A sign at Made It Myself says that Chicken Joes will soon be in town.

Any thoughts?

    Let me put it this way, not a health food spot. High school kids love it!

      I think it will be a hit. Chicken Joe's/Garden Catering are a gem because they are a huge step above fast food (in terms of quality), and can be as healthy/unhealthy as you want it to be...hence it caters to everyone

        yeah...just looked at the menu from the site in G'wich. jfood will keep and open mind and give it a try. Maybe they will have a good hot dog, paws crossed.

          I would not go expecting a ground breaking hot dog. These places are known for their nugget combos ("high school special" at chicken joe's, "the special" at garden catering). $6 for the best damn lunch (it gets boring after a while, even after trying all the combos).

          What's nice is that they do have a deep menu so variety is great. Just remember the seasoning at the end of the order.

            Thanks DE. Jfood once ate the HS special at Garden in STM and wished he had not. Them HS'ers are much tougher at 17.

            Could be a long putt for jfood.
