Grocery Store Roasted Chicken - Who has the best?

QFC, Costco, Metropolitan Market, Whole Foods.
Who do you think has the best roasted chicken?
Prices range from $5.99 to $9.99.
Is there really any difference?
Your opinion?

Metropolitan Market

  1. Costco - even if they didn't have the lowest price I would choose their bird. I find the MM one very dry - husband complains when I bring one home.

    1. Costco best bird for the price all others are small and usually dry

      1. Not a grocery store, and out of the price range at $16 for a whole bird, but the take-out section of Seatown Snack Bar does the best whole roast chicken to go I've ever had. It's easier to justify the price if you pick up between 5 and 7pm when a couple of sides are included for the same price.

        Their other roast meats by the pound are also excellent.

          1. Costco..... but that Seatown Snack Bar idea is pretty cool.
