Old School In The Best Way. Going here is like stepping back in time. I feel the decor may not have been changed in decades, but it's clean. The fried chicken is why you should come. Everything else is fine, but for a change of pace from the chain chicken places, it's Dinah's all the way.
Dinah's is a great "retro-style" experience.
It's kitschy and cute. They have mini-pies that are delicious.
Muuuch better than KFC!!!!
Great Chicken n Shrimp. Dinah's is definitely a favorite place of mine. I'm a fried chicken lover, and this place ranks at the top of my list. Not too greasy and good flavor! I'm not a fan of their fried fish, or their gizzards, but their shrimp...wow, if you haven't tried them, you should- they won't dissapoint. Their sides are ok, but it's the other stuff that makes me come back, again and again.
Terrible First Experience.
I've been living within 2 miles of this restaurant for the last 20 plus years; never tried them before -- the place never attracted me. End of 2007, Glendale News Press published Glendale?s best businesses, etc. and Dinah's were listed as one of the best. A week later I gave them a try; walked in, put in my order for about 5 people -- spent close to $29.00; took the food home very excited to eat the best. It was a burned, soggy, chicken parts, the fish sticks .. fishy and no great taste; the shrimps OK. One of the chicken boxes had a curly hair inside. It was a disgusting experience. I'll never go their, ever again.
Very very disappointed
Editorial Review. Small Glendale diner serves retro American food, including signature fried chicken, plus sides like pineapple coleslaw, mac and cheese, more.
Little Miss Sunshine loves it!!. If it's good enough for Little Miss Sunshine it's good enough for me. I saw the bucket on the dinner table in the Movie. The next time I'm in Southern Cal it will be the first on my must eat places! I have eaten more fried chicken than most people on the planet, and consider myself a fried chicken expert
Great chicken, tasy, simple and homey. Love this place. I lived in LA for several years before moving to Nor. Calif and I always try to eat here when I can. Its a wonderfully simple place to get something that tastes homemade and delicous. I love the location and the decor. We most often ordere the food for take out - for work or family get togethers. The coleslaw is great and the pineapple potato salad is a refreshing version. Check it out, you wont be disappointed.
Great food; great service. This is some of the best fried chicken in LA. I don't eat in there too often - only due to time; the dining area seems very clean and bright. They have many to-go combos to choose from. For sides, I recommend the mac & cheese and the mashed potatoes. The staff are always friendly as well. There are other locations, but this one's mine!
The chicken lived up to expectations.. Even though the two restaurants have different owners, the chicken recipe of the two Dinah's restaurants are the same, and it is good. This Dinah's has a very simple menu, and many of the patrons that I talked to said that they've been coming for years. The chicken is definitely some of the best I've tasted in Southern California. The apple butter for the rolls was delicious as well. I wasn't quite enamored with the pineapple cole slaw or other side dishes, but one cannot go wrong with such great chicken. I'll be coming back to this place for sure.
FINGURE LICKING GOOD. THE CHICKEN IS THE BEST, I HAVE LIVED IN THE AREA FOR 20+ YEARS AND CAN'T LIVE WITOUT IT.
