Slam Your Taste Buds With Rotisserie Chicken and Greek Food in St. George
I decided to check out a new place to eat in St. George, Express Chicken on Sunset. It features rotisserie chicken, ribs and Greek food and has been open for about a month.
My wife ordered a quarter chicken, and I got the gyro plate. Both came with salad and a choice of steamed potatoes, rice, green salad, baked beans or fries. As you can see, the portions were ample and not too expensive. It came to about $22 for both of us and when we scanned our card, it didn’t ask for an additional tip. Very refreshing.
I love middle eastern food, and this is a great representation. The rice and potatoes have an orange spice that enhances the taste. The chicken was moist with some of the same spices. I loved the gyro that came with Pita bread and the creamy tzatziki sauce. It was done just right.
I talked to the owner who goes by Sean but his real name is Sharan and he is from Iran. He came to the United States in 1979 and has been in the restaurant business for 30 years. He sold his place in Salt Lake and moved to St. George seven years ago. “After a couple of years doing nothing, I thought, maybe it’s time to get back in the saddle again,” he said.
The building is brand new with a rotisserie grill in the front window. The windows and doors were clean, and the tables wiped down with the floors swept. You can see into the kitchen and the employees are friendly and the food was served quickly.
I think this is a yummy addition to the Southern Utah restaurant scene. They have Kabobs and one of my favorites, stuffed grape leaves. I plan on making regular visits to my new friend Sean at Express Chicken.
