This was not my first time trying out the supposedly famous Arnold's Fried Chicken. It tasted alright the first time though not particularly impressive. That was at least a few years back. I happened to be in the vicinity this time so decided to give it another go. I went for their Fried Chicken Meal ($11.90) , it consists of a whole spring chicken with fries and coleslaw as side dishes but it did not include a drink. If to order the soft drink served in a plastic cup separately then you are expected to pay $2.10 for quite a small cup and it did not quite justify the value.
A pager was given and the estimated waiting time as advised was about 15 minutes. The pager buzzed a couple of minutes later, i collected my order from the counter.
The size of the spring chicken was bigger than expected. It was fried perfectly to give a desirable layer of crispy skin with juiciness still retained. The meat tasted rather tender and unexpectedly soft but a little too bland.
I enjoyed the coleslaw and fries though, it would be nice if the serving portion was a bit more generous for a whole spring chicken.
So, do i like it enough to visit soon? I do not quite think so as this is not going to be amongst my top choices when i am crazing for fried chicken.
