Included In

There are dozens of Southern-style fish fry spots across South LA, but the one that’s at the top of our cornmeal-crusted seafood list when the craving hits is CW & Chris Fish & Chicken. Open since 1992, this no-frills takeout spot offers a whole ocean of options—we’re particularly fans of the sanddabs, shrimp, and sole—dredged and fried to order. The coating is well-seasoned and crispy, while the fish stays tender and flaky inside. Meals come with sides of things like hush puppies, collard greens, coleslaw, or fries. And in case you forgot the second half of their name, they do great fried chicken and buffalo wings, too.
