Being members of "Zehnders Rewards", we've recently taken advantage of the free chicken, family-style dinner, offered during one's birthday month. Yes, we've had this meal numerous times, over several years in the past, but we never tire of the special chicken flavoring, as well as all the "extras" which are served during the dinner. (Buttered, seasoned noodles are always a... More

We have always loved a trip to Zehnder's for chicken dinner. Bringing our dogs along lately we have gotten carry-out dinners from the lower level cafeteria to enjoy at a nearby park, as we did last weekend. What a disappointment this time! White meat portions are now VERY small - cut pieces of breast meat instead of an actual breast... More

We went to Zehnder's yesterday. We got there around 4:00pm so we avoided waiting in line. It was very good. The coleslaw and bread they start you off with were fabulous. The strawberry jam was some of the best I've ever eaten. I had the chicken dinner. The chicken had a light crispy coating. One of the pieces was over... More

There were five of us and we all ordered the fried chicken which is served family style, comes with all the trimmings and all that you can eat (better stated MORE than you can eat!).

I love their hot chicken sandwich. So much food but yet so delicious. My whole family always orders the same thing. I love it. I do recommend going at lunch time so you can get the half of sandwich! This is our treat when we go!

We ordered the family style chicken dinner. It was delish! The huge marketplace downstairs offered some of the ingredients that were used in the meal and we bought the dried noodles and the strawberry jam. I can't wait to bring my whole family here in the summer!

While on vacation, we stopped in Zehender's, and was greeted immediately by the staff. We had a large group, (8), and were seated within just a few minutes. Our waitress, Donna, introduced herself, and immediately told us about the specials. We decided to go with the family style, and were happy with our choices! Our meal was served really quickly,...
