Does Zankou have coupons?

Jodie Jul 23, 2009 03:21 PM

Money is tight and I have lots of people coming over. Does anyone know if Zankou ever have coupons, and if so, where? Thanks!

      I stand corrected. There is a Zankou $10 off a $30 or more purchase card in the Hungry? card deck. It only lists the Sepulveda location, so it's not clear whether it's only valid at that one.

        Disclaimer: I am not really a fan of Zankou's chicken, think it's just 'ok.' But, for the OP looking to cut costs, for $4.99 you can get a whole roasted chicken with garlic sauce that I suspect might come from Zankou at Golden Farms on San Fernando near Western in Glendale. You can pick up a package of fresh pita, they even sell the turnip pickles there, and if you're feeding a crowd you'll save a bundle. Not being a huge fan of Zankou, I cannot say how the chicken itself compares (it's been ages since I've had Zankou, and I've only tried Golden Farms' once) but it's definitely a cut above standard grocery store chicken. And so cheap!

          I'm not a huge Zankou fan, but when catering for similar and tasty food, I like Cafe Dijon. They have mulitiple locations, I use the West Los Angeles one on Sawtelle. Their meals are complete with veggies (unlike Zankou) and the chicken with garlic paste is delicious. It even comes with baklava for dessert!

        Just so you know, the bst value at Zankou is the whole rotisserie chicken, at about $10 including tax. It comes with pitas, the garlic paste, and I think some of the pickled veggies if you eat in. I order one half for there and the other bagged to go, so it is easily two big meals.

          I don't think they do but it wouldn't hurt to call them and tell them that you're catering a large groups and if they offer discounts on larger orders.

            Agree wholeheartedly. If you don't ask, the answer will always be 'no'.

              or to rephase that, "if you dont ask, the answer will never be yes".

                    No coupons? That's chicken.

          2. Chowpatty Jul 23, 2009 04:35 PM

            I don't think they have much need to stir up extra business.

              If Zankou had coupons, they would be titled "Zankou very much."

              I have been waiting YEARS for that opportunity.
