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

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

The Chicken Connection on Rt. 97 in Haverhill, Massachusetts has been around for many years. Well known for their catered meals for large group outings. . .(think classic Thanksgiving-type meal). These meals come with their Broasted Chicken. Our two staples that we order are the Bucket of Chicken and the Macaroni & Cheese. We split it amongst ourselves and always... More

This was my first time eating at the Chicken Connection. I had heard about it through friends and the Phantom Gourmet. I ordered the chicken finger meal with a choice of two sides. The two sides I got where the mashed potatoes and the mac and cheese (which my husband wanted). The mac and cheese was awful. My husband described... More

We do take out from here whenever we don't feel like cooking. The chicken is great but so are the sides. Caution Cheese Macaroni is addictive. The chicken fingers or individual pieces are excellent. Kicks KFC's Butt. Two locations with the same awesome food. The original location on Broadway in Haverhill is great. The new location in Plaistow is just... More

We pick up here often when visiting the in-laws in Haverhill. It's everything chicken and more. Not a fancy looking place but don't let that bother you. The only caveat is the parking lot is at a heavily traveled intersection and it can be a bit dicey to get back out of the lot. I am rather surprised to see... More
