Menu specialties include Southern-style chicken and signature side items such as fried okra, mashed potatoes with gravy, cole slaw, Honey Butter Biscuits and Jalapeno Cheese Bombers.
I often used to go here for lunch when I was going to school I went with Dad when he was home from working out of town and my Mom was at work my Mom and I came here lots I always enjoyed the chicken with French fries and corn on the cob and also a chicken burger. .
As a teen, my family and I used to enjoy this location. It was good quality (for fast food) and good value.
I went for take out the other day. We were trying to figure out the menu. I saw what looked like a combo with a menu photo showing chicken, fries and two sides for around $21 plus tax. I asked about it and was told that this was for chicken only, and that sides were purchases separately. I have no idea why the menu photo showed the sides so prominently. I thought it was deceiving.
The order taker directed us to the $26.39 option that included a large fries and large gravy. We also ordered a medium cole slaw ($3.25) and wild rice ($2.64) and five jalapeño cheese bombers ($3.47). The whole order came to just $40 including tax.
Church's Chicken used to be known for being deliciously juicy. I found this offering a bit dry. The fries were mushy and the gravy was floury thick. the "medium" sides were tiny. if these were medium, I would hate to see a small!!
I took a look at the website when I logged onto dinehere.ca. I saw another menu entry for 10 pieces of chicken, medium fries and medium gravy for $20.99. Why didn't the counter person pointed that out when I was asking about the menu??? I didn't particularly appreciate paying an extra $6 for extra mushy fries and cheap tasting gravy.
If anyone reading this still enjoys the substandard offering at church's chicken, be aware that there is also a $5 coupon for orders over $25. This way you won't be price gouged the way I was....
Of all the Church's installations around town, this is my most frequented location. I usually do takeout here, and alternate between their sandwich or chicken combos. The main highlight here is their chicken, with the oh-so-familiar skin that falls right off. The batter is not too thick, with good flavour, your standard greasiness and very juicy. Most people tend to mistake all the stuff the squirts out as oil, but it is mostly the juices from the meat. Though not concrete, I remember reading a few blurbs before that their chicken is ice cold before entering the oil, giving it their distinctive thin and crispy outer skin and juiciness. Their regular chicken breast sandwich is also a hit but the slice of american cheese on top is an odd pairing. I don't know if this location has it but certain locations have the spicy option which is good in it's own right. The fries are much crispier than before, and I like the crinkle cut style myself, and don't forget the jalapeno bombers either. Everything else on the menu though is merely passable but best to avoid them.
Expect to wait a bit for your order, especially when it's busy. Even at the drive-thru window, I've been told to pull over and wait for my order. It has happened to me a handful of times over the years but it's anyone's guess.
The time's I have eaten in the decor is nothing special, and moderately clean, though most of the staff tend to hover behind the doors.
Church's is one of those foods I crave on occasion, usually surfacing when I gander through the Supersaver coupon books when going through the junkmail. How dare they.
