Chicken Ranch Special #1

Welcome to the first installment of YesMoreChickenRanch. As Maciej mentioned earlier we tried Chicken Ranch this evening. What a treat. Cheap, greasy food and an unintentionally hilarious receipt (seriously, order just to laugh at it, it's incredible).

Here's the rundown of YesMoreChickenRanch. There are 20 unique specials at Chicken Ranch, running the gauntlet of greasy food from chicken to fried shrimp and white fish to cheeseburgers, typically accompanied with a soda and your choice of an assortment of rice, fries, mashed potatoes and biscuits for sides. I plan on eating all of them and giving a quick review.

Today, we start out with Special #1 - 2 Pcs. Chicken, F.F. or Mash Biscuit & Soda - $4.50.

Now, from that description from the menu I assumed that I would get a bisuit and soda and then choose between french fries and mashed potatoes. I chose french fries and a sprite but was saddened to see that a biscuit was not included. I don't know if that was an oversight or if it's just not included with the specials. I guess we'll see as we progress through the menu.

Onto to the meal itself. It came in a positively glorious American flag box. The chicken was a sizeable breast and a sizeable drumstick, it took up roughly a third of the box. The fries took up the other two-thirds. The fries were pretty thin and perfectly fried. Very tastey. One gripe. They don't give you nearly enough ketchup for fries. Three packets ain't gonna cut it.

The chicken was delicious (for $4.50). It was fried and it had a nice reddish, orange-brown color that suggested that it would be a little spicy. It wasn't, although it was seasoned very nicely. The meat was very moist although at points it could be a little too moist, even oozey at times. Overall, very good though. We had a little (slightly old) ranch dressing in the fridge and it was excellent with the chicken. Also, the Sprite was to die for.

Overall, it left me satisfied and it was definitely well worth the $4.50. On a scale from 0 to 5 (5 being the best, obvi) I'll give it a solid 3.5 burps.

Up next we skip ahead to Chicken Ranch Special #6 (their #'s 2-5 are chicken specials with more pieces).
