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

The title says it all .. Among all the Armenian restaurants in Glendale, Zankou chicken is the best in everything .. You won't miss it

Zankou in the eighties was a true delight , the more fame it gained the lesser quality the food became. the falafel is never done right , the oil is used over and over again . the tiny bleached chicken they use costs over 10$ and hardly fills 2 people . Sorry i won't recommend this place.

I really enjoyed my lunch at Zankou. I got the the tri-tip shawerma with tahini and hummus, warm pita, and onions and tomatoes. Oh, and these really awesome little peppers! I think now I should have tried the chicken since that's really what they are known for. However, I got plenty of food, though maybe slightly over priced--I was visiting... More
