best soul food, favorite quick stop
CItysearch Editorial Review. Authentic, tasty soul food can be a difficult find in Los Angeles. But when it comes to this grab-and-go Southern grub haven, the fried chicken, mac-and-cheese and collard greens surpass the mark. The food here is so well-known among Crenshaw locals that after just one taste, they line up around the block for seconds and thirds. The restaurant is set up like a tiny cafeteria minus the tables. Entrees like short ribs, smothered chicken and ham hocks steam behind glass panels, encompassed by stark white walls. In lieu of the skimpy decorated scene, 99-cent specials on items like fried chicken legs and mashed potatoes keep the place packed, and soulful desserts like banana pudding and peach cobbler satiate the sweet tooth.
Worth Getting A Heart Attack Over!. Chef Marilyn's Place has the best Soul Food in Los Angeles. Although it's a hole-in-the-wall and there is only one table available inside, it's definitely worth the trip. Her mac and cheese is so unbelievably creamy and the deep fried catfish is to die for! It's always great to top your meal off with some collards and her mash potatos with a choice of 3 gravies! Aside from the taste, Chef Marilyn's is very light on the wallet. It's takeout buffet style. Also if you are crazy for cobbler this is your place! This is not for those who are on a diet, have high cholesterol! Just walking in the door you'll gain 5 pounds...
