Was headed for another venue when I decided to take a look at the menu here. People already dining seemed to be enjoying their food and there was not much of a line so I figured why not try it. Turns out it was a good decision and had a very good meal. Lots of people were ordering out and... More

Whenever we are in the area, our son always picks up all sorts of goodies from this place, and brings them over to our daughter's for a nice and delicious lunch. It was our daughter's birthday October 7th, and as she is housebound now (maternity leave), he picked up different varieties (and a whole roasted chicken!), and brought them over... More

We drove by and saw the line going out the door decided to give it try and glad we did. We order the falafel plate and tri tip shawarma plate. Love the different flavors. Food was very fresh and hot. Falafel so we're very good. Dips were yummy. Will eat here again when in Los Angeles.

Zankou Chicken is a middle eastern chicken place. They serve a whole roasted chicken and offered to cut it up for you. Sides to go with the chicken include hummus,baba ganoush, etc. They also serve falafels, with the house made ground garlic. This is a great place for takeout or for lunch or dinner.

Zankou Chicken's food is pretty consistent and delicious from location to location, no matter which location you visit. This particular location is the one I have most visited since I was introduced to Zankou about 8 years ago. Staff is always friendly. Their turnaround is pretty quick, I would say within 5 minutes after placing the order. It's pretty clean.... More

WOW...This restaurant has special food dishes of several kinds, along with other chicken dishes. The dishes we ordered were super good with large portions. It was obvious at dinner time that my wife and I were in a great restaurant....The line was out the door at 6 PM to pick up phone orders and order meals. In a few minutes,... More

I had Zankou for lunch today. The falafels were the perfect size, crunchy on the outside and moist in the center. The hummus, tabouli make an excellent side for a vegetarian plate. Good food and prices.

I had to wait over 20 minutes to get a chicken and beef kabob combo. The beef was a little over cooked. Overall it was satisfactory.

I stop to eat here every time I am in Glendale. The food is delicious and plentiful and the prices are terrific. The only challenge is that parking can be tight.

Since my son moved to Glendale a few years ago, I have had the privilege of eating Zankou's food several times. For the most part it is a pleasant repast with a cuisine that is not always available. Though reminiscent of Greek, it is totally Armenian. From the platters, to the side dishes, everything has their twist to it. My... More
