The white tablecloths, colorfully chic interior and attentive waitstaff may make you hesitate to eat with your hands. It would be a real shame to miss a single scrap of the excellent rotisserie chicken, so if you’re too shy to gnaw a drumstick in public, get your overflowing, affordable platter to go. You must order chicken (the restaurant’s name is Spanish for the “cheep cheep” sound of baby chicks); the only question is which preparation you want. The most popular plate, the Matador Combo, is a whole roasted chicken plus rice, beans, avocado salad and fried plantains, with a creamy jalapeño dipping sauce on the side—more than enough for a family of four.
