Okay, so we all have those cravings… the guilty pleasure ones you have to indulge in every so often… this was one of them. We got 4 pieces of chicken and three large sides for just under $20.00. Other than the heaping box of fries, the sides aren’t big, nor were they anything to boast about, except the French fries got an A+ for being thick, fluffy, and not greasy. The chicken was perfect, crispy and well seasoned on the outside (and not too salty!), juicy and tender underneath. I really liked the crispy skin, it’s my favourite part about fried chicken (shame!) but seriously don’t judge me, I know you love it too.
We ordered two spicy and two regular pieces, however we only got the regular (to Phil’s disappointment. Don’t worry, he smothered them in hot sauce anyways)
We were disappointed with the macaroni because on the menu it was described as macaroni and cheese, you know, warm steamy cheesy goodness. It was a cold mayo/relish macaroni salad. Booo-ring. The coleslaw was okay, I preferred it to the macaroni and I’d probably get it again. The ladies at the counter were both very nice, but they couldn’t coordinate our order and the whole process was far more complicated than it needed to be. Obviously there was a communication issue because we didn’t get exactly what we ordered, but they were patient and answered all our questions. Like, did you know Church’s has a “Wild West Rice”? Whats in that, you ask. Well, it’s sliced up chicken and vegetables, all mixed together with ketchup. Ya, no thanks, but good to know.
Go for the fried chicken and french fries, avoid the macaroni salad and wild west rice. The Churches Chicken on Main and 18th is open 24 hr for late night munchies.
