Pollards chicken is one of the best if not the best fried chicken places around. I had not been here in years and decided to get fried chicken one night for a family get together. It is made to order chicken; it isn't sitting out under heat lamps getting dried up. The sides are great too. I really like the... More

We called ahead for a 16-piece fried chicken with 2 sides of mashed potatoes, gravy and 2 sides of mac & cheese. We still had to wait about 15 minutes as they don't make the fried chicken until they have an order. We also ordered a side of fried okra after we arrived. We had to drive about 10-15 minutes...

Chicken is lightly fried, moist. The biscuits... buttery and good. If I ate hear all the time, need a bigger set of jeans. Highly recommended.

I always order the dinner including four chicken strips and two sides. It's always fresh and good. The baked sweet potato is creamy and done right. It's steamed. The green beans are salty but good. Eat in or take out. Catering available.

Commercial on TV advertised best chicken. I had a take out order. The chicken was good, not much better then KFC but the pieces were small. The chicken and dumplings were very good, but again small portion. My order was supposed to have 2 "puffs" and I only got one and it was hard like an over microwaved roll.

Cold, Bland and Greasy food. Dirty tables. Sweet Tea best item on menu. NO appealing aroma. Huge mistake. Wawa much better.

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.

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.

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.
