Fried pickles (spears) and fried pies

roz | Jan 22, 2009 09:14 PM

My SO and I just returned from a holiday road trip in the South, and he's become obsessed with finding good fried pickles and fried fruit pies in the LA metro area. I searched the LA board, and came up with the following possibilities for fried pickles:

8 oz
The Counter
Beachwood BBQ
Monty's in Woodland Hills
Johhny Rebs'
OC fair (ask for pickles to be fried at Corn Dog booth)

Here's my questions:

--Do any of these places (other than the OC fair) offer fried pickle spears -usually, about a quarter or third of the whole pickle -- rather than chips? In our travels, we never had them served as chips.

--Which of the places have the best food other than the pickles? My sense was that Beachwood BBQ was a clear favorite, but I thought I'd check again.

--Any place in the Los Angeles metro area where you can get fried fruit pies? I checked the desserts on a few of the Southern-style restaurants on the board, but I couldn't seem to find any.
