“Come for the chicken. Stay for ribs and potato salad.”
Reviewed October 19, 2008

I live in Pacific Grove, and I would be a less happy resident if not for The Little Chicken House because my town just *has* to have a dependable, inexpensive place to get chicken & ribs right off the barbecue and serve them up with freshly made side salads like coleslaw, potato salad and more.

The place is totally down home, casual and always friendly -- run by two brothers from El Salvador, Raphael and Oscar. The chicken is always hot and ready to eat: chances are your order will be taken right off the brick oven rotisserie.

In addition to the chicken and ribs, they also serve turkey, sandwiches, and probably more that I'm forgetting. They serve beer, and there's a drive up window. Open every day except, Monday or Tuesday.

If you want to make their day, bring them some kind of chicken-hen-rooster sculpture/chotchkie/ornament/cooking tool etc and they'll proudly put it in their window!

“Great price, great food”
Reviewed September 11, 2008

We were really impressed with this, it was quick, easy and really tasty. We got the 3 meat combo at $15 which was more than enough for the two of us. The meat was really tender and while I don't normally like barbeque sauce flavour this was very nice.

If you just want something easy, quick and inexpensive this is a great pick.

“Guilty pleasure”
Reviewed August 30, 2008

When you need some confort food ribs or a great BBQ chicken on a Friday night, the Little Chicken House is the place to go. A rack of ribs and a chicken will feed 4 adults for about $10 bucks a head. Add some garlic bread and slaw and you have a meal. Dry rub BBQ, makes the flavor perfect, but their home made BBQ sause is a must. Follow it up with desert from Bechleur's (just a block east) and you have the perfect take out meal. Drive throug service. Its as close to the south as can be found in Monterey.
