Goood Frikin' Chicken rotisserie is pretty goood

svL | Apr 3, 2004 12:18 PM

Yesterday we tried the new rotisserie chicken place on the corner of 29th and Mission. It has an in-your-face name which might bother some people, but if their chicken stays as good as we got last night then people will remember it for quality and not just for shock value (although the name does have a mnemonic stickiness to it).

We didn't try everything they have, just the rotisserie chicken and a couple of sides. The chicken, a bit on the smallish size, was excellent (or should I say "goood?"). It was spiced up to the gills (overnight and in a secret marinade) and was flavorful and juicy. Maybe too spicy for some people, but I'm tired of bland, all-the-same chickens from around town.

The sides we got was a decent salad, rice pilaf (kind of dry) and a very tasty hummus. The owners are Jordanian and they have some Middle Eastern stuff on the menu (gyro, hummus, baklava, pilaf). The order came with a couple of great-tasting tortilla/naan-like pieces of bread which went very nicely with the hummus.

In addition to the rotisserie chicken, they have open-flame chicken which looked good and I intend to try it next time.

Prices are $8.95 for the chicken alone or $11.95 for the "meal" (chicken plus a salad and a side dish). Orders come with that good bread and a garlic dip. This is a bit higher than Safeway or Costco but much more interesting.
