Going here is like stepping back in time. I feel the decor may not have been changed in decades, but it's clean. The fried chicken is why you should come. Everything else is fine, but for a change of pace from the chain chicken places, it's Dinah's all the way.
I like Dinah's chicken. It really doesn't seem greasy, and it tastes great. It's great when we don't have time to cook dinner and I can just stop by there real quick to pick up chicken to go. We never order any side dishes so I can't comment on those, but the chicken is delicious!
Heard some good things about this place so I thought I would bring home one of the family meals. Ten pieces of chicken and two pint size sides. We got mash potatoes with gravy and coleslaw. The chicken was juicy but the flavor was light. Not like KFC or Roscoe's, where there is more flavor in the batter. The coleslaw was good, it has pineapple that adds nice flavor, but there were too many pieces so the texture and tanginess became overwhelming. The mash potatoes were clearly potato flakes, so nothing special there. Gravy was the white kind and good. Overall, when in the mood for fried chicken, there's better places to go.

Dinah's is definitely a favorite place of mine. I'm a fried chicken lover, and this place ranks at the top of my list. Not too greasy and good flavor! I'm not a fan of their fried fish, or their gizzards, but their shrimp...wow, if you haven't tried them, you should- they won't dissapoint. Their sides are ok, but it's the other stuff that makes me come back, again and again.

I've been living within 2 miles of this restaurant for the last 20 plus years; never tried them before -- the place never attracted me. End of 2007, Glendale News Press published Glendale?s best businesses, etc. and Dinah's were listed as one of the best. A week later I gave them a try; walked in, put in my order for about 5 people -- spent close to $29.00; took the food home very excited to eat the best. It was a burned, soggy, chicken parts, the fish sticks .. fishy and no great taste; the shrimps OK. One of the chicken boxes had a curly hair inside. It was a disgusting experience. I'll never go their, ever again.
Very very disappointed

If it's good enough for Little Miss Sunshine it's good enough for me. I saw the bucket on the dinner table in the Movie. The next time I'm in Southern Cal it will be the first on my must eat places! I have eaten more fried chicken than most people on the planet, and consider myself a fried chicken expert
