Aint No Chicken Like Shrimp Boat Chicken

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.

It is getting that time of the year again. If you do not know about South Carolina Weather, let me give you a little incite. One day the weather will be in the mid-sixties, on the other hand, the next day it will be mid-twenties. The weather is very drastic in the latter part of the year. For instance, today it is cold and dreary outside. Two days ago it was sunny and sixty-five. Because of this drastic weather changes, it makes great weather for flu season. That is why this is a great time to introduce my Easy Crock-Pot Chicken Noodle Soup to you. Continue reading “Easy Crock-Pot Chicken Noodle Soup”

Cheesy Biscuit Topped Chicken Pot Pie

Recipe by Stacy Little of Southern Bite

Cheesy Biscuit Topped Chicken Pot Pie

The first time I feel a slight nip in the air, I shift gears and my thoughts about cool and fresh summer salads morph into thoughts about the hearty, stick-to-your-ribs dishes that just say fall to me.  From soups, chilis, and stews, to one-dish meals like this Cheesy Biscuit topped Chicken Pot Pie, I just can’t get enough of them!  And you know, lots of people are intimidated by making their own biscuits, but it seriously couldn’t get much easier than these super-easy drop biscuits.  Yes, you’ve got to get the shortening cut into the flour, but don’t stress over it.  Get it good and blended and you’ll be fine.  And there’s no need to go out and buy a pastry blender if you don’t already have one, two large dinner forks work just as well.  Also, if you’re looking to put this together on a busy weeknight, just stop by the grocery store and pick up a rotisserie chicken and you can have this on the table in about 30 minutes.  And let’s be honest about these biscuits – they really are the star here.  You can skip the chicken pot pie part altogether and just make these biscuits by simply dropping the dough onto  a greased baking sheet and baking for 10 to 12 minutes.  🙂  Y’all enjoy!

Southern Food Junkie Road trip to Boone, NC

Can you believe its Fall?

Greetings fellow food junkies. This weekend My family and I went on a Southern Food Junkie Road Trip to Boone, NC. It is fall and the mountains are showing their colors. This is my favorite time of the year.kids-in-front-of-danl-boone-inn It is time for family gatherings, pumpkin everything, and beautiful colors. What a great time to be outdoors. This is also a great time for traveling.

On this Southern Junkie Road Trip, we visited several really great places. We started out on Friday afternoon heading out from our hometown.  Our first stop was supposed to be The Dan’l Boone Inn in Boone, North Carolina. When we arrived there the line was wrapped around the building so I made an executive decision based on the grows from my stomach, so we decided to wait till Saturday to try it out. Instead, we found an awesome place in downtown Boone, North Carolina called Our Daily Bread.   Continue reading “Southern Food Junkie Road trip to Boone, NC”
