“Most value for high quality chicken”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

My wife and I eat here regularly (both in the restaurant and take-out). They serve freshly cooked chicken directly from the rotissary. There side dishes are excellent, including soups,salads,potatoes ,veggies and fruit. Two people can easily eat here for under $25.It is great quality food at an exceedingly reasonable price.

“"Fast-ish" Food at its Best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2013

California Chicken Cafe is a super place for a quick, healthy bite to eat! The salads are amazing, especially the Chinese Chicken Salad and California Chicken Salad! The roasted chicken is exceptional and don't forget to try a side of the squash -- it's healthy, but you'd never think so! The self-serve, bottom-less soft drinks are a welcome plus.

“Travelers should stay away”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2013

Yes, tourists and travelers should stay away in droves. The food is just OK, but the ambiance is terrible. It is like a big noisy warehouse. I really feel sorry for the workers there, poor things. I could barely make the clerk hear my order. Where is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration when you need them? Skip this place.

“Good place For Fast Chicken”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

This is a large restaurant where you order and pay at the counter and wait to pick up your food when you are called. Very good tasting chicken and the usual sides. Self serve on the beverages. The restaurant itself has no atmosphere and can get a little noisy. Metered parking is along the street.
