The best fried chicken you'll ever eat

You will never taste fried chicken more delicious. It's juicy, flavorful, and tender on the inside and crispy in the outside. You need to try it. I wish I could go here more often just for the chicken. The prices are great considering the quality. It was about $8 for two pieces of chicken, two... read more

This place used to be fantastic. I'd go about twice a month. It's gone so far downhill that it's actually quite sad. The last straw was when I ordered some platters of tenders (how can you screw that up)for a party, I sent my husband and he called me to inform me that they never made them and he would... More

This was my first trip to this restaurant and also my last. I purchased a whole chicken which was undercooked, chicken fingers that were dry and tasteless, lumpy mashed potatoes, butternut squash that was too stringy to give to the children and corn bread that broke into crumbs when handled. Although I had heard good things about this restaurant, the... More

Best chicken in town, end of story. And best of all its REAL CHICKEN. KFC, and the rest serve something that relates to chicken but its not. Good sides, better for take out.

Visited the connection years ago, and didn't think much. After a glowing review from the phantom gourmet, decided to try again. For all the hoopla about the cooking process, let me simplify. Heartburn! My husband and I stopped for lunch. We both ordered chicken "plates" that came with two sides. We both agreed the leg pieces were edible, but the... More

Went to Chicken Connection's Haverhill, MA location after a Phanthom Gourmet rave review, which implied he treck to eat aweome homemade fried chicken and mashed potatoes would e worth it. NOT!! The location was quiet maybe 2 other customers so I cannot say they were too busy to sweep a filthy floor. They happily took our money for fountain beverages... More

The stuffing will always be good here, but everything else? Don't waste your time. We got a chicken pie and it was completely bland. No seasoning whatsoever. The crust was awful. Very thick, soft, lacked any flavor and not flaky at all. The frozen pies at market basket have better crust. I would not ever recommend them. The fried chicken... More
