Oinkster chicken: move over, EPL!

Lord help me, I have a new favorite rotisserie chicken. Even the sadly overcooked Belgian fries could not dampen my enthusiasm for this succulent and luscious little bird. Granted, the chicken (unlike the fries) had just come off the roaster, and I would insist on getting one from the most recent batch, but the just-aggressive-enough seasoning and the meltingly tender meat would probably taste really good right out of the refrigerator the next day. I got a dark-meat 1/4 chicken with the fries, aioli and red slaw, that last being a darned good dish itself. Me and honey/mustard don't usually get along, but the sweetness here was subtle and the mustard quite fresh and nose-tingling. All very good. All of that and no drink (doing lots of water these days) for $5.13, with tax. Oh, and the whole chickens are cheaper than El Pollo Loco's, too. I know where I'm getting my next takeout bird.
