Sounds absolutely wonderful....I googled, and found lots of rapturous reviews of the restaurant chain, and their Marvelous Garlic Sauce, but no recipes.  I suspect you'd have to recreate it, based on field research <g>.

  Zankou Chicken specializes in a particular type of Armenian garlic 
  broiled chicken.  This is the largest chain, although I am more partial 
  to a smaller group called Sevan Chicken, also based in Glendale, which 
  is a nexus of Armenian population.  More garlic.  Yay.  It's not the 
  chicken that is so fattening, so much of the fat drips off in the 
  rotisserie proces, it's the customary Mediterranean side dishes. 

  Curiously, I'm having trouble finding a recipe for this kind of 
  chicken.  How hard can it be?  Maybe it's one of those things that 
  nobody's mother makes at home.  <moue of frustration>
