New take-out chicken option in New Rochelle

laylag | Jan 23, 2008 08:12 AM

I know we get bored with chinese and pizza/italian take-out and while we can order take-out from most restaurants in the area it tends to get quite pricey so I was intrigued when I passed by and saw a new place - Chickens Gone Wild on Boston Post Road in the strip mall next to the one with Fratelli and Red Lotus.

We stopped in to get a menu and it smelled so good my daughter pleaded to get take-out for that night's dinner. We did and thought it very good. The chicken was really, really good - fresh, moist, well-sized, nicely char-grilled, served with pita bread and hot sauces. The ribs, unfortunately not 'real bbq' ie. smoked were still good. Nicely meaty and moist. At least as good if not better than Ribs on the Run. The sides we chose were not terribly exciting - mushy, bland mac and cheese and cucumber salad. The cuke salad had nice large chunks of fresh veggies - cucumbers, peppers and celery but the dressing lacked seasoning. Next time we'll try others.

The menu goes beyond chicken and ribs and includes burgers, fried fish, even pork chops but I think the chicken is really the star. There are also what they bill as healthy choices - turkey burgers, veggie burgers and caesar salads. The young staff were quite friendly and helpful. They don't deliver to my neighborhood but do go to Larchmont, New Rochelle and Pelham. The prices are quite reasonable.
