So, this menu item is also recommended. It’s three pieces of chicken, each of them representing the three kinds of chicken available at AQ: original pan-fried, over the coals & honey barbecue. This is a perfectly fine meal; it comes with a couple of sides of course, which you can choose. I recommend the macaroni & cheese, which comes with a nice green something or other sprinkled on top of it. Anyway, I spent an insane amount of time last time gushing about the chicken over the coals, so let’s mention the others. The original pan-fried chicken is fine; it’s better than fine. I mean, it’s better than the average fried chicken you’re going to find for sure. It isn’t the best I’ve ever had (more on that later!), but it’s probably third or fourth best as far as regular, plain fried chicken goes. The honey barbecue is also good; the sauce is sweet, a little too sweet, at the expense of being spicy or even just having that good old barbecue sauce twang, but it’s a solid, completely satisfying piece of chicken. If you’re into the variety, this is a fine meal. If you’re only going to have one meal at AQ, I recommend you skip this one and just get chicken over the coals, but this is a solid, very satisfying sampler, if you’re a bit nervous about whether you’ll like the over the coals variety. Recommended. 3 ½ stars.
tl;dr – original, over the coals and honey barbecue chicken add up to a solid three piece meal that satisfies completely. 3 ½ stars.
Next time, we’ll take in one last dish at AQ and, fittingly, we’ll top off all this chicken with a refreshing dessert.
