La Rosa Chicken & Grill is a place that doesn't pretend to be anything but what it is. A great place to grab a great chicken sandwich or a home cooked quality chicken dinner with some great sides. It isn't gourmet, and it isn't very flashy. But the chicken is very good and all of the sides are as well. Their Gorgonzola chicken sandwich, and Chicken Pesto Sandwich are two of my favorites. I eat there often when I'm looking for something quick and satisfying. Their coleslaw is some of the best in town, and trust me this town has good coleslaw. The staff is always friendly and do their best to make sure you are happy. They may be a bit slow where they are busy but what place isn't. If you are looking for a place to get some solid chicken this is the place for you.

A great place for chicken in a variety of forms. Getting a whole (or half) roast chicken is a good call (add a few sides too), but usually I go for the sandwiches. The chicken pitas especially are a good choice: loaded with lots of chicken and fixings. I also love the chicken caesar salad. Their caesar dressing is good (not too creamy) and they give a generous amount of chicken.

For sides, I like the mac'n cheese, steamed veggies, and stuffing. And don't forget the corn bread, which does a good job of soaking up any excess caesar dressing!

This place is the absolute best. Everything from rotisserie chicken to their wraps are amazing. The owner is almost always there, and staff hasn't changed in years. My favorite lunch spot in Madison/Chatham area.

The ribs are amazing, worth the 30 minute drive alone. The red skin potatoes are great, the mac and cheese and cucumber salad are good too. Mini cornbread muffins are the perfect accompaniment to the ribs.

Always fast, courteous service. Their chicken is awesome and their sides are always fresh. I'm lucky because my wife doesn't like cornbread, so that means more for me!

I read the review and had to give them a taste. Awesome place! I had their 1/4 chicken and veggies. The veggies were fresh and the chicken very tasty.
I wish we had one of these in my town!
The owner was very nice and friendly.

Visited La Rosa yesterday for the first time.
We had the roasted chicken and baby back rib combination.
The roasted chicken was fantastic - The skin was crispy and flavorful and the meat was tender and juicy - The baby back ribs were also great and packed full of flavor.
The corn bread seemed to be home made and was also great tasting.
The sides we had were the mac n cheese and the garlic parsley mashed potatoes.
The man n cheese was creamy and full of flavor.
The garlic parsley mashed potatoes were also great - definely made with real potatoes (not the powdered kind like some other places.)
Also tried a cup of the Chicken Chili soup - another great item.

The food at the counter was presented professionally and looked very fresh.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Sal, the owner, came by and asked if everything was okay - Very friendly guy and made us feel like family.

This is a go to restaurant - 5 stars for sure

“Healthy and Hearty”
The rotisseried chicken is their specialty, but their sides are secretly scrumptious; I've gone there just for a double order of their string beans. Service is FAST!

“Great chicken and soup”
The rotisserie chicken, tomato salad and soup are excellent, good if you are in a hurry. Great if you have a cold and need comfort food.

“Great friendly chicken place”
Great local chicken place. The sides are always fresh and tasty. Everyone is friendly. Way better than fast food and just about as quick.

“Love this place!”
A new favorite for my family. My husband loves the chicken and I love the chicken salad. Tons of sides to choose from, both hot and cold. You really cannot go wrong. It's great food and the people that work there are so friendly. It keeps us coming back.

“Comfort food”
I love all the comfort foods they offer. Mashed potatoes, whipped sweet potatoes, creamed spinach, garlic string beans, and dark meat chicken. Can't beat it!

"The Lunch Spot"
I have lunch at la rosa chicken at least 2 times per week. So far everything I had has been really good. Grilled chicken, grilled steak, gyro, and rotisserie chicken.

Hi, I ordered delivery for my first time eating LaRosa's. I loved the food! Got Ckn/Ribs and a couple side orders. Everything was tasty & fresh. Gentlemen that took my order and delivered were very pleasant. I'm hooked! Best of Luck with ur new establishment, but I have a feeling your going too do very well! Thanks! I'll spread the word!

Ahhh La Rosa La Rosa! I love, love, love this restaurant! I believe I stated that before but I can't help but express my love for this place! Yesterday I had the grilled chicken platter with a side of broccoli, LOVE IT! The food here really makes you happy! Yelpers, you have to try the chicken platter, rotisserie chicken, salads, (all of them) or the grape leaves! Those are my favorites! Lastly, they really take the time out to provide the best customer service as possible! They remember your name, your favorites, and they are always well put together! You know when you go to a fast food restaurant and you look at the employees like "OMG is he just getting to work or did he just have a fight with a grease truck!" You will not see that at this place! Enjoy yelpers!

I ordered some food from La Rosa (Manalapan) recently when having some friends over to watch a sporting event. None of us wanted the typical pizza and wings fare, so I searched for a place that would cater to everyone's appetite. When I saw La Rosa's varied menu, accompanied with the good reviews, it was an easy choice.

Most of us ordered the chicken tender platters, a few of us ordered some wraps and another person got a salad. The order was delivered within a very acceptable time considering how our order was pretty large, and the delivery person was friendly.

Everyone enjoyed their food and was impressed with just how much food you can get for such a good price. I had a turkey wrap which was excellent. The pesto mayo on the wrap was so good and the turkey was very tender and moist, not dry at all. Also I have to say the mac and cheese was delicious.

I was very pleased with the food, price and service, and will definitely order from La Rosa again.
