Cross the road for the chicken at the Commissary

Image
Crispy, spicy rotisserie chicken awaits at the Commissary Latin Kitchen.

It seems like you guys aren’t eating at the Commissary, and you should. This friendly food court-ish thing is just across Third Street from the Downtown Grand’s casino, a combo spot for coffee, booze and lots of Latin-tinged grub. The Cubano-style torta is nearly perfect—maybe ask for extra pickles and mustard—and the tacos, burritos, salads and bowls pretty much make this place Downtown’s very own Chipotle.

But the rotisserie chicken is the true prize, not to be missed. Lusciously tender, slightly smoky meat is hiding under a deep, dark spice crust, a blast of chile, cumin, lime and other fantastic flavors. You can order the chicken in tacos or burritos, but why not splurge on a whole bird ($22) and take some home? It’s not likely you’ll tire of this taste.

The Commissary Downtown Grand, 719-5311. Daily, 6 a.m.-midnight.
