LOL! I saw that and was like

Not sure what to think of St. Augsitine's. They have a bit of an identity crisis - a dive bar or a wannabe upscale pub on The Drive.

1. The fried chicken was pretty good. Not as good as home, but I think better than the KFC and churches by a bit.
2. Gravy was ok, a touch salty, but not overly so.
3. Onion rings were WAY too salty.
4. Coleslaw was total meh. Not gross, but not good either.

For $16, it's actually pretty good considering you're getting this at a pub.

The rosemary isn't wasted. It's been deep fried.
Eat it along with your chicken. It's good.
And I for one am happy that they have decent food as well as an extensive beer collection. I mean, it's not like they are charging a lot more for their beer to have decent food there.

I'd even go so far to say that their poutine and pizza was well above expectations.

even though its used mostly for the aroma, it tastes bitter as fuck alone and it gives you the worst stomach ache ever.

i love using it for roast lamb and chicken then take it out when the roast is done but would never eat it alone it tastes like pine leaves.

I've tried Max's chicken. They only sell it as a whole chicken for $14. They deep fry the entire chicken. The brine they use has lemon/lime in it. To me it just tastes like those whole roasted chicken you get at walmart/superstore but deep fried, but its 5.99 at the super market. It could have been like that because I didn't eat it at the restaurant, and got take out.

Wasted my time going to try Max's Chicken today. I show up at noon, they're supposedly open for dinner only despite their menu showing all day breakfast.

I went to Chicken World on tues and bought 10 piece for dinner and it was pretty disappointing, I was expecting fresh fried chicken but instead I just got pieces that were from the heated tray. I don't know if it had anything to do with being on a Tuesday so everyone just went to KFC.

Anyways the chicken turned out to be pretty dry on the inside , but the skin was very crispy even though it wasn't fresh fried and not oily like churches/kfc, the zucchini sticks were pretty good though, was fried when we ordered and was still crispy by the time I got home and not oily.

Theres sizes for zucchini? I think there's only 1 size cuz it wasn't pictured on the menu so I asked the guy if they had it and he said yes like $ 2 for 4-8 pieces depending on size, and I got like 8 pieces, each piece was like the size of a potato wedge, more than I expected

Had churches chicken the other day.

Told the guy to make fresh chicken, and he said he just took the chicken out.
