    My go to choice for broasted or fried chicken in the SFV is My Brother's BBQ in Woodland Hills. The bbq itself wouldn't past muster for a true que afficionado (although its more than passable for me) but the chicken is excellent.

    My Brothers Bar-B-Q
    21150 Ventura Blvd, Woodland Hills, CA 91364

      From the Broaster's website:

      LULU'S RESTAURANT (17 miles)
      16900 ROSCOE BLVD
      VAN NUYS CA 91406
      Phone: 818-988-0707

      Surprisely very few places in the Valley.

        I remeber the original location on the corner of Ventura & Woodman. Only chicken place that delivered. I can't think of anyplace comparable.

          Broasted chicken is available at many different locations in southern California. Try the broasted chicken website to find your nearest location.

            I used to like Pittsburgh Broasted Chicken in Los Alamitos but it's been a couple of years since my last visit so can't vouch for recent quality. But that used to satisfy my cravings. It's more of a takeout place and you can get different seasonings.

              There was one at Burbank & Balboa, closed a couple years ago. Not exactly close by, but Slavko's in San Pedro is good stuff.....their "chicken nuggets" are addictive.

                I go to one of the locations on the website in Upland...the chicken at Old World Deli is amazing!

                I have heard that the Amber's have closed down.

                I recently tried Chicky Fried Chicken, which is actually a broasted chicken place in Long Beach. It was quite good. If you try it, I'd like to know what you think. Located at Long Beach Blvd and Del Amo.

                  I remember Ambers on Magnolia near Laurel Canyon. I'd love to know of something like it.
