Stopped by California Chicken for lunch recently after reading TripAdvisor reviews. Thanks for the tip everyone, it was really good and good value for money in this expensive tourist town. I had the rotisserie chicken and broccoli soup, very good. My husband had the chicken wrap, it was huge, and he was happy as well. The service was good -... More

When it's time to let others do the cooking, CCC comes to the rescue with a crispy and well done roasted chicken. Side orders are delicious too, especially the mashed potatoes and the wheat pita bread. With so many choices around the block, California Chicken Cafe stands out.

This place has amazing chicken! I've never been a huge fan for chicken breast but they make it well! They know what they are doing! My typical lunch is, 3 piece chicken with Mashed Potatoes and Macaroni salad!

Great selection on the menu, fresh food, everything is made to order. Busy location a little on the loud side if eating there. I would suggest the Chinese Chicken Wrap. There to go orders can be called in before you arrive for pickup. You cant go wrong to feed a family of 4 for under $40.00

You know you have visited El Pollo Loco one too many times when they know your car at the drive thru. Don't get me wrong , they do what they do well but when you just need some more variety and love fresh chicken and fresh side orders this is your place. Great whole wheat wraps, chicken plates with lots... More

Love a healthy fast food option! We were visiting LA and based on reviews came straight here from the airport. Crowded with locals, so I knew it would be great. My family of 4 (with teenagers) all enjoyed our lunch here before we headed a few blocks down to the beach!

The chicken is always tender. I like the Chinese chicken salad with pasta. It's good with the mandarin orange segments.
