So Appetizing! – A friend introduced me to California Chicken Cafe and its amazingly fresh, delicious, and warm salads. So appetizing!
Always good – I really like how consistent this place is.
Always reliable and delicious. – You can go healthy with the rotisserie or semi healthy with the wraps. Either way it's great.
Healthy and Totally Tasty! – So I went to CCC the other day because a lot of my friends told me that I need to eat there. I'm new to LA so when I walked up and saw about 100 people in line, I was going to die.
BUT, after eating their Caesar Salad, I have to say, you MUST eat there if you're on the West Side. The pita chips are amazing and the salad wasn't overly dressed, which I hate. 5 stars for this tasty treat!
Citysearch Editorial Review – During the day, this outpost of the local California Chicken Cafe chain draws the business lunch crowd, but come evening everyone from neighborhood families to police officers line up for the affordable fowl fare. Patrons place orders at the register and wait for the signature rotisserie chicken and Chinese chicken salad as well as sides like spicy red potatoes. The menu also offers fresh wrap sandwiches, including a popular vegetarian pita stuffed with rice, vegetables and ranch dressing ... who knew such great vegetarian grub could be had at a chicken cafe?
Great place for a quick bite of great food! – One of the best chicken dinners you'll ever have. Healthy, casual and great food will keep you coming back for more.
And try the roasted potatoes and butternut square. They're great!
Yum, Yum, Yum... and healthy! – I would not be complete without California Chicken Cafe! It is an excellent option for lunch or dinner that is easy and healthy. I highly recommend the Asian Chicken Salad, as I almost get it everyime I go. It is a large portion as well, so I generally share it with my boyfriend. I take out all the time, enjoy!!!
Excellent for fast food – Big rush descends on the place for lunch and there's limited seating, but it turns over quickly.
Meals here are a lot like eating at Whole Foods a couple blocks away. It is possible to sit close to the rotisserie, which takes a bit off the fast food experience. All in all, chicken is good, and sides/salad bar is good (not great, but reliably good). Convenient for carry out, if you walk over or get lucky in their tiny guarded back pkg lot.
Healthy, Good Food. Bad Service LOUD atmosphere – I have been to this chain at other locations.
Food - I like the food but I can agree with some of the other comments that most items are very similar.
Service - Just ok, the staff is not outwardly rude, but they are not necessarily courteous or outgoing either.
Setting - REALLY LOUD. I went during lunch and the noise inside was almost unbearable. I couldn't even talk across the table. I think it is made worse by the design of the place(flat walls, tiled floors, hard ceiling).
Crowd - A lot of stroller moms mixing with some local people who work in the area.
Chicken lovers love this place – The food is good, but you will be eating chicken - as you'd expect. The menu is not that varied. When I come here I either get the chinese chicken salad or the chicken wrap (their specialty). The food gets made fast, so it's basically fast food, but it's fresh and healthy. The problem for me is, I don't like to eat that much chicken, so I haven't been here in a while. But, when you are in the area and need to grab a quick lunch alone or with a friend, you have to consider California Chicken - you can seat yourself, serve your own drinks from the fountain, and get in and out for under or around ten bucks.
