“Special order roast duck is a must”

This is a place you stumble upon and then tell others. Started by North Fork noted chef John Ross and then sold many years ago, this take out shop has morphed under the current owner to a very popular little eat in as well as take out venue. Ross's fried chicken recipe is still going strong, and Steve, the owner, has added a number of Mexican items to the menu. Everything is very fresh and making the customer happy is genuine.

I really like their fried chicken and summer is not complete without having it numerous times. Paired with local corn later in the season, it is an ideal summer meal. Try the corn bread too.

But the best real find is the special order duck. Sourced from Crescent Farms for weekends, it is cooked perfectly and excellent. Duck aficionados know all about Crescent Farms and their Long Island ducklings. You must order it the day before and I always take it out. But for those driving through the area using the Cross Sound Ferry, eating in the shop is average for a small take out place; but certainly don't expect much more than very basics. Bringing your own bottle of wine has been allowed in the past, and I would check to make sure that is still OK. Local codes have a way of changing fast.

I have been visiting this fine establishment for quite some time and can no longer keep it a secret. Steve and his staff cook up delicious dishes in so many ways. From good ole rotisserue chicken with all the sides to mouth watering ethnic cuisine like burrittos, quesadillas, tacos and tortas. The staff is friendly, food is fast, hot and delightful, all at a great price. To go or stay, its always good!

This was a great take-out place! We loved everything - the food, the price, the portions. Simple, quick, very tasty.

The pulled pork is excellent, and others thought the same aboutthe chicken (large portions) as are most of the sides (also large portions)...

Would have been a 5 star for me except:
I did not like the coleslaw...
and the rotisserie baked potato I had was very under done, almost crunchy...

Rotisserie started up doing roast chicken with all the trimmings and did it really well: mashed potato, corn bread, stuffing, etc. I still love all their originals. They now do Mexican food and it is great too.
