DIno's, Zankou and.....?

These are my two favorite chicken places, and since I'm in a low-carb mode currently (sadly, I don't eat the fries at Dino's these days), would like to know other great chicken places west of DIno's. I like to think the baba ghanouj at Zankou isn't that bad for carbs. Any other low carb favorites would be appreciated as well.

    You'll probably like Versaille's Garlic Chicken.

      I suggest you make an exception for the Dino's fries. It's okay. I promise!

        Pollo a la Brasa, but you'll have to skip their fries as well.

          The French do a pretty good job on that food combo, try Le Petit Jardin's and it's not that expensive like $15 (?):

            I'm partial to these guys. Very low on ambiance, but the garlic paste is addictive. IMHO, i like it better than Zankou. I know this might be an unpopular view, but I like the seasonings on the chicken better and the garlic sauce is on par. Falafel is pretty good to, as is the shawerma.

              I've found Al Wazir to be more consistent than Zankou in serving essentially the same product.
