Restaurant Review #257: California Chicken Cafe, Westwood

There are a number of reasons why you might want to avoid California Chicken Café: It’s difficult to find parking. It’s quite crowded, even at off-peak hours. The tables are ridiculously close together. It’s not much of a value for what you’re getting—the portions are fairly generous, but the food is just average. Still, it must be crowded for a reason and I can’t imagine that it’s due to the location. Near as I can tell, the best selling point of California Chicken Café is that, unless you’re quite hungry, there’s a chance that you can make two meals out of your lunch—a great bonus for the area’s many college students. The service is rather quick considering how busy the restaurant is. Still, that busy atmosphere makes for a rather hectic, unsettling, uncomfortable meal. It’s not an ideal place to go have an intimate conversation with a friend. You might be better off getting your food to-go—especially if you’re illegally parked.
