Dinner at Church’s Chicken

Dinner at Church’s Chicken at Huntington and Shamrock. Got the “3Pc Mixed” with a biscuit, fried okra as a side, and an iced tea for $8.79. Okay, keeping in mind that we’re not talking health food here, the chicken and iced tea were good, the okra was an experiment and was okay though I confess I’d probably get fries if I ordered it again. And good price.

Dinner at Mooyah Burger

Dinner at Mooyah Burger recently. Got The Paleo burger- lettuce instead of a bun, two patties of beef, bacon and avocado - for $10.57, fries for $3.29, and an iced tea for $2.49. (Those are the regular prices; I had a coupon.) The lettuce bun was different but good. Nice meal.

Dinner at Monrovian

Dinner at the Monrovian, at the corner of Myrtle and Colorado. Got the Deep Fried Chicken for $12.99 and an iced tea for $2.69. It comes with soup or salad, which I ate so you can’t see it, and a potato, which I swapped out for cottage cheese. Very tasty and filling. 

Just a few extra notes:

My wife likes that she can get fresh sliced turkey here. Most places, she said, give you lunch meat style turkey. 

The restaurant is changing ownership but for now things seem the same, with a notice near the door saying, “The staff will remain! We will continue on as usual with the exception of some updates to the menu and restaurant.”

Lunch at Chicken King Express

Lunch at Chicken King Express, in the shopping area at the northeast corner of Foothill and Magnolia. Got the Roasted Chicken Wrap Combo with hummus and pickles for $7.95, and a drink for $2.25. Very good!


By the way, the word “express” may suggest the food is ready right away. It’s not. I’d recommend calling in your order about 15 minutes before you want to eat.
