Crisp & Juicy coming to Tenleytown

Passed by this morning and saw the sign up and guys working. Looks like it's in the site of the former CD/Game Exchange at 4533 Wisconsin.

  1. I've been to the joint in Falls Church. Wasn't that impressed.

      You hit the nail on the head. Will Tenleytown get a Crisp & Juicy like the one in Falls Church, which is not so good, or the one on Lee Hwy, which is debateably the best rotiserrie chicken in NoVA. Between the very well prepared chicken, which can be juicy and perfectly spicy, to the delicious fried yucca and the tasty beans and rice, I think C&J beats Pollo Rico hands down. The other joints come close at times but those two are my definite favorites.

        My experience at the C&J in Tenleytown wasn't good (see my review below), but as I've seen recent posters enjoy it, I'm thinking about giving it a second chance (definitely not the fries that were inedible, but the chicken and yucca for sure).

        1. re: Ziv

          I have been to Tenleytown twice and found the chicken overcooked, dry and salty. Every time I've been to Lee Hwy it has been delicious.

            The manager (or maybe he was the owner?) was a prick when I went in. Very aloof, cocky and uninterested.

      2. Great! I love their chicken and fried yuca.

        1. This is the best news I've heard all day! I love Peruvian chicken!

          1. OMG. My husband will be there every night. Any word on when it will be opening?

              I prefer Don Pollo in Bethesda - but I'm sure we'll stop by once it opens since it's close to our neighborhood.

            2. Worth checking out, when their game is on, they're good.
