STUDIO CITY ( — Chef Larry Greenwood of Gaucho Chicken Café visited the KCAL9 studios Wednesday to talk about his new LA restaurant where there is no tax and no tipping!

Everything at Gaucho Chicken Cafe is extremely affordable between $6-11 and features simple menu items- wraps, salads and chicken 1/4, ½ or whole; white or dark meat with delicious sides.

There is a Malbec wine, a great beer on tap & sangria as far as alcohol goes, and then all the sodas are made with natural cane sugar (so no Coke, Sprite, Pepsi, etc.). It’s a very casual dining experience with a fast food mentality, but prepared with care and attention to healthy, clean ingredients.
