Title: Best rotisserie chicken?
Post by: jhjefe on April 03, 2019, 02:43:14 PM
For years we’ve done a bit of trial and error, settling on Don Alex for the flavor and texture .  On the salty side in a good way, a bit of crispy skin (could use more but I’ll take what I can get) ,  and not mealy or mushy... usually.  Pretty consistent.  Perhaps there’s other good spots .  Any favorites out there?  Can’t seem to find any recent consensus on this board.

I've been pretty happy with the chicken at El Pollo Inka Peru.

always had luck at Pollos a la Brasa Mario, but i would love to find a crispier version (or a side of cracklins!)

Though I realize it's a bit of a walk, my personal favorite has always been Peking Chicken in Woodside, across from St. Sebastian's RC Church.

Casa pollo is great.  A close second to don Alex for me.
For what it’s worth here’s my ranking so far but will try inka and Peking suggested on this thread:

Foodtown actually will do in a pinch. more for in-recipe use than for eating. it's cooked well, not mushy, but not a lot of flavor.

I've been happy with Original American Chicken. It's well-seasoned, often (though not always) juicy, and not too salty.

I like the foodtown one too. And for $7.00 it represents one of the best food deals there is
