Gotta Eat! Dinah's Family Restaurant
establishment that is apparently a historical landmark in Los Angeles. The inside is pure vintage and surprisingly spacious. A chalkboard listed the day's specials with All You Can Eat Spaghetti, Strogonoff or Ribs along with you know, regular sized portions. After to-ing and fro-ing, 2/3 of the party decided to go for it and get the AYCE pork ribs. While waiting, we received two kinds of bread to start but I had to refrain from eating it all because I needed to leave room for meat. I opted for fries and broccoli to attempt to get some fiber in today and soon a rack of beautiful meat goodness was presented to me. The first rack was Damme tasty, not the best ribs I ever had but certainly not the worst. Our server, who was great, didn't want us to wait and brought out another half rack and soon the meat sweats started but I burned right through the first rack and into the half. I called it a day after 1 1/2 racks then tried some of the famous fried chicken which was very tasty. Nicely seasoned with crispy skin and the breast meat was very juicy. I could have used some froyo to finish my meal but it just wasn't meant to be. After the meal, my other AYCE co-worker was headed straight into a food coma but I felt surprisingly excellent and named my meat baby Elroy.
