The chain was founded on a craving for freshly-cooked, succulent-to-the-bone, and delicious chicken but there were no restaurants that can satisfy it. Thus, the owners started experimenting with their chicken recipes in their garage and a restaurant was born. The first Slim Chickens restaurant was opened in Fayetteville, Arkansas in 2003.
After more than a decade in operation, the chain has grown to several restaurants in Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Illinois and Ohio with more planned for opening in other states.
What They’re Famous For
Slim Chickens continues to build its niche in the fast casual dining sector through its hand-breaded chicken tenders and fresh Buffalo wings coupled with the chain’s signature handmade dipping sauces. These food items are the bestsellers in the restaurants for good reasons – the chicken tenders and fresh Buffalo wings are savory, succulent and delicious on their own. But when these are combined with the dipping sauces, the results are spectacular!
The chain is also known for its charitable initiatives and community involvement, thus, its claim that the chicken dishes are changing lives. The company establishes partnerships with regional and national charitable organizations for various causes, donates food to community events, and helps in local fundraisers.
Why Eat Here
Slim Chickens is among the best places to satisfy your intense cravings for the best parts of a chicken – the wings and breast, as well as the tenders. This isn’t just an exaggerated marketing claim as most of its customers can attest to the chain’s superior chicken tenders, Buffalo wings, and fried chicken breast. The meat has a succulent, tender and flavorful quality to it so much so that each bite is worth the effort placed into it – think the best Southern fried chicken and you get the idea.
The menu also includes combo meals that cater to the hungry appetites of both individuals and groups of families and friends. These include combo meals like:
- Slims Box with five tenders, two dipping sauces, cookie and chips.
- Chicks Box with three tenders, one dipping sauce, cookie and chips.
- 6 Wing Box with six wings, one dipping sauce, cookie and chips.
- 3&3 Box with three wings, three tenders and two dipping sauces plus with the chips and cookie.
The chain also offers chicken dishes served with sandwiches, wraps, and salads. These include the Cayenne Ranch Chicken Sandwich Box with fried chicken breast, toasted bun filled with lettuce, fried onions, and pickles with cayenne seasoning; the Wrap Box with chicken tenders, tomato and lettuce with ranch dressing; and Smokey Cheddar Wrap Box with tangy BBQ tenders, lettuce, shredded cheese and ranch dressing. Every box comes with chips and cookie, too.
These boxes are also available as plates – the dishes are served in dine-in plates instead of the boxes. Plus, there’s also a Kid’s Box with two tenders, a dipping sauce, chips and cookie, a popular option for parents with their kids in tow. The Kid’s Box is only available for kids 10 years old and below.
Of course, chickens aren’t the only food items on the menu. Diners, after all, will want variety in their meals so the Slim Chickens chain also added salads, chicken sandwiches, and even waffles.
The choices include Slims Salad with fresh greens, a choice between fried and grilled tenders, tomatoes, cheese, cucumbers, fried onion straws, carrots, and croutons; Buffalo Blues salad with fresh greens, a choice between fried and grilled tenders shaken in the signature Buffalo wing sauce, diced celery, blue cheese crumbles, and croutons; and Chicken and Waffles with three chicken tenders on a golden waffle with generous doses of butter and syrup.
The food items are above par obviously but the food selection isn’t the be-all and end-all of the best restaurants. The Slim Chickens restaurants are also must-go places for other notable reasons, thus, its enduring popularity in the fast casual restaurant sector.
For one thing, the wait staff at all the Slim Chickens restaurants are friendly, courteous and helpful to the diners. Your dining experience may not be on par with fine dining restaurants but it will be an enjoyable one, nonetheless, because of the great service provided by the servers.
For another thing, the amenities and facilities are well-maintained so you don’t have to worry about unhygienic restrooms and the like. The welcoming atmosphere and lively vibe, thanks to the groups of families and friends, is a plus, too.
