Best Rotisserie Chicken in Sunnyside

There are a lot of places in Sunnyside that sell rotisserie chicken. La Pollera Colorada, Pio Pio Riko, Brisas del Mar, Chips are just a few. What are people's opinions for the best rotisserie chicken in Sunnyside? I tend to like my chicken moist but also with flavorful seasoning. Of the ones I tried, Pio Pio Riko was dry while La Pollera Colorada was a little bit bland. I haven't tried any others, though.

  1. It's very important that one not order too many times in a row from the same chicken joint. Right now Pio Pio Riko is at the top of our list due not in small part to their unbelievalbly good green sauce. We will switch back to Pollera Colorada - Flying Chicken - soon (red sauce to die for). If you don't know why we have dubbed them Flying Chicken then get over to Greenpoint between 41st and 42nd and check it out.

    1. My vote would be for the Pollera Colorada, which seems to use a larger and better quality chicken than Pio Pio Riko. And please try to avoid the rotisserie chickens at the Foodtown, Associated, and Key Food supermarkets in Sunnyside, where are all terrible.
