Takeout rotisserie chicken in Westchester?

I usually pick up rotisserie chicken from Misti Cafe in Port Chester or Poultry Time in New Rochelle.
Any other places I should try?

  1. Costco! You'd be surprised how good it is!

      I'll second that. They make some of the best rotisserie chicken, and it's only $5.

      I don't know if they are still in business but there is a Chinese/Peruvian restaurant on Tuckahoe Road in Yonkers near the thruway. They have a sign in the window advertising Peruvian roast chicken that they turn on when they have the chicken available. I tried it once a few years ago and it was great.

        Note: The place is now closed.

          I just noticed the comment about Poultry Time being Closed,FAR FROM THE THRUTH! We are Open from 9;00am to 7:00pm,sundays till 5:30pm.
          Seven days a week,only close for Easter sunday,Passover,Yom Kippur and Christmas.
          We're here since 1962 and not planning on living Westchester,many tried to use our name and reputation thru the years and failed.
          Please update your information and give us another chance to serve you,thank you.

            Poultry Time, don't know why your feathers got ruffled here. If you re-read JMFs post from February of 2007 you'l realive that JMF was not referencing your store. He was stating that the Chinese/Peruvian place he spoke of - on Tuckahoe Road - was closed.

              Hey,thanx for the reply,I see what you mean,now i can sleep better.
              Business is great,we're still here.Have a great weekend!

               
      2. From various recommendations on the boards have been interested in giving Poultry Time a try. Anybody know Poultry Time's hours? Every time we've been over that way they've been closed. Do they close early on weekend evenings? Weekdays?

        Went to Ruffled Feathers in Scarsdale - recommended on the boards - can't recall the name - and chicken was good, sides not so much, and pricey for what it was.

          CHURCH AVENUE POULTRY MARKET!!

          It's in Scarsdale near the train station! If you like Ruffled Feathers you have to try Church Avenue. It's new this year and very good - I've been eating there for lunch and bring dinner home for the family. Chicken, Turkey, Meat, Fish and plenty of sides and all of it is very good. One of the chef's told me he train at the Culinary Institute. Great sides too and my kids love it!

        2. Comfort in Hastings. Organic, beautifully seasoned, and delicious.

            I definitely agree. They really do a great job with it and the offering of sides is beyond what's available in most shops.

          2. Is Poultry Time kosher? If so it would be closed early on Friday and all day Saturday. I agree that Costco does chicken well and we've been happy enough with Boston Market when we're in a hurry.

              I'd thought of the kosher thing but didn't think they were since no one mentioned it in any of the postings on it. Some of the side dishes they reportedly offer were mentioned in posts and were distinctly Jewish style - kasha, egg barley, etc. so it's possible. It is in Wykagyl so...

              1. re: laylag

                Definitely NOT kosher...but very yummy! The skinless fried is awesome!

                1. re: MRS

                  MRS, do you happen to know their hours? They were closed by about 6:00 last Saturday night.

                  1. re: laylag

                    Not sure to be honest. I typically go in the later afternoon.

            2. Mint in Tarrytown. Check out the chicken, rosemary ham, excllent cheeses, etc. Then thank me.
