Golden Bird Chicken at Porky's

Wes | Aug 29, 2006 05:36 AM

Just when I had my choice narrowed down to beef ribs and the pulled pork sandwich, along comes Golden Bird Chicken.

It was on the serving station when I arrived so I don't know how long from the fryer. It was simply THE best fried chicken I can remember since my grandmother's on the farm in Nebraska.

It was golden, perfectly crispy outside and amazingly moist on the inside.

Keeping in mind the piece size of most chicken outlets I ordered the 4 piece meal. $5.95 with a biscuit. I added a small side of fries for $1.99 and a refillable soda. The pieces were huge and three would have been plenty but I bravely ate all 4. You get a choice of 4 with 1 breast. I got a leg, two thighs, and a breast. Even the breast was juicy and hot.

The 'small' fries was also huge and pretty good even though I like them a little crisper. I asked for a small cup of BBQ sauce for dipping and no problem and no charge.

So, as I was leaving I was thinking to myself, GREAT now three things to choose from. Just then another customer asked if I had tried the Brisket and raved about it. Darn, WILL IT NEVER END?

I am anxious to hear the reports of others to see if this was a fluke or the real thing. I have found that they're quite consistent and hope it holds to the fried chicken.
