I rarely eat fast food. I prefer waking up a little bit early each Monday to prepare food for the entire week instead of buying junk food — even if junk food is convenient, time-saving and American-style.
However, one restaurant, Golden Chick, located at 5800 S Pennsylvania Ave., has changed that.
I still remember the first time I went to Golden Chick. It was nearly 9 p.m. on a Friday and I was too tired to cook dinner.
So, I decided to Google nearby restaurants and found this store was about eight minutes driving time from the OCCC campus.
The staff was cleaning up when I came in. Of the food I wanted, none was prepared since it was at the end of the night.
One staff member asked me to wait for 15 to 20 minutes so they could cook my order fresh.
Then she gave me a large drink for free and told me that they would never let any customers wait that long and hoped I would not mind.
While I were waiting, all the staff kept communicating with me because, in my opinion, they might not want me to feel bored.
They also gave me extra food and kept apologizing for keeping me waiting.
That visit turned me into a faithful customer.
But back to the delicious food. The chicken is fresh and well-cooked. My nephew also has become addicted to Golden Chick. He now asks me to buy chicken there every Friday.
Everyone should visit once and enjoy the service at Golden Chick. I am sure it’s an experience you will never forget.
