If you haven’t heard about Slim Chickens, you will soon. This growing restaurant chain is quickly becoming a favorite among chicken lovers across the country.
Slim Chickens is a fast-casual restaurant chain specializing in chicken dishes. It was founded in 2003 by Greg Smart and Tom Gordon in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The company has more than 100 locations across the United States. It may remind you of Zaxby’s, but with a larger variety of menu options.
The casual, counter-service restaurant has a fun and festive atmosphere. And, the food is reasonably priced.
For smaller appetites, there are two items on the kids’ menu (a chicken tender meal and a mac n cheese meal) and for hungry families, there are family meals (picnic pack, grab and go pack, southern style family pack, and the crowd pleaser pack).
What makes Slim Chickens so special? For starters, all of their chicken is marinated in a buttermilk mixture and hand-breaded. They also have 17 different dipping sauces to choose from, including Buffalo, Honey Mustard, and Ranch.
Slim Chickens Menu
Their signature chicken strip is a must-try. It is served with your choice of sauce, French fries, toast, and a drink.
There are four chicken sandwiches on the menu: Chicken Club, Cayenne Ranch, Buffalo Ranch, and Crispy Chicken.
If wings are your thing, you can order a meal with 6 wings or 8 wings or as part of a combo meal with chicken tenders (3 wings and 3 tenders or 5 wings and 5 chicken tenders).
And if you’re looking for something a little lighter, wraps (Smokey Cheddar, Buffalo, and Slim’s) and their signature salad (Slim’s Salad) that comes with salad greens, chicken tenders, shredded cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes, fried onions, carrots, and croutons.
If you like strawberries, they have the seasonally available Fresh Grilled Chicken Strawberry Salad which has feta cheese crumbles, crisp cucumbers, candied pecans, strawberries, and grilled chicken tenders.
There are 9 side items at Slim Chickens: fried okra, mac & cheese, coleslaw, potato salad, French fries, ranch chips, fried pickles, fried mushrooms, and side salad.
To top off your meal, Slim Chickens has 4 milkshakes (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and Oreo) on the menu, as well as decadent jar desserts with chocolate brownie pudding, strawberry cheesecake, and Oreo cheesecake. And if those sound like too much, there is always the simple chocolate brownie that you can order.
Before you go, be sure to check out their app. You can earn rewards, find out about new menu items, and get exclusive deals. (I got the Cayenne Ranch Sandwich free using the app.)
