In case you didn’t know already, there’s a huge difference between the rotisserie chicken you can get at a grocery store and the roasted chicken you can get at a place like San Fernando. The beauty of this place comes from the lack of pretension in what they’re doing. They make damn good chicken and that’s all they care about. No other gimmicks necessary here.
When it comes to chicken, I always say you can never have too much, only too little. This is the type of chicken that falls off the bone and has you licking your fingers because no taste should go to waste. If you get a half you’ll wish you had a whole. If you have a whole, you’ll wish you had more fries. That’s simply how it works here. Although there are many options on the menu, I recommend first timers focus their stomachs on the bird, fries and some plantains. This isn’t a time to get crazy.
This no-frills experience allows you to focus strictly on the chicken. The way it should be.
