New BBQ Chicken Place in Westwood Village?

Driving by, I've noticed new signage for a BBQ chicken place on the south side of Le Conte, near Sepi's. Anyone tried it? Is it grilled or rotisserie or? Do they have a website or online menu? Their correct name?

  1. Now, of course I can't recall, but I thought I read a review, possibly in LAT, and it's not really barbecue, the bbq stands for being best quality??? And I almost want to say it's the place that deep-fries everything in olive oil??

    C'mon hounders, help us out, do I have the facts straight?

      Hello, and yes, there was a recent thread on these boards for this new place. Their chicken is fried in olive oil. Apparently, other locations around town. Mixed reviews, but those here leaning toward the positive, iirc. Concerned patrons questioned the location's viability on that stretch of Le Conte...

        Thought so, thanks noshie. (Sorry but it's my kitten's nickname, & I couldn't resist!!)

      2. The thread someone posted is comprehensive. But I must say, reading about it made me crave it so I just ran out and bought some. I brought it back to the office and everyone is going nuts over it. Even though it had to endure a commute (10 minutes), the chicken is moist, juicy, and the skin is still crisp and delicious. I'm a new fan!!!!

          Wow, that's definitely good to know!! And you're right, Thi N. posted a completely comprehensive report that I was trying to, and unsuccessfully refer to!!
