+1 Costco fan

Have tried Metro, Walmart, Sobeys in the past. Haven't been back to them since Costco.

The walmart in Mississauga used to have "tandori" rotisserie chicken. It wasn't bad.

Costco rotisserie is still my fav

What's the verdict on the roast chicken at Loblaws, No Frills, Longo's, Sobey's and Wal-Mart? How would you guys rank them?

I live close to a Loblaws a No Frills and a Longo's, but am not sure which place to hit up. :D I've never had the chicken from Longo's or No Frills, but am generally happy with what I get from Loblaws.

I think people here said Costco's rotisserie chicken was the best out of all...

The one time I was in Costco they were out of chicken. Now I'll always wonder. :(

but it will stink up your whole kitchen, fridge and microwave like smoke (if there's any left over to refrigerate and microwave). Haven't tried Costco, though.

... and worst is Wal-Mart's. It's tasteless.

I'm ok with Loblaws/RCSS, and Metro's.

We have a Superstore, Metro and Costco in our area and I have tried them all and they are all primarily the same. A spinning chicken in front of a flame really comes out the same regardless of the locations. Some may be slightly different than others, even in the same store, depending how much spice the person preparing them has put on each chicken.
In my opinion, the whole meal deal of the chicken, fries, gravy and coleslaw is a great deal. When I don't want to cook, that is my pick. :)

I thought Costco chicken tasted bland.

Loblaws has decent tasting chicken.
Dominion used to have a great herb chicken but they made it skinless now, and it doesn't taste as good anymore.

Dupont has 2 Portuguese BBQ chicken places that are really good. Even the white meat has the flavors in it.

The problem with most chicken places is that the white meat just tastes rough and dry

Has anyone ever noticed that the chicken at Costco is always moist? I've had chicken from Loblaws many times and the breast meat is almost always dry, even more so if I have it for leftovers. But not so with the chicken from Costco even the next day the breast meat is moist like it just came out of the cooker.

I'm starting to think that it's some sort of hormone/chemical they pump into the chickens (Food Inc movie...). And their chickens are ginormous compared to Loblaws.

Maybe it's because the chicken is always fresh, because so many are being bought. Chicken comes in, chicken goes out.

Never a miscommunication.
