Best rotisserie chicken?
« 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.

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
