Recently moved to Ft Lauderdale from New York area and have discovered some new and interesting places from Boca down to South Beach. More on that later but other then Whole Foods (which is pretty decent rotisserie chicken , but lacking on sides IMHO, where else do you guys recommend?

    I don't know if you are considering restaurants but I think the best takeout Rotisserie Chicken is probably from Houston's -- either in Pompano or Aventura (North Miami). Its always really good, one of my favorites.

        Sam's and Costco rotisserie chickens can't be beat they are huge and for under 5 bucks add a great salad and a veggie or starch and you will have leftovers for sandwiches, salads etc.

          No brainer if you are willing to head a little south- Goyo El Pollo located on Tyler St (1 block north of Hollywood Blvd) in downtown Hollywood. Peruvian place that serves great rotiserrie chicken. Get the ceviche too - outstanding.

            I agree. Try Goyo El Pollo. The chicken is quite good, as is the fried rice and the yuca huancaina (sp?).

              La Granja is totally the place to go. Get their excellent yucca and a bunch of sauces to go with - they have all kinds, from spicy peruvian pepper sauce to garlic sauce to a curry-like aioli

              Thanks very much all. Looks like La Granja and Goya Pollo are worth trying as well as Sams and Costco but the big box stores are not that close to Las Olas. , where i am located.

                Also try the Publix ones, they're pretty good, never had a dry one and the ones I've had were well seasoned...

                  I've definitely gotten some dry chickens from Publix, but overall I think they're decent.

                      Definitely think the Publix chickens are overcooked. Penn-Dutch has some good chickens.
