    Ha, this is funny as I've just recently discovered Albertsons deli chicken wings as well... pretty amazing tasting deal for literally only 2 or 3 bucks.

    They sold an eight piece dark pack for $5.99. On Cheep Chicken Mondays it was $4.99. Safeway uses their recipe now, but I won't go in my local Safeway. Very poor service.

    I'll give another vote for Yardbird and also think Crack Shack at Park MGM is pretty good too.

    Hattie B's has been my favorite so far in Vegas, also pretty cheap for Vegas! Bavette's was also amazing, but the portion is HUGE, definitely enough for 2-3 people to share. I think I made it through half

    I'm an Ellis fan. Chix not my fave there but as a change of pace, I tried it. Excellent. I agree with roycpa, frying is frying. The secret is clean, hot oil, & eating it fresh..Everyone can do it. If the cooking isn't screwed up, the chicken should be good. I do have to agree with roycpa again, franchises do have the best for convenience.. That's what they do. Back to Ellis, I don't know if the Chix is gone but it was good.

    Another vote for Crack Shack… the fried Jidori chicken is not cheap but it almost made me black out after the first bite, so well worth the cost :thumbsup:

    We tried it last trip (about a month ago) and was underwhelmed and yes a bit expensive.

    This.

    We also tried it about a month ago and it was so bad we literally ate maybe 20% of the food and just left it and didnt even take the leftovers it was that horrid. Both items tasted the same like an overpriced lukewarm glop of unmelted cheese

    Value pick for tenders or bites, the chicken tenders (white meat whole tenderloin freshly breaded) over at NYNY's America which are in the MLife network (potentially savings for military) and are $12 which is cheap considering it's a sit down on the strip...Had them twice over the past few days, both times they cooked to perfection

    Another value pick but is a fast casual chain, Shake Shacks either chicken sandwich or the bites (like nuggets)...They know what they're doing, they sous vide them prior to frying them

    I couldn't imagine going to Joes and getting chicken but of course to each his own

    Had Hattie B's delivered to the Cosmo Sports book on Saturday and ate at crack shack on Sunday - I think I prefer Crack Shack - great location and was not crowded at all when we went

    After last night.... Blue Ribbon at Cosmopolitan

    Glad it on the bone. Had some great fried chicken elsewhere, but all boneless. I think it stays juicier on-the-bone.

    My favourite chicken in Vegas:

    Yardbird
    Pok Pok Wing at Cosmo (I think this might have closed?)
    Sticky Chicken at the Linq (also closed I think)
    Bruxies Chicken n Waffles and NYNY (if this has closed, I'm cancelling my flights :haha: )
