It has been a long time since we had "Byron Center Chicken." Just like I remember, great dinner. Love the extra side choices.

I used to go here as a child and new the family that owned this personally back in the day. The famous chicken dinners were legendary and was something that people would wait for.

Have driven past here many times and finally decided to stop. So not worth the stop. Ordered a burger, med/well and it was char broiled, no flavor at all!!! Limited menu, just burger or a couple chicken dishes and beer. This was on a Monday night. Don't see us ever going back.

We arrived at 8:45 and ordered roast chicken and a burrito. The food was fine and the waitress very pleasant. The 1/2 chicken was in one piece with wing, leg, breast attached. The mashed potatoes come with a tablespoon of gravy. The corn comes in a styrofoam container which actually kept it warm-looked tacky but worked fine. The upgrades since... More
