The Chicken House is located at 80-45 Kew Gardens Road near Union Turpike and the E/F subway line. This is not haute cuisine but it’s tasty and affordable and a much healthier alternative to the neighboring burger, pizza and chinese joints in the area.
They charcoal broil their marinated chickens on an open grill and offer meal combos that include their tasty veggie rice pilaf, crunchy greek style salad, warm pita bread and their signature hot sauce which resembles and tastes more like a zippy balsamic vinaigrette. You can get a quarter, half or whole chicken as a combo or seperately. They also offer baked sweet potatoes, grilled corn on the cob, spinach pies & whole grilled plantains at about $2 a pop. Combos start at $6 and the portions are excellent.
This place is always busy so you know you are getting everything freshly cooked. There are about seven seats inside the cramped, not so attractive space but this is definitely more of a take out place anyway. The staff is nice and the service is quick. Great for a quick meal on the go when you don’t feel like cooking after a long, exhausting commute home.
