Blue Ribbon opened a fried chicken joint? Oh yes it did.
Blue Ribbon has long been known for their excellent fried chicken, but they've only just finally, blissfully opened a spot dedicated to delicious crispy birds -- because, while bowling is obviously the best, sometimes you just need to focus on nothing but piling the thighs and wings as high as possible.
Place your order, pick a seat, pick it up, and get down to business. That's more or less all you need to know about the bright, cafeteria-esque space.
Each piece is expertly dusted with just enough spice backstage...
... so that it's ready for the show, aka, being housed by you. It's also served up with a piece of rosemary & sea salt toast, fries, and a slew of specialty honeys infused with the likes of wildflower, chipotle, and mustard. Apply liberally.
New to this spot is the "Beak to Butt", cheap and tasty morsels of necks and backs that will no longer go overlooked, and come covered in hot peppers and their signature hot sauce.
Also new to this location is a series of griddled chicken burgers, which you should load up with bacon, pineapple, or a bunch of different cheeses.
Also, better make it a double.
Leave some room for The Works potato wedges topped with sour cream, cheese, and bacon.
If, for some reason, all you want is beer and their specialty ice cream like carrot habanero or bourbon, chocolate, and hazelnut, hit the iPad station directly next to the kitchen and skip all the chicken lovers in line. Expect them to mock you, rightfully.
