LAX Spotting - Dinah's Fried Chicken vs. In-N-Out

If you're spotting at LAX, In-N-Out is ok. But the better play is to go to Dinah's.

Shown is the classic plate with creamed spinich and mashed.

Dinah's has been there for 50 years, and has sold a hundred million pieces of chicken.

Trust Airplane Life on this.
