Good Chicken spots in Queens

Looking for a good chicken spot in Queens. Hosting a party and the person I usually get my oven roasted chicken from is not in town. Any suggestions?

      I think this place on Ditmars in Astoria is great. Their sides aren't really worthwhile, but the chicken (and the hot sauce) is delicious.

      Chicken Festival
      2919 Ditmars Blvd., Astoria
      (718) 728-9696

        PIO PIO produces a superior chicken. They marinate their birds for 24hrs before cooking. PIO PIO has 2 locales. 84-15 Northern Blvd. in J Heights and 6230 Woodhaven Blvd. in Rego Park.

          Nelson's Grill on Northern Boulevard in Little Neck, just a few steps from the Nassau border. Excellent chicken and sides and very nice service.

            I second Nelson's in Little Neck. But also, Peking BBQ in Woodside, on Roosevelt just before 58th. Their roasted chicken is moist and tasty and never fails. Their ribs are good as is their House Special Fried Rice. But their chicken rocks.
