Chicken Strips at Jack Astor's
Where to get Chicken Strips

2010 Feb 17
I was dragged here before a concert last night and was pleasantly suprised on the food. Chicken batter was cripsy. Served with plum sauce and fries. Reasonably priced.
My friend ordered some sort of spicy chicken wrap on rice paper but the waiter came out with a different plate all together (not to my knowledge).. anywho our waiter was really cool about it and offered her free dessert or a new entree.
Kudos to JA for being able to serve a full house (they even started playing John Mayer music for all of the anxious fans), the service was so fast yet we didn't feel rushed at all.

I went here today for lunch with colleagues. I would not return unless it was a group event. I also had the hot buffalo chicken fingers - they were a bit soggy, although the heat level was what I was expecting. The worst part were the fries! cold and absolutely covered in salt. I couldn't eat them - this is a first for me. I told the waitress when she came to pick up the plate, and she peered them and said - they don't look too salty.

Work was footing the bill so I didn't care, but be warned!

We also shared the nacho platter and the hot crab and lobster dip. Neither was particular spectacular. The Nacho plate was big, but they only provided one tiny container of salsa - more was brought on request.

A colleague had the beef salad and it looked pretty good - I'd go with that the next time. Generally it's better to stay away from these places.

Having heard that the chicken strips here are prepared fresh to order (not frozen) I opted to try their Buffalo Chicken Fingers. I asked for the hot buffalo wing sauce, but on the side because I don't like soggy fried stuff. When it arrived, it appeared that the sauce was missing altogether. I pointed it out to the server and she said that they'd already tossed the chicken in the sauce and she'd take it away and bring me a new one (kudos for that). Not wanting to waste food, and seeing that the chicken wasn't soggy, I chose to keep what I got.

In retrospect, I should have sent it back because this was so spicy that I couldn't really taste the chicken and batter to notice any benefit from its fresh preparation. They offer mild, medium, or hot. Anyway, I can't say much about it except that the hot is pretty hot! :-)
