Review by KatieMolinaro on February 26, 2009:
- This restaurant gets its name from the fact that it serves veggie chicken and real chicken. Because it's a small restaurant you could end up sitting very close to someone eating a real chicken drumstick or breast. The service was really great and friendly and quick. There is a separate Veggie Chicken menu, but be aware that the veggie chicken nuggets are dipped in egg and there is mayo on the chicken sandwich (you can ask for no mayo). Most of the veggie chicken was the citrus spare ribs from May Wah, and while I appreciate the veggie offerings, I won't return because the food just didn't really stand out.

- Passed by here amillion times. Just kinda divert my veiw away from it-I guess cause of the name. Totally thrown off by "chicken for the people". What veg person would be interested in a place named like that? Totally not interested in chicken for anybody; quite frankly, just the opposite I'd say.
