RE: Fried Pickles
Genny's Diner in Louisville has a large Burger and uses "Frickles" for side garnish. Frickles are battered dill pickle slices deep fried. The are delicious!
Here is part of a review by a local food writer about Genny's Pickles...
*** Genny's Diner
2223 Frankfort Ave.
What's the difference between Genny's Diner and a saloon?
You can take the kids to Genny's.
Well, that, and better still, you can actually count on getting a pretty darn good meal at Genny's, provided that you set your expectations for hearty, filling and well-prepared diner food without gourmet touches or culinary frippery.
We're talking about serious meat-and-potatoes food here, heavy on the frying: Remember, this is the place that invented the frickled pickle chip, a crunchy dill-pickle slice lightly coated with egg-batter and deep-fried in oil. (We couldn't help but notice, off to the north side of Genny's little white building in Clifton, an oblong black vessel the size of a Volkswagen, devoted to the disposal of used cooking oil. It appeared to be in regular use.)
Enter Genny's dark, cozy interior and the first thing you'll see is a large bar, where the gentleman presiding will greet you with a friendly wave and direct you to one of the many sturdy tables draped in green. The menu is straightforward, featuring mostly burgers, breakfast fare and sandwiches. Take special note of the Sweet Daddy Platter ($9.50 with fries, $9 for the burger alone), a trademark entree that features a stunning 1 1/4 pound of ground beef formed into a triple-deck hamburger that easily qualifies as the largest in town....
