Yargh, a loser.

Corner of Pearl and John. Takeout only, very short menu. Chicken, chili, chowder, and 4 sides.

Rotisserie chicken had less flavor than the paprika chickens at my Key Food. I savored the salt and pepper from their paper packets.

Of the flavor of the sides of rice and macaroni and cheese, the best that could be said is they were yellow. The roasted potatoes and boiled broccoli had spent a day too long under the heatlamps.

Strangely, the chowder wasn't bad. But of course there were no crackers or oysterettes.

And the crowning indignity: 25 cents extra for a thimble of hot sauce.

Two tongues down, and farewell to $8.95. Stay far away from this place.
