Genna Rae's is not the kind of restaurant that charges $30 for dinner while claiming to be a neighborhood restaurant just because there's a community table set up in the dining room. In fact, this takeout-only storefront in Whittier doesn't claim to be a neighborhood place at all. It doesn't have to, because it's obvious to even the most casual observer that this is the truest, simplest iteration of a neighborhood joint. Owner Genn Dickerson knows his customers and what they like: wings with hot, honey hot or honey barbecue sauce; a monster ten-ounce burger for under $10; spicy Southern greens with mac and cheese; and perfectly crispy fried fish. Have a seat on one of the three barstools while you wait for your order, chat with the incredibly friendly staff, then come back again and again.
