Louisiana FriedChicken- Spring Valley

Quickie cuz thats the mood I am in currently:

I had a mean craving for fried and battered __________ with hot sauce so I gave this joint another chance.  I rarely eat fried chicken and I havent always been happy with the caliber of the food here on previous occasions. They offer the usual suspects i.e. fried chicken/ shrimp/ fish/ gizzards and sides like mashed taters, collard greens, gumbo, rolls, mac salad, etc.  Now they offer mac and cheese! And yams and potato salad but that doesnt excite me much.  For optimal fried skin real estate, I went with the 4 chicken nuggets with a side of mac and cheese and side of mashed potatoes.  See here:

Okay so here is the down low on this meal.  The mashed taters were the biggest disappointment.  Looks like a deep intense wasnt.  Potatoes tasted too instant-y and gravy was very bland.  The mac and cheese was decent...Not enough on the cheese, too much on the sauce.  The chicken nuggets were 2 bucks for four and they didnt make me happy either.  Portion was small and the batter didnt have the same taste/ texture as I remember their actual fried chicken pieces having.  It was made of white meat however so I could feel a little righteous about that I suppose.  Bottom line?  It will probably be awhile before I go back here.  


  1. Oh that's too bad. I've read about it and filed it away in my mind to try it.

  2. That's too bad! Have you been to Crispy Fried Chicken on El Cajon Blvd? That place is awesome - the chicken is really good. The mashed potatoes are that lame instant kind though. I also love their shrimp.
