New Fried Chicken Restaurant Elm Street In Manchester?

I go to the YMCA, and today I happened to come down Elm St instead of my usual route of Canal. I noticed a "Grand Opening" of a fried chicken restaurant where Quiznos and a Pawn Shop used to be. Does anyone know when it will open? I was at the gym at 8am, and had an appointment so I didn't stop.

    I noticed that the other day, too. It's a chain, but that's not always an indicator of bad things. Particularly if it's not an American chain. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pollo_Ca...

        I had some last night. It's pretty good but I don't think it's related to the Pollo Campero chain. The menu looks identical to the Crown Fried chicken over on Beech Street including kebabs and Jamaican patties.

        I had fried chicken and a Jamaican patty. Both were good, the patty definitely wasn't homemade and wasn't very spicy but the cost is low. Atmosphere is pretty average and they didn't appear to have AC.

        I got just the fried chicken over weekend, it was good,fresh, tasty, good value at just over $10
        Would buy again, just a tough spot to park and run in
