They started as a tent at Findlay Market and just opened their spot that is also a block from Washington Park. In addition to the rotisserie chicken – they also have vegetarian options.
It’s a bright open concept but the tables are pretty tight – so when it’s busy – it’s packed. There is quite a bit of street parking and since it’s not in the middle of all the other restaurants – it’s a little easier to find a spot.
I had the George Washington ($8) (don’t mind the grey bar – no idea what happened there?) – it’s basically a Greek Pita. It comes with Rotisserie chicken, arugula, feta cheese, red onion, cucumber, tomato & tzatziki sauce.
The pita part of the sandwich was good – it was a little crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The sandwich as a whole was pretty good – the chicken is tasty but even with the sauce – all in all – it was a little dry.
This reminded me of my times at It’s Just Crepes (we miss you) – they can tend to be dry – so I always got one that has some saucy to it (The Red Goat – in case they ever come back). I need to find the pita with some saucy.
Dawn got the Nelson Mandela ($8 – chicken, pepperjack, black beans, corn chips, cilantro, tomato & chipotle ranch). I’ll tell you – I was DROOLING over this. It looked delicious and was very saucy! Dawn liked it as well. On a return visit – I’ll definitely get this one.
They have 8 options for sandwiches so I’m sure there’s one you’ll like.
We went for a side of tater tots (how can you not?!) that comes with a side of chipotle ranch ($3). These are good – as tater tots always are – but I’d love to see some type of seasoning on them to make them a little more special.
Why Should You Go? It’s definitely worth a try – my sandwich was pretty good – but it has promise. You can also get a half-bird of their rotisserie or fun things like Tater Tot Poutine! It’s pretty busy right now because it’s new – so be prepared for a wait if you’re there at prime time.
