I stumbled onto a very good broiled chicken place on the west side of Providence last night. Didn't have the sizzling smokey snap of real wood-fired places I've been to south of the border, but several thousand miles closer, so ok.
[Because this city doesn't believe in street signs along major thoroughfares, I don't know where I was. I believe it was Manton Ave. south of the Atwells split - there were several Latin food spots along this stretch, and this had a large banner/awning advertising it.]
It's a small take-out spot - extremely brightly-lit, but there is a large table if you can't take it home. They only serve half and whole chickens ($5 for half), and don't have menus. You just point. Good plantains ("maduros" - the fried, sweet kind) and some good-looking stews that I didn't sample.
Feel free to respond w/ the address if anyone knows where I actually was (Google didn't help, sorry!).
