Saw this place as I was driving by and stopped to get chicken tenders. I was not impressed by the staff as they seemed dis-interested in being there however the food was AMAZING!!!! The chicken tenders were obviously hand breaded and cooked to order. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality as the location feels like a fast food joint... More

I've eaten here before, so I wanted to give it another try to see whether my taste buds were off, you know, was it just me. Pollard's fried chicken is nothing to boast about, salt and maybe pepper for taste is about it, no other seasoning, if there is, no hint of it. I guess the bland taste is what... More

My friend and I have talked about going here for over a year. Every time we pass it we say well maybe next time. Well today we were getting close to going to McDonald's and I told my friend lets go to Pollard's Chicken. She said okay. The best decision we made today. Food was hot, chicken livers cooked wonderful... More

We have used Pollards on many occasions for catering our functions; last week was over the top. Fried chicken, BBQ, rolls, and chicken livers, plus sides. We fed about 80 hungry folks; the meal was cooked perfect, not greasy, brought to us wrapped and hot. This the best fried chicken I've had, and the chicken livers were legit! They have... More

Pollard's seems to have a loyal local following in the Tidewater area. For the life of me I don't know why. The fried chicken is ok, not great, the pieces are usually very small and the sides are practically served in dixie cups. Just not a fan.

Always see the commercials, and decided we needed to try it next time we were across the water. Everything was great! Staff was friendly and very reasonable prices.

We got 2 pieces of white meat chicken, a side and a soda along with a "puff" for $6 Included refills. The chicken is fried when ordered so it hasn't been sitting around all day. They even brought the order to us. Chicken was excellent. I had the hot apples as a side and they were good. The desserts looked... More

We see the TV advertisements for Pollards Chicken all the time and decided to try it out. We are local but do not live close to any Pollards Chicken locations, so it was a bit of a drive. We ordered 16 pieces of dark meat chicken to take home with just one side. While waiting for our order, we noticed... More

Good chicken, fair corn pudding, canned "greens" (yuk!). I got a special $5.79 plate which included a wing and a breast of delightfully, delicately coated fried chicken. De-double-licious! Corn pudding was okay, and homemade, but not as good as my old family recipe! When I found out the greens were right out of a can, I passed on getting those.... More

So glad we finally decided to try this place out. The food was awesome. We got a gizzard "snack " and it was more food than we could eat. Delicious country style sides and those "puffs"! Oh my the puffs with honey are worth stopping in for if nothing else. Cant wait to try their regular chicken. The servers were... More
