A huge piece of fried Jidori chicken, duck breast ham and spicy pimento cheese piled high on a bun that barely holds it all together as you pick it up. Knife and fork it if you have to, because this is a standout on an exceptional menu. 1800 Sawtelle Blvd., West L.A., (310) 288-6500

Son of a Gun
A seafood-centric hotspot, where interestingly enough, the shining star has become the unforgettable fried chicken sandwich. It’s good for sharing, but you won’t want to, so order double down. 8370 W. 3rd St., L.A., (323) 782-9033

Steingarten L.A.
Sure, there’s a tempting menu of unique sausages here that’s hard to look past, but take a chance on the pan-fried chicken schnitzel sandwich topped with caramelized onions, melted Parmesan cheese and served on a pretzel roll. You won’t regret it. 10543 W Pico Blvd., West L.A., (310) 441-0441
