This restaurant has the best chicken and their sauces are so good! I've tried a few different entrees there and have always enjoyed them. Fajita Salad, and a half Chicken with sides are my favorites!

Dined at a table here a few months back and really liked it. Then began comparing all the rotisserie chicken places along Route 1 and stopped back by here for take-out - a popular choice, it seems! This is one of the top chicken places,...More
