Eastside Property: The home of Boyle Heights’ sumo wrestling chickens sign is up for sale


IMG_0793-002BOYLE HEIGHTS —  There’s a lot of signs all over the walls and windows of Chaves Pollo Burger. But the most eye-catching – and bizarre – sign stands atop the restaurant: a large drawing of two rotisserie chickens locked in a sumo wrestling match. Why? Who knows. Anyway,  Chaves Pollo Burger is not for sale but the building, located at the corner of Cesar Chavez and St Louis Street, and an adjacent apartment house  is up for grabs, according to LoopNet.  “The restaurant is very established within the community and has been at this location for many years,” says the listing.

$940,000 buys you the storefront, seven apartments and a small parking lot.  It’s not clear, however, who would take ownership of the sign.
