“Best Chicken in Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Pollard's has been around for decades and has some of the best Chicken in town! Their food is always fresh, hot & delicious. They offer a good selection of sides and some other items such as fish and BBQ Pork & Chicken. They are famous for their Puffs (fried biscuits). One of our favorites is their Fried Chicken Liver Dinners! They have numerous locations around Hampton Roads and offer great Catering also.

“Awesome Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

WOW!!! That is what I have to say about the fantastic food, that was made and enjoyed, for my parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary party held on Saturday, August 4th! Everyone - and I do mean EVERYONE, loved it all! The ham, turkey and chicken were moist, tender and delicious! The potatoes, green beans, salads and rolls were the perfect compliment! Even the next day, when we enjoyed the leftovers...people were still commenting on the moistness of the ham, turkey and chicken! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!! Pollard's made our event AWESOME! You definitely need to check them out if you're considering an event that you need catered!

“Hot & Greasy, the way it should be!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2011

I grew up going to this place after church on Sundays when it's mobbed with people. I love their chicken because they still fry it to order rather than keep it under warming lamps like KFC usually does. This does tend to create a bit of a wait but it is worth it. I am a big fan of the puffs- they're kind of like deep-fried biscuits and they come with honey. I wish I could say good things about their sides but I just can't. Avoid their green beans & mac n' cheese. The green beans are always very, very soggy as if they've been sitting in liquid for days. The mac n' cheese is usually on the cool side and lacks any sort of creaminess. Perhaps this may sound strange, but Pollard's has perfected the syrup to soda water ratio of their fountain drinks- their Coke is exactly what I think Coke should taste like. The girls that run the register are always on top of their game!
