Located along the quieter portion of Queen East between Leslieville & the Beach, Chick-N-Joy is a take-out joint that has been frying chicken since 1977. Not to be confused with the inferior-tasting chain restaurant with a similar name, Chick-N-Joy’s bold claim of “Love at First Bite” is not falsely advertised. Try one of their $6 lunch specials or try and take down their 4-piece Dinner ($8.65) that’s filled to the brim with chook, fresh-cut fries, a side-dish of your choosing and a dinner roll. Somehow I managed to finish it in one sitting.
The portions are huge; the prices are good; the food is tasty. There isn’t really much more that can be (or needs to be) said… other than N-Joy.
