For a Pollard's Chicken, this one is very Good

This one in VA Beach is better than all the ones in Norfolk, the chicken was not as dry and it was very juicy, the only good constant on all of them is the Corn pudding, it is actually slap your papa good.

Sure, it has been a few years since my first visit to a Pollard's, but with signage for the best chicken in the area... Expectations were high. The quality, service and atmosphere was not. Grease laded chicken, instant potatoes with dry clumps, greasy tables and dirt through the dining area... A big bust. Avoid, even for the flashback memory.

Pollard's chicken is back on top. The fried chicken was cooked to perfection. This is a local family business that has been around for decades. They support many charitable causes. A great option for a family dinner.

I came here with a couple of friends. The clams were very good, but was later eclipsed by how good the corn pudding. Come and get it.

We ate dinner at the London Bridge location. Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, baked beans and puffs. Hot and fresh, reminded me of home. Not fancy, counter service place with plenty of seating.

I used to work in and am now retired to Virginia Beach, and Pollards Chicken has been a staple of mine for many years. I especially like the tenders - the absolute best (hot, tender and juicy). I recently introduced my wife to Pollards, as she is a chicken gourmand, and she also spoke highly of her Pollards experience -... More

My wife and and I order from here often...she loves the fish dinner and I prefer the chicken livers. Hard to choose WHAT is their "best" offering, though. Excellent barbecue and fried chicken that is award winning. The sides are excellent and I love their "puffs". Great food at good prices and the people are very friendly. Highly recommend.

Grew up and now live near Hampton Roads, but never knew of this local chain until they started advertising on TV about a year ago. Finally managed to stop there last night while on a shopping trip. I see why everyone raves about this place! If you are a tourist, be warned that this is really one of those great... More
