This was my kids' favorite chicken. The crust is amazing. The owner closed up to retire. The good news is he sold his recipes and his specialized broasting equipment to a local and you can still buy the chicken at Pizza Chalet on the corner of 5th and Yucaipa Blvd.

Excellent roasted chicken with tasty sides. Have been going there for years with family & will be sad to see it go.

Stopped in after finding this on trip advisor and broaster.com. We knew we were good when they told us it would be a few minutes to cook. Chicken came smoking hot and juicy...just excellent. Biscuits were heavy like grandma's. This place is spotless and clean. Excellent visit, highly recommend you get this amazing chicken while you can...We heard the owner... More

The chicken is outstanding but it is getting way too pricy. I ordered 12 with and extra side of spuds and some Jade salad and the total came to just over $50 The BBQ beans could use a little thinning out and the biscuits are too dense for my taste. I will not stop going but I will probably go... More

Absolutely 100% hands down the bestest darn fried chicken my family has ever had the pleasure to eat. Although it's not close to where we live, we have eaten here many, many times and the excellent quality of the food and customer service is always top notch. The size of the chicken pieces are much larger and also much fresher... More

I've been going to Johnnie's for about 25 years. I'm not the only one; I was in another town in SoCal recently, and a cashier in a store said, "the only thing I miss about out there (Inland Empire) is a place called Johnnie's Broasted Chicken...." I get the impression many of us locals are long-time customers. Anyway, the chicken... More

Have eaten at Johnnie Chicken many times. Little on the expensive side but well worth the extra money :)

The chicken is really delicious! The sides (coleslaw, potato wedges, rolls, mashed potatoes & gravy) are good, but nothing special. The chicken is juicy & tender & crispy on the outside. Their prices are a little high.

We regularly order take out. Two piece breasts, broasted potatoes and cole slaw. You hear "The Best Chicken Ever" a lot, but Johnnies IS the best. Dont know where he gets his chicken, but the breast are huge and the broasting process makes them delicious. Brownies not bad too.

We have been going to Johnny's every Thursday for the last several years to pick up our 12 pack of outstanding fried chicken. Johnnies Chicken,which actually is owned by Mark, is so juicy and delicious tasting that once you have his chicken there is no other fried chicken that begins to compare. Last year we went back to Virginia and... More
