For over 50 years, Zankou Chicken has provided Southern California with fresh, high quality, Mediterranean food.

Our mouth-watering beef is 100% USDA Choice. Even our bread is baked hot and fresh every morning. We made this promise of quality back in 1962, and vow to keep it for each and every one of our amazing customers.
