Looking for Broasted Chicken...

I have a very fond memory of eating Broasted Chicken at a funky little country style restaurant in King's Beach (Lake Tahoe) as a kid... Anyone know of a place near Auburn, Oakland or San Jose? Willing to travel a ways if necessary :)

  1. Folks, please keep your suggestions focused on the SF Bay area. We define that as the counties that touch the SF Bay.

    For Auburn, Lake Tahoe, and points beyond the Bay Area, please respond to epicurgirl's post on the California board:

    1. re: The Chowhound Team

      Haven't tried it but

      Dipuccio Catering and Pasta Shop
      4710 Meridian Ave
      San Jose, CA 95118

      Broasted Chicken
      695 E 14th St
      San Leandro, CA 94577 (ok ... between SJ & Oakland

      Please report back if you try them.

    2. There's a place on Broadway in Oakland (near 51st or therabouts, in the little strip across the street from Oakland Tech and near Burger King) that has a sign that says broasted chicken. I've never been, but I drive by it all the time.

      1. Spivey's restaurants in circa-1960 San Jose used to say "Home of the Original Broasted Chicken."

        Spivey's, more like large 50's era coffee shops, used to be all over SJ. Never ate at one except out by Valley Fair shopping center. I think this family business is long gone.

        1. what is a broasted chicken?

          1. There's a Broasted Chicken in WestLake shopping center, near Trader Joes. Been there since before the remodel.
