The chicken here is addictive. I've seen it have a crack-like effect on some of my friends :) Not only does it smell heavenly, it's looks good and most importantly, it tastes fabulous! There are times when I crave this place and go out of my way to get it. If you're looking for ambiance and fancy frills you've got the wrong place. Their only focus is the chicken. The sides are fries and coleslaw. I've never been a fan of the slaw. But I love the steak fries. The chicken comes with two little sauces. A green one, that is basically pureed/crushed green jalapenos. The other is a tangy mayo sauce. What I usually do is mix the two...mmmm....heaven. The meal comes on an unpretentious styrofoam plate. You have to have an Inka Cola to wash it all down. Warning, your hands will get greasy and messy, so ask for plenty of napkins. Also, if you go during lunch or dinner time, be prepared to wait in line. I've seen it go down the block despite the fact that there are two other places that offer a similar style chicken. This one is still the best. Enjoy!
