Eat Like a King at California Chicken King in Duarte

By Bill Coburn


California Chicken King in Duarte  (1112 Huntington Drive, (626) 358-KING (5464) uses only fresh, all natural chicken and beef with no added chemicals or hormones. Its rotisserie chicken is marinated with garlic and herbs, and is then delicately roasted on a skewer to seal in the juices and capture the natural flavors.  Its turkey is 100% breast meat steamed, then glazed on an open wood flame.   Its Tri-Tip Beef is very lean and juicy. It is pink on the inside and brown on the outside.  Its Baby Back Ribs are pressure steamed, then wood flame roasted for a truly unique flavor.


Okay, thatís what their marketing material says.  I havenít tried their turkey, or their Tri-tip, so Iíll take them at their word on those items.  But Iíve tried their rotisserie chicken and their ribs, and Iíd have to agree with their marketing stuff.  The chicken was delicious, the ribs meaty and tender.  Now I donít know if the lack of chemicals or hormones is something I would necessarily notice a difference about, but I could taste the garlic and herbs, and the chicken was juicy and hot.  I really enjoyed the chicken, seasoned and cooked quite well (thatís good well, not well done well).  The ribs definitely had a unique flavor, and left me wanting more (I had a couple ribs off Katieís half rack).  Katie was asked if she wanted them to dunk the ribs in the sauce, or if she wanted the sauce on the side, and Iím glad she chose the latter, as I was able to put on the amount of sauce I wanted, instead of somebody else deciding how much sauce I wanted.  The sauce was quite good, by the way, and Iím pretty picky about BBQ sauce.


I ordered kernel corn and mashed potatoes and gravy for my sides, Katie had yams and a green salad.  We both had ďKing CombosĒ which come with two sides.  Keelan had the roasted chicken sandwich combo, which comes with one side and a drink.  For his side, he had the potato wedges.  His chicken sandwich, served as a pita wrap, was a heck of a good sized sandwich, and with potato wedges and a drink thrown in for just $5.99, it was a pretty good deal.  Sandwiches can be ordered a la carte for about $2.00 less, on average.  My Ĺ chicken combo (all white) was just $7.74, and Katieís Ĺ rack combo was only $10.99.  There are plenty of places that charge more than that for just the half rack without the side orders, so we all felt like we got plenty of food for the money, and we all enjoyed the taste of our food.  The one thing that kept this review from a rave, was that some of the side orders werenít as hot as Iíd have liked them to be.  Into each life, some rain must fall, right?  Probably just needed a little more stirring to get the hot stuff mixed up from the bottom.


California Chicken King also offers take home family meal feasts, such as a whole chicken with 2 sides and 4 pita breads for just $11.99.  They have 2 whole chickens with 3 sides and 6 pitas for $20.99, and 3 whole chickens with 4 sides and 12 pitas for only $28.99.  Or order some ribs, a whole slab with 3 sides is just $20.99.  They also order a la carte items, a choice of kids meals, and rice bowls (a roasted chicken or bbq chicken rice bowl is only $3.99)!  You can view the entire California Chicken King menu at


The service was good, the food was good, and it was served up surprisingly fast.   Theyíll deliver within a 3-mile radius for orders of $15 or more, and they also do catering and private parties.  Debit cards are accepted, with a small transaction charge.  All in all, Iíll be back, and if you happen to be in Duarte, Iíd say youíll be glad you stopped in, too.


Mea Culpa Dept. #2 Ė For the second time in recent weeks, I published erroneous info in the column.  I told you last week about Nikki Cís Restaurant and Bar opening at 470 S. Rosemead Blvd., in Pasadena, but I provided you with the wrong phone number.  I transposed the middle two numbers of the last four.  It should have been listed as (626) 702-7437, not 7347.  My apologies.  I hate when I do that.  Their menu is now on the website.


The Canadian Cafť I told you had opened in Monrovia will be celebrating Canadaís 167th birthday on July 1st by giving each customer a free piece of birthday cake.  No word yet as to whether or not Bob and Doug McKenzie will be able to make it down, but letís hope so, ay?


Sierra Madre Pizza Company has just opened up in the former Kís Deli location at 181 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., in Sierra Madre.  Theyíve kept the same phone number Kís Deli had, (626) 355-6058, and have published nine coupons on the website.  Sierra Madre Pizza Company is owned by Ernie de Silva, who brings lots of experience and a record of success with him to Sierra Madre, with Monrovia Pizza Co. having already been around for 15 years, Duarte Pizza Co. for 4 years, Baldwin Park Pizza Co. for 6 years, and East L.A. Pizza Co. for 1 year.  Good luck Ernie, and welcome to Sierra Madre.
