Tender Fresh Fried & BBQ Chicken (Tenderbest)
This is the stuff of affordable but indulgent Friday lunches. The menu is fairly extensive and ranges from Fish & Chips to Grilled Lamb Chops, but the draw here is indisputably the BBQ Spring Chicken and BBQ Wings. Moist, flavourful, filling, and best of all – doesn’t break the bank. A standing lunch date might be in order.
