I dream of the Fried Chicken at the Agawam Diner in Rowley

Chris VR | Oct 25, 2006 07:45 PM

I finally had a chance to stop at the Agawam Diner and now I know why everyone raves about this place.

I had the fried chicken plate- nothing fancy, right? But oh, that chicken. A light, airy, crisp crust (needed a bit of salt) seals in the moistest chicken. Oh yummmmmm drooling on keyboard...

A hearty portion of 2 legs and a thigh (you can request white or dark meat) came along with a good homemade coleslaw, a big scoop of what tasted like homemade jelled cranberry sauce, and a mound of fries. All this for $6.95. Wow. And did I mention yum?

Even for a late lunch, it was hopping at 1:30 on a weekday. I imagine this place is insane on weekend mornings. I didn't have any room for the much vaunted pie- next time!
