Chunky Chicken!

My granddaughter (24) and I visited Chicken and Spice this April. We had the George and Eddy which is four chunks, potato wedges, mac and cheese bites, a biscuit and a drink. Now, we are not small ladies, and we could not finish it. The chunks are BIG. All white meat and juicy not dry. I thought... read more

This place is one if not the best place to get chicken. It's a dive but it's so worth it. It's right next to silver cross field and I just don't have words to describe it.

They don't always have the Gumbo, I believe Tuesdays is when it is out. The chicken tenders are all meaty white meat and the hot spicy ones are awesome. This family has owned this restaurant for eons and keep it clean and the food fresh. We always order their chicken for family parties. This is a take out/dine in place,... More

When you have a large party to put on you can't beat the Chicken Chunks.! We always order days before and it's ready when we arrive to take it home.

The chicken and chicken chunks are surprisingly good. Nice, crispy crust and not greasy. The chunks are huge. Jojos (potato wedges) are good, tender with nice coating. Cole Slaw was not good, and came in a plastic container and suspect it's not made on premises. I was overcome by the smell of fryer oil in the restaurant. Better ventilation is... More

I went to pick up some chicken chunks and jojo's after work for the family. Customer service is awful which is the usual, but I just go for the chunks anyway. Long story short I brought the food home the jojo's weren't cooked all the way and the chunks were ok, but greasy. Needless to say I was sick as... More
