Has anyone been to this place on Quadra? Just finally got through to them after trying to call for pickup for two Fridays in a row and right now my chicken will be ready at 730. They are already out of potato wedges for the night and apparently have a line a line out the door. I am expecting some pretty good chicken right now.

I guess they call it that because you feel like you've won the lottery when you go there?

Ha! Totally.

Yeah the chicken is awesome. It’s insanely popular and they do sell out of virtually everything every night.

Know it all.

It was pretty good. Way too much food though.

Maybe that's why they run out of stuff!

Tried it recently and it was good. Are there other korean fried chicken places in Victoria?

Chimac on Yates @ Wharf come to mind. It's a pub style sit down place, not geared to take out, but still great chicken.

Thunderbird in Cook St Village. There's decent KFC at Persimmon Tree in Langford (near Everything Wine) as well, though their menu is so nice I'd opt to try a few things, not just the chicken.

There's a KFC on Goldstream as well, oh, probably not the same thing.
