Family of 6 with 4 teenagers. Got the 2whole chicken meal for 8. Had the salad & French fries as our sides. All very very good! Salad fresh, French fries really good. (Could not finish them all, and that's saying a lot with 4 teenagers) chicken delicious!! Brought almost a whole one home. Did take a while, but worth it!
