Don't let the simple ambiance fool you. The food is first rate. Try the chicken curry or the fried chicken. The owner, Doc, is a sweetheart. Great food at reasonable prices.

I have been eating at Chicken Lavish for many years. Service is always good and freindly. I happen to like the fried chicken, my wife likes the sweet & sour chicken. Jerk chicken is good too, just a little too spicy for my taste though.

Of course there is different dishes for different tastes, a must try if you enjoy great food and great... More

Usually stop by at least once to get some delicious fried chicken... one of my must stop spots. Eat in or take out it's always good. Say Hi to Doc for me!
