Sutter's Winner, Winner? Fresa's Chicken Dinner

New, 7 comments

It's officialish: Fresa's Chicken Al Carbon, the upscale charcoal chicken joint from Larry McGuire that has miffed so many charcoal chicken purists, serves the tastiest charcoal chicken in town according to freelance food critic Mike "Fed Man Walking" Sutter, who ate at six different Mexican-style chicken joints to find the best fowl in town. His conclusion? Fresa's is really good, so too bad for the dumb, stupid idiots who like loser El Pollo Rico:

The clear winner among the six chickens in this Rotisserie League series was the one that inspired it in the first place: The $24 bird from the fancy new concession stand called Fresa’s. That puts me in the itchy position of justifying a chicken dinner that’s almost twice the going rate for Mexican-style charcoal chicken. I’ll try. The loser — El Pollo Rico — puts me in the equally awkward position of slamming a little place with cheap chicken and a fiercely loyal following, a following that can’t punctuate or spell worth a damn, except for the four-letter words.
So take that, idiot El Pollo Rico fans ("Enjoy your stomach cramps," writes Sutter), you ignorant, cussing shitty chicken-loving dumb stupid people who are dumb and stupid ignoramuses! (Ignorami? Discuss.)
