How is Wright's Chicken Farm?

How is the food at Wright's Farm where I heard they serve up chicken to the masses? Is it particularly good and worth driving out of your way for as a destination if you don't live anywhere nearby, or is it pretty ordinary fare? Would love to hear comments from people who have been. This is in Harrisville, RI.

  1. I've been there, but it was back in 2003, and as the only non family member for a wedding rehearsal dinner with both families full of lunatics, so take the review with a grain of salt. The chicken was quite tasty, but the sides were nothing to write home about. I wouldn't go back, but again, that could just be the disastrous company I was with coloring my recollection.

      This has got to be one of the funniest reviews I ever read! How did the Wedding turn out with the lunatic families? Is the couple still married? How did you become part of the wedding party? LOL!

        The couple is still married. We met in college, although they knew each other before hand through the LaSalle school system. The lunatic families still cause them problems, and they caused problems at the wedding, there was fainting, a fire, and the wedding wasn't even official because someone "misplaced" the wedding license. My poor friends had to go to the Justice of the Peace's house the next day to have the document officially signed before they left for the honeymoon.

      1. The chicken is solid and the sides are ok. I admit I find the shells and sauce strangely addictive and the heavily dressed salad is tasty in a heavily dressed tossed salad kind of way.

        If you've never been and you are from the area you need to go at least once to experience it for yourself. But go for the total experience - i.e. the drive to the deepest, darkest heart of Burillville, the gift shop, the people watching, the massive dining rooms - not just the food.

        Where are you coming from?

        1. It has been around for a long time!

          1. Thanks for all the comments. Not much of an endorsement to visit.

              Frobisher's post is right on target. The food is ok, but the place is a trip. Go once!
