I really enjoy this home cooking style fried chicken. First, the breading is very light with church on the edges. Remember, a heavy batter is to disguise the lack of taste in most chicken joints. But this place uses good chicken so it has a good flavor and good seasoning, not too overpowering where you can't taste the food. Also, it's not too greasy, that's a plus, yes, it will have grease, but it doesn't slide down your fingers like the others. The only thing I wish they have, is bigger portion for their sides. I usually ordered the marconi salad, mashed with gravy, and the "SWEET POTATO FRIES". I don't know what they put into these babies, but they are addictive, I couldn't stop eating these, even when the grease is soaking though the paper bag, something I abhor. Kudos for them, for their good old fashion service, something you haven't seen in N.Y.C. in a while. The price is cheaper than KFC and 10 times cleaner, also their bathroom doesn't smell nor wet all over the floor. I don't understand why people flock to KFC, everything is process, and their service is rude. For a change, try this place if you like real food.
Buffalo Wild Wings has really tasty boneless wings and a variety of awesome sauces. Indeed, we could use the word "awesomesauce" to unironically describe the sauce. I have been to this location four times now, and my experience has always been consistent. The team members are friendly, they take your order, answer your questions, then leave you alone. The food comes out in less than 10 minutes. The bar area sees a brisk business during weekday lunches and in the evenings. However most of the time the rest of the dining floor is not at capacity. I once had a mistake in my order. I got a salad with cheese on top of it, even though I asked that there be no dairy, stating that I have a dairy allergy. When I pointed out the error it was no big deal, and I got a second plate, correctly prepared, within a reasonable amount of time. My kids think this is the best restaurant ever. They call it The Chicken Nuggets Restaurant. It isn't luxurious but I do love that we can all consistently find something to eat there without a fight, fuss, or headache.
Europa still sells patries, it's around the corner from the restaurant it's just much smaller then it was, because they turned the rest into a restaurant. Every one has different taste when it comes to food. I happen to be a picky eater, especially when it comes to italian food since I was born and raised very italian. Europa offers a very friendly "atmospher" and if you talk to people who live in the neighborhood that have eaten at Europa I'm sure they will tell you that the pizza is really good and the prices are reasonable. It's not more expensive then other places. The menu is "not" very long, but I happen to like that, doesn't confuse me. I feel you can't say that the food isn't good but then again, it's a matter of taste, my husband and I eat at Europa at least twice a month.
