picnic-esque dinner you’ve gotten yourself into while the glass of lemonade perfectly compliments the dark and white combo platter you’re about to be served. Trade off between bites of perfectly crisp chicken and pieces of fried okra while chatting with the friendly waiter and other folks hanging out. When you’ve felt like you’ve become family you’ll be ready to say “see you next time” and indulge on ice cream treats.
Alternative: Down the street is maybe the best Italian you've never heard of in LA, Pasta Sister's. If that's your vibe go there but beware, the lines can be very long.
