Lancsater/Palmdale restaurant suggestions provided

Happy to say the AV got some new restaurants since they decided to revamp Lancaster BLVD. I have yet to try these new places, but it looks like they opened BEX Grill, looks pretty nice inside, the menu and set up reminds me of Stonefire Grill. On the same street they also opend up Brooklyn Deli, typical deli fare, double deckers and whatnot...I hope its good because ive been craving a good deli. Theres also a new gourmet cupcake shop and a place called Lemon Leaf cafe. I cant wait to go to these places, I just hope some of the locals dont ruin in.

Broguiere's egg nog: Gelsons v Henry's Farm Markets

I payed 14 dollars for a couple of bottles at Stater Bros, im all the way in the Antelope Valley so it was a bargain considering i didnt have to drive to LA to get it....well worth it in my opinion.

BEST CHAIN CHEESESTEAKS?

I really wish i could go to philly and try an authentic one. Ive been to phillys best, its pretty good, i just wish they would season their meat. Jack in the box should bring theirs back, it was convienient, greasy, and it actually tasted pretty good!

Best fried chicken in LA? where is it?

I passed by about a year ago, id stay away. It was a run down donut shop with a Louisiana FC banner outside, it didnt look like they had any business frying or handling chicken.

Best fried chicken in LA? where is it?

If you feel like taking a trip into the ghetto and tipping the transient that held the door open for you, id have to say Louisiana fried chicken on Manchester, its just west of the 110. I cant even describe how hot and fresh the chicken is, especially then you eat it in the car!. Golden Bird is my second fave, but goodluck finding one that has consistantly good chicken,

Dare I ask...SIZZLER...has anyone tried this chain recently?

i go like twice a month...I recently moved about 70 miles north of LA and its hard to find good food where im at and honestly, Sizzler is the most consistant restaurant ive been too in the last year. Every time i go the service is great, my steak is cooked how i like it, and the salad bar is kept fresh and clean. I cant say that about any other chain ive visited in the last year. I always order the classic combo (steak, malibu chicken, butterflied fried shrimp) with the salad bar. I have not one complaint and i encourage you to give it a try

The Claim Jumper, are all chains like this???

They are VERY inconsistant. A year or so ago i went to one location near Knotts Berry farm and had the BEST rib eye i had had in a long time. Last month i went to a new location near my house and ordered the rib eye and a lobster tail on the side ( i had a good experience last time i went so i figured id order a bit more this time). My god it was horrible. The steak was boneless (they gave me a bone in at the other location), unseasoned, and tough, and my lobster tail was overcooked. I called and complained the next day and they replaced my order with two free entres. I got the Ore cart to go which is pork and beef ribs and1/4 chicken. I probably should have ordered that the first time around minus the beef bones, i mean ribs...they had no meat on them. Claim jumper was spot on when they first opened out here in CA in the 90's. They changed their menu in around 1999, the portions got smaller and the quality of food decreased. My mom says the chicken fried steak used to be the thing to order. Chains are hit and miss, we all know that a way better and cheaper meal can be cooked in the comfort of our own homes but lets face it, sometimes visiting a chain can be far more convenient. I had olive garden take out for dinner tonight and it was GREAT, but my last dine in meal there was crappy.

If you absolutely HAD to eat at Maggiano's (The Grove)....

The rigatoni D is actually really good. I usually get that with some calamari as an appetizer. Ive been there a hand full of times and i cant say that ive had a bad meal there....Alcohol could have played a role in this =]~

SYLMAR?

Carusos on Hubbard and foothill(i think its foothill but for sure hubbard) has great italian food. The best eats ive had out there are the street taco trucks, man they are to die for. 50 Cent tacos with fresh salsas and mexican coke.

Famous Dave's BBQ, any hounds ever been?

I finally tried it for the first time (Palmdale location)...Im definatly impressed. I got the st lous ribs and white meat chicken combo and my mom got the whole slab of st louis. The ribs were cooked perfect and had flavor in every bite. We also had the catfish strips as an appetizer, they were very fresh with a good flavor, no sauce needed. Finally i can get my BBQ fix a little closer to home, no more LA trips =] .

Food4Less... Am I Missing Something? [moved from L.A. board]

I was once afraid to shop at food 4 less as well, untill i was too lazy to go to another store to get some ground beef. WOW, is was a good quality and a very good price per pound. Out here in Lancaster non of the grocery stores sell skin on salmon except for food 4 less so i get salmon there too, very good quality and fresh.

Best of Santa Clarita and surrounds

I went there around 3 months ago and it was still good. If your ever in the Lancaster area check out SubMachine on ave J and 20th west, its like Final score but they use a softer bread and the prices are a little cheaper, its so good!

Hamburger Bun Frustrations

when i make homeade burgers i get the value kroger brand. they are simular to the in and out buns. The are ALWAYS fresh in the store and they are never over 98 cents for a 4 pack. I think they are way better then the huge dry boulders that orowheat or sara lee makes. they have the kroger brand in any ralphs or food for less

Your favorite/not so favorite discontinued items

Ah i was having flashbacks a second ago about particular fast food items that no longer exist. Particuarly Jack in the box. Anyone remember the chimichangas they used to have? i was addicted!...the philly cheesesteak was awesome too...how about the teriyaki bowls?. it seems like the stuff they sold back then is way better than what they are putting out now. Ugh remember when Mc donalds had hot dogs?...if i remember correctly they also had chicken wings? yuck. although they can bring back the FRIED apple pies...luckily i live in downey,CA theres one Mcdonalds that still carries them,burns your mouth everytime!

Going to Knott's Scary Farm, any nice places for dinner nearby?

A little off topic but just a warning...Get there super early,i mean like 2 hours before they re-open for scary farm. I bought tix for a saturday night last year and traffic was stopped all the way back to commerce, after sitting in traffic for 4 hours on the freeway and surface streets i get to the park and they oversold apparently because the wait times for the mazes were an hour+. Dont know how you feel about chains but the claim jumper down the street is always really good. Chicken dinner restaurant can be hit and miss for me sometimes. I went maybe 4 months ago and got the all white meat dinner and the chicken was really dry, my waitress said that they have to over cook the breasts so they could cook all the way,lol she brought me split breasts instead, it was waaaaaaaay better. Have fun, drink lots of boysenberry punch =]
