Thanks!! I'll try that. (No one seems to love Canters anymore, but my Mom does, so she is not that particular.) She might love this.

It's just that the Billys in Torrance doesn't serve the dish my Mom wants.
I've gone to Jerrys in Studio City. But if I'm going to drive my mom all that way, I'd just take her to Canters.

Thanks for all the replies. I know about Brents and Langers, etc.
I was just hoping for something closer to Torrance.

Actually, the last time I took my Mom, (a long time ago) the one in Glendale at least served chicken in the pot which wasn't bad. When I called the one in Torrance, they didn't even know what it was. And when I looked on the menu they had CHEESE BREAD!! And they served fried chicken with BUTTERMILK Batter!!!! OY.

When I worked in the area I used to always go there for turkey wings.
That was a long time ago. It's just so far from Pacific Coast Highway in Torrance.

The Torrance Billys doesn't even know what "chicken in the pot" is.

I read some comments on New York Deli. It seems the best choice without traveling 20 miles.
I never heard of Billys (except the awful one in Glendale).
My Mom doesn't care about pastrami, so if New York Deli doesn't work,
I'll make the drive to Canters. She loves the chicken/beef in a pot.
And, whenever I go there I order their broiled salmon, which is superior. (surprising for
a deli). Although it doesn't have fancy sauce or prep; it is fresh tasting and delicious.
(It's as good as the salmon steak was at Musso and Frank's before they changed to filet of salmon). So, we always leave happy.

Thanks for the honesty. I think someone would make a lot of money opening up
such a place down there.

My Mom is moving from Florida and the only place she ever
wants to eat is at Canters. She is 87 and no matter where I take her
she never likes the food (although she did like the rack of lamb at Musso and Franks).

She will be moving near my sister in Torrance (PCH) near Palos Verdes. The only
place I heard of that was passable was the New York(er?) Deli on Sepulveda.

Is there any other? Must have good chicken in the pot/matzoa ball soup, and good corn rye.
