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

      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.

        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 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.

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

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

                  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.
