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

I have been very unhappy with the prepared chickens I have purchased from Whole Foods. Any ideas where to get a tasty chicken... Has anyone tried the prepared chickens from gelsons or bristol farms?

  1. I like Gelson's roast chickens probably the best of the supermarket chickens. In the past, I've gotten good ones from Pavillions as well.

      I ditto both Gelson's and Pavilions. I like Gelson's cause you can buy just the breasts.

    2. Laught if you must, but Costco is my go to place for rotisserie chicken.

        Can't beat Costco's roasted chicken-----> 6 samoleans

      2. Rotisserie chicken with garlic potatoes from the Monday Farmers market at Plummer park
        Fountain/Vista is delicious.

          I will go there next Monday.... sounds like a great idea...... What time is the market open?

        2. I second Costco chickens. Not sure if this is too west for you, but Coppelia's in Culver City has pretty tasty rotisserie chickens.
