Any suggestions for a great whole roast chicken or BBQ chicken to bring home in west hollywood or the westside

I have tried Whole Foods chickens and they are really tasteless. Suggestions for a good quality chicken tastefully prepared would be very much appreciated. Anyone taste the prepared chickens from Gelsons or Bristol Farms?

  1. Gelson's is good. Try it.

    1. Monday Plummer park Farmers Marker- Fountain/Vista. Delicious rotisserie chicken.

      1. When I have to bring whole roast chicken home for dinner I think that California Chicken Cafe is FAR superior to any supermarket chicken. Plus, the roasted onions/potatoes are really tasty!

          CCC ootatoes are indeed excellent (I also love the cabbage salad) but I don't agree that the chicken itself is so much better than what's available at supermarkets.

        2. california chicken has a great and affordable roasted chicken to bring home, great sides to.

          1. What about the roast chicken at Costco? You get a jumbo roast chicken for $5.99 that is really quite good.
