A popular Woodside eatery that serves all-natural and antibiotic-free chicken is opening a location in Long Island City in September.

Mister Chicken To Go, located at 53-26 Roosevelt Ave., is opening its second store at 44-64 21st St. in Long Island City, according to owner Mauro Haguilar.

The restaurant, known best for its rotisserie chicken and mashed potatoes, does a high volume of delivery orders, with many coming from Long Island City.

“We get a lot of business from Long Island City,” Haguilar said, who opened his store in Woodside seven years ago. “I get so many deliveries.”

The new venue takes over space that was occupied by a pizzeria, the now shuttered Amerigo.

Haguilar said the Long Island City restaurant has room for between 20 and 25 seats, and that he will be offering the same menu items—plus pizza.
