Charcoal Chicken

By kenk 17 July 2007 29

For years we frequently patronised the Charcoal Chicken place in Manuka but it closed down about six years ago when its lease expired. Then we used Kingsleys Chicken in Queanbeyan but (dammit) this closed down too – last time I passed the premises were still vacant.

Does anyone know if the Manuka operation resurfaced anywhere? I think Kingsleys franchises survive though I have never located one.

Is there a charcoal chicken place surviving in Canberra/Queanbeyan?

What’s Your opinion?

Oh yeah, I remember Golden Continental Chicken too! I think it was closer to the mid ninties that it closed though.

I miss the greatest BBQ Chook of them all – the Golden Continental Chicken at Mawson. It was owned by the Katheklakis family, and did the best roast chicken, chips, roast spuds and everything else. It closed in about 1992…

Kingsley’s do own both the QBN and also Lanyon premises. And suffer an inordinate number of break-ins and premises damage as a result of leaving them empty. FIIK why they aren’t open though, you’d need to ask Kingsley Varr himself.
Kingsley is quite real, and runs offices out of Dundas Court in Phillip, and they can be contacted by phone.

I remember getting chicken from Regal Charcoal Chicken as a kid… always was good. Although that would mean driving into Charnwood, being attacked by psuedo gangs and being blinded by the shine off their fake gold ‘bling’.
