Recently, someone posted a message here recommending Lola's (full name "Lola's Peruvian Restaurant Y Polleria")on Victory at the northeast corner of Kester in Van Nuys. We just tried a whole takeout chicken and it is excellent. It is grilled over wood and has an enticing spicy flavor. It comes with a container of sauce to kick it up more than a notch. It is different than Zankou's, but compares very favorably. Not cheap--$11.80 for a whole takeout chicken.
A word of caution--if you are looking for the place you will see a sign that says "El Pollo Abraso", and nowhere is there a sign that says Lola's, but that's what it is. They have another location at 230 N. Brand in Glendale.
