Restaurant Review: Mad For Chicken

Details: Located at 157-13 Northern Blvd., Flushing, NY 11354. Official site is

I’ve been to this place a couple of times as well as its Manhattan location (the Manhattan location has since been renamed Turntable Chicken Jazz… I didn’t name it). This is your standard Korean fried chicken place.

The first thing I noticed was the size of the place. The last time I was here it was fairly small. They’ve since purchased the store next door and expanded into a larger space with a more open area in the back as well as a bar. In addition, the menu here is a lot larger than the menu at Turntable Jazz Chicken. There are all sorts of greasy foods that look good with a beer.

We ordered a plate of soy garlic wings, the La Poutine (fries with gravy, pork, corn, onion, mozzarella, and cheddar cheese), Parmesan fries, mac and melted cheese, a bulgogi sandwich, and the avocado salad. It was all pretty good. Nothing worth any Michelin stars, but good, greasy bar food.

Score: 6/10
