I tried Paty's last night and was happy with what I ordered--the broasted chicken dinner for around $9.00. You get a full meal--choice of soup or salad, dinner roll, mashed potatoes (or rice, or baked potato), coleslaw, and 1/2 a chicken. I was surprised at how nicely cooked the chicken was--crispy on the outside, flavorful, and hot and juicy inside. The mashed potatoes were very good too as was the coleslaw. Oh, and the soup was also good--I chose the chicken noodle--lots of noodles, carrots, chunks of chicken and the broth was tasty without being overly salty (other choices were tomato and split pea).
As a kid, I used to go to a great broasted chicken place in Monterey Park (YEARS ago) and could never seem to find another restaurant that served such fare so well. By the way, on Mon/Wed and Thurs(?) Paty's gives you a $2 discount on this particular dinner.
