Hooks, Terrytown, LA Report #337

I have a confession to make. I sometimes eat fast food fried chicken. There. I said it. Felt good to get that off my chest.

So I went out to get some to bring home for dinner. For some reason the door was locked so you couldn’t go inside, and there were about 10 cars in the drive through. No way I was waiting for that.

Figured I’d give this place a try. I’ve passed the little strip mall it’s located in and figured one day I’d stop in and see what they were about. Tonight turned out to be that day.

Don’t look for breast, legs or thighs here. Chicken wise they only sell fried chicken wings, Buffalo Wings, fried gizzards, livers, nuggets and tenders. They’ve also got some fried seafood and poboy sandwiches.

I decided on an 8 piece fried chicken wing, fried shrimp platter, onion rings, a crawfish pie and a crab cake.


When I ordered, the lady taking my order said it’d be about 20 minutes. That made me happy. I knew my food was being fried fresh! I also tried to order a side of French fries but she said they came with the dinners.

The fried chicken and shrimp were both very good! Well seasoned and a nice, crispy coating. I don’t like battered fries though. If you like them, then you’d like these. I like my fries plain.

When you get onion rings they should be different sizes, because if you cut an onion into rings, those rings will be different sizes. I knew it wasn’t a good sign when these were all the same size.

Does Burger King still have onion rings? I remember long ago when they first came out with them they tasted like they chopped up onions into bits, mixed them with cardboard, formed it into a paste, and formed the paste into rings which were battered and fried. That’s how these were. Beware.

Lastly, the crawfish pie and the crab cake. Both of which cost $2.99. I’ll just say one thing. What would you expect for $2.99? Well, that’s what I got!

I didn’t notice they had fried chicken gizzards until after I ordered. I love chicken gizzards and they’re hard to find in restaurants. I will be back to try those.
