There are a lot of restaurants that specialize in chicken. There's the ever-popular Max's, there's Kenny Rogers Roasters named after the famous country singer, there's the likes of Mang Inasal, Chicken Inasal and Bacolod Chicken that specialize in inasal. Then there's Andoks, Baliwag and Sr. Pedros that specialize in lechon manok.
As for Marikina, there's a homegrown restaurant that is proud to mention its roots that it included it in it's restaurant's name: Johnny's Chicken - The Fried of Marikina.
Their specialty of course, is chicken. You can't compare it with other brands and flavors of chicken cause it has it's own unique taste. Aside from serving whole chickens, you can sample a piece with their various meals which include rice and drinks.
I personally like the taste of their chicken. It's not as big as other restaurant servings but the taste is justifiable enough to order 2nds. I'd recommend getting a 2 piece chicken or 1/2 chicken for your stomach's enjoyment.
Johnny's has 3 branches up to date: right within Marikina Public Market along W. Paz St., (beside Krung Thai), one inside the Marikina Riverbanks Mall and one in Pasig City at the corner of Amang Rodriguez Ave. and Benito Soliven Ave.
