  1. I have heard that there's a bar on SE Division (around SE 24th, I think) called Reel'm Inn that is supposed to have good chicken and jo-jos. Not sure if the chicken is broasted or not, though. And I've never been (not a fan of jojo's nor cig. smoke) so make sure and report back if you go!

      Hi. I popped into Reel'em in and am sad to report that they do not have broasted chicken. Sorry.

    2. Sounds like you might like the chicken-jo jos combo at Fryer Tuck's, between Multnomah and Hillsdale on Capitol Hwy. I'm not sure if the chicken is broasted, but it sure is delicious - with a hint of rosemary. You might have a drink in the bar ("Cider Mill") while you wait.

        You drank to much beer. This place sucked, no flavor. Try Creekside pizza in Seaside. Still looking in Portland. Jo's Saloon also sucks... very small, and expensive $3.35 per breast. Let you know......................

      2. Hey, you learn something new every day. I always thought that the term "broast" was an amalgamation of "broil" and "roast" and didn't really mean anything. From what I can find on the web, however, "broasted" is a registered trademark of the Broaster company, which sells specialized equipment to the food service industry. Fortunately for us, they have a store locator on their website ( When I plug in a Portland-area zip code this is what I get:

          Very interesting. I have friends who love the Pink Feather, but I do love Fryer Tuck's when I want chicken and jo jos!

              2 places in Spokane: Swinging Door and Maxwell's, but that won't help you in Portland. Had it for lunch...mmmm.

              1. re: dragonfare

                Swinging Doors broasted chicken is ALWAYS too done; overcooked. Will try Maxwell's.

                1018 W Francis Ave, Spokane, WA 99205

        2. If you are okay with a little drive, try Boston's Pub and Grill in Wilsonville - they've got some awesom Broasted Chicken and Jo-Jos....of course, I think their unique battered fries are even better than their JoJos....
