Give thanks for this comforting classic any time with this Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of comfort fare at Dinah's Chicken in Glendale.
Since 1967, Dinah's Chicken has served a fresh, golden-fried menu of crispy chicken, savory fish, and homestyle sides. Three-piece chicken dinners ($8.75) offer up the piping-hot trio accompanied by a roll, apple butter, and two sides, such as bean salad or mac 'n' cheese. Jumbo boxes ($10.44) escort hulking hungers off the premises by upgrading to 5 pieces of the scrumptious fried fowl, and the family special ($20.78) packs in 10 pieces and two medium sides for a feast that can easily feed four hungry kinfolk or one peckish house gator. Quarts of mashed potatoes and gravy ($4.51) call upon spoons to relieve hands from their hen-hauling duties, and fish and shrimp dinners ($10.75 and $11.85 respectively) allow diners to finally get a taste of the fabled deep-fried fruits of the sea.
Dinah's renowned chicken entices taste buds with a two-part cooking process that begins with pressure-cooking to lock in moisture and finishes off with deep-frying to make the outside golden brown and crispy. Owned and operated by the Pearson family since 1967, the established eatery sates patrons' appetites with its signature chicken, which pairs well with honey-smothered rolls and lots of happy closed-eye chewing. Other soul-warming sides keep the chicken company on dinner plates, including mashed potatoes, fries, corn on the cob, and pineapple coleslaw.
The desserts are good. The staff is friendly. I always go for the chicken.Rod D., Yelp, 12/12/11
