I think perhaps the driest chicken I have ever had. The garlic sauce on the side was good, though.

Editorial review from Citysearch 2/7/2014

Zhankhou always had great roasted chicken. The servers at this location are nice. The toasted pita bread they give you is good. I receommend getting the more toasted one. Also ask for garlic sauce! more

Soooooo, Very Good! 12/14/2007

I would highly recommend Zankou, the chicken is always just perfect and the portions are generous. The ethnic foods of LA are one of reasons that traffic is tolerable. Zankou stands out for it?s simple and yet perfect menu. From high school kids to film raters J (This Film Is Not Yet Rated) to working professionals there is something for everyone. I visit the Zankou in Glendale, one of the originals, so the decor is not great and it is really a get it and go type place, but the parking is fair and there is a great bakery in the same center. I would say try it today, you will not be disappointed! more

Zankou is good for you!! 11/15/2007

We've been frequenting this great chicken place for more than 15 years. Before they started sprouting up all over Los Angeles, this was one of the originals. Who can say no to hot roasted chicken that melts in your mouth and that garlic sauce/spread stuff. Not sure why people would go anywhere else for roasted chicken. It's definitely the best. The atmosphere here is like any of the others, very take-out. But the staff is always friendly. Pros: great chicken, decent parking more

Chicken & garlic sauce lives up to the hype 2/14/2007

Many of my friends have sang the praises for Zankou chicken and it's well deserved. While many customers opt for the half chicken served with pita bread and pickles, my favorite is the chicken tarna wrap: perfectly marinated chicken nestled with the restaurant's signature creamy garlic sauce in a toasty pita. All chicken is roasted on a-spit inhouse which gives it a crispy skin and a deliciously moist texture. The garlic sauce is the real reason to visit Zankou, I've never tasted anything quite like it. This location is in the same plaza as the Baklava Factory, be sure to swing by to complete your Middle Eastern dining experience. Pros: Great food, Parking Lot, Quick Service Cons: Ambience, Crowded more

Yummy fast food.... addicting garlic sauce 11/17/2006

We always joke that we all have to eat at Zankou together so that all of us can tolerate the smell like garlic together. Zankou's garlic sauce is sooo good, but you will smell like garlic for at least 4 hours or so. The roasted chicken is moist and very flavorful, but it is on the fatty side. I would recommend the tarna or shwarma if you like your meat a little leaner. Sandwiches are filling and their plates are big enough to share or for two meals. Make sure to ask for extra pita bread so that you can eat it with the garlic sauce. Pros: Fast fast service Cons: Ambience more

Absolutely Addicting! 8/20/2005

I stumbled upon the Hollywood location of Zankou chicken one rainy night and it has been one of my most fortuitous L.A. finds! The Chicken Tarna plate is so good I have to restrain myself from eating it twice a day. Their hummus, tahini, salad, and chicken make up the best combination you will find in Los Angeles. But add their garlic sauce and you suddenly have the best Mediterranean food in the country. Pros: awesome food, quick service, inexpensive Cons: small parking lot more

Most scrumptuous chicken! 5/4/2005

The chicken here is always tender and moist and the garlic that they give to go with it rocks! The meals are always filling and I've never been disappointed. Pros: Yummy, Fast Cons: Plain Ambience more

The best 7/13/2003

Parev (Translation: Hello) friends, his place has the best beef that I have ever had! Ever since my Armenian friend who took me here once, I have been eating here as much as I can! Anyway, just make sure you finish the pita bread (because it's not fun for a worker to be angry at you over), and I would recommend buying the garlic sauce which makes it all the more delicious! Pros: Food, Service Cons: Waiting in line, (but worth it), Parking more

Not bad, but not the best.... 7/3/2002

I've been here twice and I can only rate this place as okay. It may have been an 'off' day when I tried the chicken but mine was dry. The other time I went I had the falafel. It was better then the chicken but still not the best I've had. The place is always crowded though, so there are lots of people that like this place. I am a fussy eater so don't take my word for it until you try it yourself. more

Yummy 5/15/2002

This is one of those can't miss dinner places. You run in, grab an entire roasted chicken, some pitas and hummus, and you've got one fantastic meal for your family. Don't forget the unbelievable garlic paste. Pros: Garlic Paste, Chicken more
