Costa Mesa, CA 92627
OC Weekly's Description
Chixy Natural is a Costa Mesa restaurant that specializes in rotisserie chicken. The skin is only slightly crispy, the better to make eaters focus on the flesh, juicy and soft, edible with a spoon. The simplest combo gets you a drumstick and breast, along with tortillas (though store-bought, they’re of high caliber—no GRUMA shit here) and your choice of sides. While they’re all fine, the best are the couscous (chockablock with raisins that cut through the salad’s tartness) and baked beans out of a Southern roadhouse. Together, in this well-kept dive in a tony Costa Mesa strip mall just a long putt away from Newport Beach, you get a lunch better-suited for a picnic at Mile Square Park.
Tips from foursquare
Cute little place! Great food. I had the Quarter Chicken Plate with couscous, steamed veggies and a tortilla. They also have sauces for your meat. Try the sesame and the green hot sauce.
This place has Paleo bowls that are legit. Add avocado for extra goodness.
House Salad is wonderful and chicken is the best. If you like spicy, green salsa is amazing!
Their cornbread is like crack! Sooo good!
Chicken was delicious, very moist, tender & flavorful. Had the chicken sandwich - mint & basil was a nice touch, but slathered the bun with mustard! Good sides. Generous portions, friendly service.
