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?

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

        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.

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

              Good call -- rotisserie chicken at Costco is excellent.

              Believe it or not, Ralph's has an excellent rotisserie chicken, far better than the one at Whole Foods, which I agree is tasteless. I believe they brine the chickens at Ralph's. Don't add salt until you taste it. It's quite juicy and flavorful.
