Hi Five Chicken (Kingsway): Hit and Miss
Recently, Hi Five Chicken opened up a new location on Kingsway in Burnaby. I had a bit of trouble finding this place because I wasn’t expecting it to be in a part of the former Earl’s location and walked right past it a couple of times before realizing it was there.
I would up ordering online (which was pretty easy and came with 10% off). On my first visit here, I picked up the Home Style Spicy Chicken Sandwich ($8.45 + $1.15 for added bacon) and paired it with Mac and Cheese Bites $5.95). Both of these items really fell sub-par in my opinion… especially when you see pictures of what their menu says it looks like. The mac and cheese definitely isn’t worth it and has very little mac and cheese on the inside. As for the spicy chicken sandwich, the menu says it comes with a spicy mayo sauce but it actually just came with a little packet of hot sauce… definitely not a creamy spicy mayo sauce that’s for sure.
I did come back and order from their regular chicken menu and found that it’s better. The 10pc Family Meal comes with 5 legs and 5 wings, 3 large sides, and a two-litre soft drink… overall, a good value and their fried chicken is pretty good. My only complaint is that the chicken here seemed excessively oily (I know, I know… it’s fried chicken).
I’ve been to a few of their other locations and they’re usually pretty good. Hoping that the quality goes up a bit at this location as they work out their grand opening kinks.
