Hartz Chicken Buffet opened today in Texas City and by all accounts was well received.
Mainland editor TJ Aulds reports spotting a respectable lunchtime crowd when he drove past the eatery, 2711 Palmer Highway in the building formerly occupied by Texas Seafood.
Surprisingly, I've gotten a lot of emails from readers over the months eager for the opening. Some said they were big fans of the yeast rolls at Hartz.
That's what I like about readers of this blog. Culinary interests are wide-ranging.
It’s been a really, really long time since I’ve eaten at a Hartz Buffet.
In high school, I was a fan of the okra and other vegetables at Hartz. But I preferred the spices in the chicken served by KFC and Popeye's more.
These days, my encounters with fast-food fried chicken is few and far between. I don't have the turbo-charged metabolism I did in high school.
Still, I can always live vicariously through others. Are you a fan of Hartz Chicken? If not, among the chains, which makes the best fried chicken? Biscuits?
