Sonoma Rotisserie and More mini review (Tempe, AZ)

Anyone try this place yet? I stopped by last evening, and it was quite good. Nothing on the menu was over $10 (most in the range of $6-$9), other than NY Steak for $12. It's the quick-casual concept, where you order and they bring it to you. Great staff; owner and chef both stopped by and said hi. Not corporate at all, although they are going to open one in downtown Phoenix next March/April.

I had the roasted half chicken with rosemary gravy (and side of warm lemon vinaigrette). Pretty darn good deal for $7.99. Came with a side, of which I chose leeky (from leeks) mashed potatoes with a red wine-like gravy. Nice selection of sides: grilled veggies, soup, grilled artichoke/aioli, salad, pasta pesto, etc. Also a little grilled piece of cheesy bread was alongside the plate.

Buddy of mine had the bacon linguini tomato pasta ($7.99), which was filled with veggies. Very good as well. He also had a Sonoma Bar dessert ($4.99), sort of a layered chocolate/coconut crust with custard and ganache, which kind of grew on you; however, tasted a bit chainy (should have ordered the pot de creme, I guess). Probably would not order that again.

I'd definitely go back. Nice looking patio area that screams "kick back with a glass of wine." Hey, and they've had a coupon for "buy one, get one free" in one of the papers the last couple weeks. They have a website as well.

Any other opinions???
