Chicken shops have been around for a very long time, so much so, you’re highly likely to find one in every suburb. Located in the newly developed Walkerville precinct is The Walker Grill. Set in modern surrounds, the shop offers charcoal chicken, chip packs, hot packs, salad packs, Hawaiian packs, snacks, seafood, snack packs and grilled items. There’s also a selection of nine salads which is available in four different sizes.
For lunch, I started off with the Half Chicken Salad Pack. The chicken was moist and succulent, while the skin was perfectly crisp. Many chicken shops tend to over salt their chicken, but this place prepares them just right. I even liked the seasoning which was well refined. The dish came with a Greek Coleslaw and Greek Salad. The Greek Coleslaw came in a smooth and creamy dressing, and as was the case with both salads, the vegetables were fresh and crisp.
Next was the Chicken AB. Generous morsels of charcoal chicken were sitting on a bed of crunchy chips. The sauces were garlic sauce, sweet chilli sauce and tomato sauce, all of which were liberally applied. Perfect for a hangover cure or for anytime of the day.
There’s a lot to like about The Walker Grill. The chickens used are the best free range you can get and everything is made in house. The staff are super friendly and there is the option to dine in their modern surrounds. The Half Chicken Salad Pack will set you back $14, and the large AB $15.50. These prices are on par with other chicken shops around the place.
The Walker Grill is open everyday from 11am-8:30pm including public holidays.
