It is funny to see a tag line from a company whose name is Shrimp Boat but claims there is not any chicken like Shrimp Boat chicken. Today we stop by the Shrimp Boat in Rock Hill, SC located on S. Heckle Blvd to see if the claim is true. This is the review of Shrimp Boat Rock Hill SC.
The Shrimp Boat has been serving the Rock Hill, SC area since 1964. Originally part of a franchise dating back to the 1960’s, it is now independently owned and operated. There are two stores in Rock Hill area and one that is separately owned in nearby Lancaster, SC. You can read more about the history of the Shrimp Boat from my friends at Marie, Let’s Eat! Furthermore, they have done a lot of research on the history of this franchise and it would be a discredit to not showcase their work! After all, I am here to share with you the food from these awesome places but I do like to give a brief history to its existence if I can find it.
The food is cooked to order which separates it from fast food that may be cooked and sit under heat lamps for a while.
The Shrimp Boat is a casual dining restaurant. You come in and order your food, next you take your seat and they bring it out to you. The food is cooked to order which separates it from fast food that may be cooked and sit under heat lamps for a while. The restaurant is always clean and the people working are friendly. When I used to work on alarms systems I frequently visited the area restaurants. Shrimp Boat was one of the cleanest I have ever been in, especially for the age of the place. There was always someone in the back mopping and cleaning. Additionally, I have been to other restaurants in the Rock Hill area that the floors were so greasy that you could barely stand.
The meat was tender, moist, and succulent. It had an excellent crust that just crumbles in your mouth.
The Shrimp Boat brings their food out piping hot. On this occasion, I ordered their chicken tenders. The meat was tender, moist, and succulent. It had an excellent crust that just crumbles in your mouth. I love their fries which are crinkle cut fries. Even though the fries are most likely pre-frozen, and not cut fresh, they are still delicious. They are cooked to perfection just the way I like. In fact, they have even started adding a little seasoning salt which I believe is an awesome touch. All in all, this is some of the best chicken I have ever had. I would rank it near the top of my list. One of these days I will bring myself to try their calabash shrimp or that awesome looking chuckwagon sandwich.
Wow, that was a great review. I really loved doing this one. I hope you enjoyed it too. If you would like to see other reviews on restaurants in the South Carolina area click on this link here.

To truly create something great you have to do it the Stubborn Way.
Every since that first sip of ice cold soda, people have been hooked on it. Soda is fizzy, sweet, bubbly, and refreshing. People love soda and it is evident by how much the two big ones, Coke and Pepsi sell. Now soda is like fast food or other sweets, it is meant to be enjoyed on occasion and not an everyday thing. Most of the big companies have resulted to using cheaper ingredients like high fructose corn syrup that is not as good for you. Meanwhile, there are a plethora of craft sodas that are popping up that offer better ingredients like real cane sugar and no artificial flavors. This week we are reviewing Stubborn Soda Black Cherry with Tarragon Flavor. Continue reading “Stubborn Soda Black Cherry with Tarragon Flavor”
There are few things in this world as popular as popcorn. Just recently the family and I went to the movie theater and as soon as you walk into the door, that smell of freshly popped popcorn hits you in the face. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had popcorn air fresheners all throughout the place trying to get you to buy more. No doubt, Americans love their popcorn. We especially love it flavored. Butter, cheese, and caramel flavored among some of the most popular flavor options. Well, I have found a company that has added the popular Sriracha hot sauce to their offerings. This week we are reviewing Popcorn, Indiana Sriracha Popcorn. Continue reading “Popcorn, Indiana Sriracha Popcorn”

This week on Southern Food Junkie we are doing a food review. What a better way to start it off than with one of the south’s favorite foods, Pimento Cheese. I grew up on pimento cheese.
