If you've got Southern on the mind, you're in luck. You'll find a new Chicken Salad Chick location at 3301 Vandercar Way in Oakley.
Chicken Salad Chick, which has locations in Florida, North Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas and Arkansas and now Ohio, specializes in chicken salad, offering a variety of flavors. Try the Olivia's Old South, which adds sweet pickles and egg; the Barbie-Q, which incorporates a hickey barbecue flavor; or the Fancy Nancy, featuring Fuji apples, seedless grapes and pineapple. Add pasta salad, macaroni and cheese or a seasonal green salad to your meal.
Chicken Salad Chick has made a good impression thus far, with a 3.5-star rating out of four reviews on Yelp.
Mia U., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Jan. 8, wrote, "All employees were very kind. Got a three-part combo: mac and cheese, potato soup and I picked the Jalapeño Holly. I really enjoyed all three items! My only knock is the price for the amount of salad you get."
And Mary H. wrote, "The from-scratch food was excellent! I had chicken salad on a croissant with a side of fruit - hubs had egg salad on a croissant with a side of loaded potato soup and chips - we both loved the little cookie that came with the meal - so good - hubs bought a couple to go!"
Chicken Salad Chick is now open from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. (It's closed on Sunday.)
