A new chicken restaurant is coming to Meridian soon. It’s a ‘concept out of California’

Just when you thought the Boise area had reached its saturation point for new chicken restaurants — nope. Not even close.

(And, no, Raising Cane’s still isn’t planning to open here this year.)

But on a more pressing note? Mysterious new brand Chicken Delite is on track to debut this spring in Meridian.

This won’t be chicken fingers. Or hot chicken. It sounds intriguing, actually.

Describing itself as a “Mediterranean rotisserie restaurant,” Chicken Delite will take over the former Qdoba spot at 3319 N. Eagle Road, suite 100 — kitty-korner from Dave’s Hot Chicken, just north of the intersection with Ustick Road.

“It’s a concept out of California,” said Tony Flores, sales and leasing associate with Northwest Commercial Advisors, which helped facilitate the lease. One of Chicken Delite’s partners is moving to Idaho to start the new brand, Flores said.

Chicken Delite’s menu will focus on rotisserie chicken, along with sides such as rice, pasta, salads and hummus, he said.

The restaurant has a target opening date of April 1, he said.

Chicken Delite has an Instagram page but no posts yet: @chickendelitemeridian. It’s slated to be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
