I've been wanting to try Stockyards' fried chicken for the longest time and so last Saturday my boyfriend and I went there for lunch. We were worried that we wouldn't be able to find parking, but we were glad to know that there was street parking right in front of the restaurant. The place was quite small and all the tables were full except for the front of the restaurant which only had those bar tables and stools. There were many people coming in and out of the restaurant to order/pick-up food for takeout, which is great for those living nearby.

Stockyards Fried Chicken Dinner ($15). 4 Pieces of buttermilk marinated chicken served with fries, coleslaw and hot sauce. We both ordered the fried chicken dinner and they came out pretty fast. The pieces of chicken were huge and they had a nice golden brown crust. The skin and the batter were super crispy on the outside and the meat was very juicy and tender on the inside. The flavour kind of reminded me of KFC (which I like) but obviously better quality. We loved it! The only thing I didn't really like were the fries. They were really hard and tough to chew, maybe from too much frying? My boyfriend said it felt like being stabbed in the mouth lol. The coleslaw tasted great and I liked how the celery seed flavour was strong, balancing the greasiness from the chicken and fries.

Bottle of Coca-Cola ($2.75). We both ordered coke to wash down the heavy, but delicious meal!

Overall, we really enjoyed our meal and cannot wait to come back to try their other menu items such as the ribs. I recommend this place to those looking for a tasty fried chicken restaurant because for the price of $15 it's worth it considering how big the pieces of chicken are!
