Fried Chicken & More Cart Serves A Poultry Sandwich As Big As Your Head

Is it good or bad when you swear out loud due to the size of the lunch served to you? This was the question I asked myself after unwrapping my sandwich from the Fried Chicken & More cart.

I’d first tried the cart’s namesake fried chicken after they started serving food at Park Place & W. Broadway in January. The chicken was reasonably good, and most of all, dirt cheap. Since that first taste, the cart has expanded its offerings by leaps and bounds with several kinds of fried chicken products (nuggets, popcorn, wings) on the menu alongside cheeseburgers, a fish sandwich, falafel, pizza rolls, biscuits and fries. Unless you only order a single piece of chicken, you are not likely to go away hungry here.

I believe I ordered a fried chicken sandwich ($4), which I took to mean a fried chicken filet on a bun. What I got instead was a large piece of boneless chicken (although not all white meat) that was basically heavily seasoned street meat that hadn’t been chopped up. The amount of meat couldn’t compete with the bun which was humongous, matched only by the piece of romaine lettuce within. A couple of slices of tomato, some mayo and hot sauce completed my gigantic sandwich. And that bun? It was way too chewy and bready and I ended up eating only half of it.

No lunch with a gigantic sandwich would be complete without some fries! An order will cost you $2.50 and you get a decent serving for that amount. My only gripe was that between the styrofoam container and plastic bag they were in, the things were limp as a dish rag by the time I got to eat them.

For $6.50, my lunch was more than enough to fill me up, despite not eating all of the giant roll my sandwich came on. I’d say stick with the fried products here unless you’re trying to feel a little healthy and want a chicken sandwich. The flavor of the chicken was fine, but I guess I’d rather have my street meat in a pita or over rice.
