Hecky's Chicken, CrossRhodes Burgers and Candlelite Pizza

beergeek | Feb 18, 2005 11:02 AM

Got some Hecky's fried chicken the other night. Usually go to Chicken Shack. WOW! Hecky's fried chicken was excellent! The pieces were huge. They had a real nice not-too think breading. And best of all, they had kind of a spicy dry rub on them. A little more expensive than the Chicken Shack.

CrossRhodes burgers last night. Carry out. Not good. Very greasy burger and cheap white bun (good for pulled pork but not burgers in my opinion). Everything kind of squished together. Nothing on the burger, and you couldnt pry apart the bun from patty to put anything on it without tearing the whole thing up. Fries were pretty good. Ate it anyway...dipped in dijon. Probably wont get carry-out burgers from there again. Ugh.

I am hooked on Candlelite Pizza! I am so sick of the flat pizza options up my way and this is fast becoming my go-to place. Super thin crust, cut into squares. Very nice sausage. The spinach pizza was very tasty. The garlic fries are to die for. I really like this place If they could cut back on the smoking, that would be nice. They have 2-for1 pizza on Tuesdays.
